As the end of the millennium approaches, a religious group moves to a mountain top in Massachussetts to await the end of the world. The Believers, sure of salvation, want to be ready to begin God's new order. Armageddon Summer is a gripping chronicle of their vigil, written by two teenage members of the group: Jed and Marina. At first, the Believers are absorbed in joyous preparations. But as the anticipated date approaches, their activities become more ominous. Barbed-wire fencing and guns appear. Living conditions in the camp begin to deteriorate. Drawn together, Jed and Marina struggle with doubts about their strictly regimented lives. In this unforgettable work, two of today's most popular authors of young adult fiction offer a realistic exploration of cult dynamics. The absorbing dual narration traces Jed and Marina's growing friendship as they try to understand the Believers' increasingly militant stance.
