The world will end on Thursday, July 27, 2000. At least, that's what Reverend Beelson has told his congregation.

From Our Editors

Nebula Award-winner Jane Yolen and My Teacher is an Alien author Bruce Coville write alternating chapters in this millennium-inspired young adult novel. Marina and Jed have come to the mountain retreat with their parents, avid followers of the influential Reverned Beelson. The charismatic reverend told everyone that the world will end on July 27, 2000. Marina and Jed have more faith in the world than that -- and in the young love they discover together. Armageddon Summer crosses Yolen’s award-winning fantasy writing with Coville’s edgy style in a timely novel about first love at the end of the world.
