Armageddon Summer - by Jane Yolen
This summer, the world will go up in flames. Or so the followers of Reverend Raymond Beelson. Only the faithful few, hiding out in a mountain camp will escape Armageddon. Two teenagers, Jed and Marina, are dragged to the cult's mountain top retreat by their families. Marina's family have been believers for years and she's worried and upset that they're leaving her dad behind to fry. Jed thinks it's a crock. That it's just his flaky dad's latest craze that will wear off when this so-called Armageddon fizzles out.The FBI agent hidden in the camp is afraid that the cult will turn violent. Both Jed and Marina never expected to find love that strange summer.
One way or another, for Jed and Marina, their world will go up in flames.
Read Armageddon Summer by Jane Yolen and Bruce Coville.
