Picking up where The Underground
left off, Busted!
logs in as Book 7 in the Left Behind: The Kids series. And the bustee, of course, is Vicki, public enemy number one at Nicolae Carpathia High School, wanted for her part in producing The Underground
, the secret newspaper she and her Young Trib Force buddies put out to spread the truth of the Rapture and U.N. Secretary-General Carpathia's evil plans for world domination. Refusing to rat out her friends, Vicki gets thrown into the lion's den--Northside Detention Center--where the resident chaplain tries to sell her on the Global Community Faith, a warped and watered-down vision of God. Lionel, Ryan, and the others pray for her as all around them more signs of the end times appear: Israel begins rebuilding the temple in Jerusalem while Carpathia solidifies his media monopoly. The plot reaches a fevered pitch as Judd and Price fly off to the Mideast to join forces with born-again Jews.
The Evangelical Christian science fiction series Left Behind: The Kids is a youth-oriented story line based on Jerry B. Jenkins and Tim LaHaye's bestselling Left Behind. (Ages 9 to 12) --Paul Hughes
