Fifteen year old Jess is waiting for the world to end. Her evangelical father has packed up the family to drive to California, hoping to save as many souls as possible before the Second Coming. With her long-suffering mother and rebellious (secretly pregnant) sister, Jess hands out tracts at every break in the journey. As Jess's belief frays, her teenage myopia evolves into awareness about her fracturing family. Selected as a Barnes & Noble Discover pick, Mary Miller's radiant debut novel reinvigorates the literary road-trip story with wry vulnerability and savage charm.
