Not bad, not as good as the adult books, but still disagree with the theology

This book (and really the series) is relatively well engaging (I never did read ALL 48 of the kids books, after awhile you just wanted them to be finished & stopped caring. I did read all 12 of the adult novels). The reason these aren't as good as the "originals" is because they're adapting the story, but instead of just abridging it for children they attempt to create a parallel & intersecting storyline (it only intersects on this side, though. No mention of these kids in the adult books). The result is acceptable. However, I have beef with it's theology. If you believe in pre-tribulation you will probably love this book. As that's not what I believe about the end times, I wish this book didn't espouse that view. If the book leads people to Jesus, though, I say it's a job well done.

Just like the adult series but watered down a bit. Teens love them.

I read all the adult and all the kids series. I enjoyed them all very much. They helped me to understand the book of revelations better. My daughter is now reading them and really enjoying them, so I am trying to get the whole set of both.

My son read this book, and he enjoyed it. If it is anything like the adult series, then it is very good for young readers.

In a moment, millions of people vanish without a trace. Four teenagers left behind when their families disappear struggle for answers as they try to make sense of what happened. I thought this was an interesting young adult novel about the rapture and what could possibly happen when the event occurs.
