world will end not on January 1, 2000 but on July 27, 2000. At least that's
what Marina's mother believes. Why would God choose Marina's birthday to
end the world? It doesn't seem quite fair to Marina but she and her family
belong to Reverend Beelson's Believers and that's what he believes. Reverend
Beelson takes the congregation to the top of a mountain in western Massachusetts
where exactly 144 Believers will be saved. In addition to Marina's church,
there are also Believers from Boston who join the group. Jed is not quite
a Believer but he needs to stay with his father. The story of two weeks
on the mountain awaiting the end of the world is told by Marina and Jed
in alternating chapters. Does the world end on July 27,2000? Read Armageddon
Summer to find out!
