About the book

The world will end on Thursday, July 27, 2000. At least, that’s what Reverend Beelson has told his congregation. That’s why Marina and Jed and their parents have joined the rest of the Reverend’s flock at a mountain retreat to await the end of the world. But this world has only just begun for Jed and Marina, two teenagers with more attitude than faith. Why should the world end now, when they’ve just fallen in love for the first time?

Reviews

Yolen and Coville, writing in alternating chapters..., explore their rich, thought provoking theme with the perfect balance of gripping adventure and understated pathos, leavened by a dollop of humor.—Booklist

Convincing and compelling.”—School Library Journal

Providing action, romance and a provocative message, this novel could well get teens talking.—Publishers Weekly

In this page-turner...the authors pull off the remarkable feat of making the sacred tangible, of delineating what it means to believe.—Kirkus Reviews
