Left Behind: The Kids, in contrast to the adult series, is the fate of a group of young men and women as they struggle to cope with the horrid apocalypse. Their parents have all disappeared, everyone's getting beheaded right and left, everything's out to get them, and the adults that are left don't give a crap if the people they're threatening with death all range in age from eighteen to thirteen. A thirteen-year-old died in an earthquake in the beginning of the series. Gruesomely. One Chinese kid gets drugged by his own dad in order to force him to take the Mark of the Beast. Also, half the adult figures that the younger characters respect end up getting killed off.
