Vivian Versus The Apocalypse (or Vivian Apple at The End of the World) by Katie Coyle
Seventeen-year-old Vivian Apple never believed in the evangelical Church of America, unlike her recently devout parents. But when Vivian returns home the night after the supposed “Rapture,” all that’s left of her parents are two holes in the roof. Suddenly, she doesn’t know who or what to believe. With her best friend Harp and a mysterious ally, Peter, Vivian embarks on a desperate cross-country roadtrip through a paranoid and panic-stricken America to find answers. Because at the end of the world, Vivan Apple isn’t looking for a savior. She’s looking for the truth.
Suddenly the glow I felt upon entering Pittsburgh, that sense of safety and security, is gone. Driving into my neighbourhood, I realise I’ll have to adjust to new version of my old city.
