Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—The reclusive leader of the Church of America has declared that the Rapture will occur in late March of an unspecified 21st-century year. While Believers prepare as they've been instructed, others host or attend Rapture's Eve parties. Sixteen-year-old Vivian Apple and her best friend Harpreet Janda fall into the latter category, but Vivian's parents are devout Believers. The morning after Harp's party, Vivian goes home to find her house empty. She searches, but there's no message from her parents: only two person-sized holes in the roof above their bedroom. Certain that her parents haven't really been "raptured," the teen sets out to drive across the country in search of them, along with Harp and the mysterious Peter, whom they met at the Rapture's Eve festivities. As their journey progresses, the trio discovers that post-rapture America has become paranoid, insular, and most of all, dangerous. The protagonists are more developed than the secondary characters, which rings true in this road trip novel. The plot moves slowly at times but keeps readers fully immersed in this bleak story. Recommend to mature readers, especially those who enjoy postapocalyptic narratives or fans of Jeri Smith-Ready's This Side of Salvation (S. & S., 2014).—Marlyn Beebe, Long Beach Public Library, Los Alamitos, CA


“Have you ever read a book that made you want to be a braver person, one that is beautiful and scary and funny and heartbreaking and genuinely weird all at once? [This] is that kind of book.”
“Smart, well-written, with great characters, this book will leave you thinking long after you turn the last page.”
“This coming-of-age story mixes in the Rapture, a road trip and a romance, creating an incredibly readable cocktail.”
Campus Circle
Vivian Apple at the End of the World offers a penetrating critique of religious intolerance along with a provocative ‘What if?’ — what if the Rapture is real? What happens to everyone left behind?”
Chicago Tribune
“A thoughtful and earnest work that has much to say about the world we human beings have created and why we must deeply question the faiths we chose.”
Boston Globe
* “Skillful plot twists, mordant humor, and careful characterizations make this a memorable coming-of-age story and noteworthy debut.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

* “A gritty, often troubling work that is nevertheless infused with humor and heart.”
Booklist, starred review

“For readers who like their realistic fiction with a whopping side of satire.”

“Coyle’s debut is a unique and unpredictable apocalypse story steeped in tension and creepy atmosphere, with intelligent commentary on Fundamentalism and corporate influence in America; it’s also an empowering coming-of-age adventure starring a relatable protagonist .”
—Horn Book Magazine
