No surprise that this was an excellent book. All the others have been. This series really gives you something to think about. I've always known about, and believed in, the Rapture and I always knew that the saved and the kids would go, but I never gave any thought to the teenagers who could be left behind all alone. Each book leaves you wanting more. I can't wait to get the next book, yet I don't want the series to be over. My family is reading the series together, and the 57 year old is enjoying it as much as anybody. The recommended for ages 10-14 should say 10+ because anybody can enjoy this book.
