The evening begins like many others. Lionel falls asleep while listening to his uncle tell stories. Ryan stays up reading and listening to music. Vicki goes out smoking pot with her friends. And Judd, tired of being told what to do, takes his father's credit card and heads to the airport in search of freedom. But in one shocking moment, everything changes. All over the world, millions of people suddenly vanish. Driverless cars crash on the highways, and planes fall through the sky without pilots.

Each of the four kids soon discovers friends and family members missing. Will they be able to learn the truth behind the disappearances?

Authors Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye base this thriller on Left Behind, their riveting book that has topped best-seller lists across the country and captured the attention of Hollywood producers. Narrator Scott Shina vividly portrays the end times through the eyes of the four young friends.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Theresa | 2/20/2014

    " a great way to break down the symbolism in the bible for kids "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elina | 2/17/2014

    " I just started this series and so far I really like it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diana | 2/14/2014

    " I loved the plot, I am always a sucker for books about the Rapture. The language of the book is very very young, so that kind of left me wanting more, but I should have read the adult version for that I guess. Personally, I felt kind of creeped out by it all, and I thought about would I allow my child to read something like this... my answer was no! I felt like this would scare the hell out of most kids, but that is my opinion about it. I liked the book and I plan on reading all of the kid ones and then I iwll start the adult versions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 2/11/2014

    " 4 non-believers Judd, Lionel, Vicki, Ryan are left alone to face life after the rapture. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauryn | 2/5/2014

    " I loved this book! It has a lot of suspense, and keeps you on the edge of your seat. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shari | 2/4/2014

    " Excellently done and match the kids series matches the adult series wonderfully. While I read the adult series, my son read the kids series. He's since read the adult series. They were as gripping as the adult series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 1/24/2014

    " The series is ok. Not the best, I will never read it a second time, but it was worth one read. I'm sure part of the reason I wasn't so into it is that I read it as an adult. Kids would probably like it better. It has a really good message that everyone should hear. The adult series is really good, so I definitely recomend giving that a try. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karah | 1/17/2014

    " I loved this book! It totally pulls you in. The rest of the series just gets better and better! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah Parker | 1/17/2014

    " loved it for christians ONLY!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bailey Carothers | 1/12/2014

    " its kinda interesting but a good story "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dave Hansen | 1/1/2014

    " Ugh. Sorry, not a fan. The setup is great-what happens when millions of children and adults suddenly vanish, and you're left behind? But the characters are one-dimensional, and the plot development unrealistic. PS They're not "Kids," they're Teens. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Calvin | 12/19/2013

    " A very interesting book with excitement "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 12/14/2013

    " read this the other night, it was sitting on Avary's pile of "rejects" to go back to the library. This is the first book in like 30 for the series. It's an interesting start.... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lyndsey | 12/12/2013

    " I know the book is about The Rapture but I found the religious aspects just too much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 12/2/2013

    " 4.5, more like "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikkki Cole Nyenr | 10/19/2013

    " I thought it was awesome. It left me hanging and it makes me want to read the rest of the series. There's SO MANY books in the series. I guess I have a way to go before I finish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zhivarriya | 10/9/2013

    " I read this book so fast thats how good it is. This book had to do with these kids and they lived totally different life styles and people started to vanish and they were left alone with no parents. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica H. | 9/11/2013

    " This was a good book. I bet I'll like the older versions too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candace Pleasant | 8/27/2013

    " the adult version is better "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kristina Marie | 8/25/2013

    " Poorly written and awfully scary for children. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shonsee | 8/25/2013

    " I love this book and I would reccomend it to all. There is an adult the version for you adults. I haven't read the second one yet but I'm getting there "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mikayle | 5/29/2013

    " I LOVED this book! It was about the rapture... where people who believe in God and that Jesus is the son of God they disappear in a blink of an eye. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristy | 3/22/2013

    " If I hadn't already read the real book, I probably would have thought this one was great...but since I DID read the adult book first, well then of course this one can't compare. Still good though; I'm sure if I had read it at a younger age I would have loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katrina | 2/15/2013

    " better than i thought it would be!~~ "
