This week I'm picking:
Vivian Apple at the End of the World by Katie Coyle
Expected publication: January 6th 2015 by HMH Books for Young Readers
Sixteen-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.
Why I'm Waiting:
This looks really interesting. I don't like "religious" books, but this looks like a great story, that has a bit of skepticism, but may treat religion respectfully. Plus, ROAD TRIP. That will always get my attention.
