Vivian Apple at the End of the World by Katie Coyle

This book was an awesome read. It was smart, sensitive, female-empowering and real. Also I have a very real soft spot for dystopia (and dystopia-esque) fiction.

Premise: The U.S., by a wide margin, believes the end is coming. Vivian Apple wakes up the morning after the expected Rapture to two absent parents and two holes in the roof of their bedroom – and 3,000 other missing people. In the chaos that follows, Vivian goes from a meek and well-behaved teenage girl to a brave traveler seeking the truth.

Read this if you want a smart, easy to read girl-power book about the end of the world.
