When a friend recently began a sentence with “As far as end-of-the-world novels go, …” I understood that a new genre had been realized.
In this darkly comedic road trip novel, seventeen-year-old Vivian Apple returns home after the alleged “Rapture” to find her devout parents gone and two mysterious holes in the roof. Vivian never believed in the Rapture, or the uber powerful Church of America. Now that she has been left behind, Vivian’s quest for the truth begins.
Vivian Apple at the End of the World by Katie Coyle is scheduled to be released on January 6, 2015. If you want to share this via Twitter, Coyle is active at this account.
