At least, thats what Reverend Beelson has told his congregation. Marinas mom believes him. So does Jeds dad. Thats why they drag Marina and Jed to join the reverends flock at a mountain retreat. From the mountaintop they will all watch the Righteous Conflagration that will end this world--and then they will descend and begin the world anew. 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 theyve just fallen in love? Told in alternating chapters from both Jeds and Marinas points of view, this first-ever collaboration between two masters of childrens literature is a story about faith and friendship, love and loss . . . and the things that matter most at the End of the World.
