Epoch by Timothy Carter
In a note from the publisher to Mini Book Expo: "This one is a hilarious story, set in and around Toronto, about the end of the world and one teen’s attempts to get his family off the Earth before it all goes kablooey."
In his fourteen years, Vincent Drear has been sure of a few of things. First, the world is going to end. And until it does, he has two jobs: saving souls and protesting movies about boy wizards. But Vincent wonders if there's more to life than this. His suspicions are confirmed when he finds an elf at his school science fair. Vincent's excitement fades, though, as the elf informs him that his family's religion is right about one thing: the end of the world is coming-in forty-eight hours! Vincent can't save the world. His only hope is to get his family off Earth before demons wipe out everything, paving the way for a new epoch.
Timothy Carter combines humour, fantasy, sci/fi, and satire into a novel that is the missing link between The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and The Left Behind.
The end has come. But the fun has just begun.
