The only reason this book is on my radar is because it was a part of theTumblr’s Reblog Book Club. Vivian Apple is set in a modern day America where a corporate leaning evangelistic church, The Church Of America, has taken over the country.
One morning dutiful daughter and all around good girl Vivian Apple wakes up to find her Church Of America believing parents missing and two holes in their bedroom ceiling. The rapture has happened and Vivian is all alone. But is it all real ?
Now Vivian Apple is breaking all the rules to find the truth, She’s not the old Vivian Apple anymore; shes’ Vivian Apple at the end of the world.
With her best friend and the knowledge that there has to be something more, Apple embarks on a cross country road tip to figure of what she believes. This book has an odd tone about religion that both questions and accepts the idea of belief,
This is my first Julia Whelan audiobook, Whelan has a broad range and a knack for teenage voices. I can’t wait to check out her other YA audiobooks.
Vivian Apple At The End of The World is one of the weird YAs where your not sure what’s going to happen next and like the characters you will question what’s is and isn’t real and what it means to believe.
