"The Sinclairs are a family who have much; wealth, beauty, and dysfunction. Cadence, granddaughter and heir of the patriarch, is trying to piece together her memory after an accident in her fifteenth summer that took place on her families private island. A well told tale that will keep you guessing until the end. A great summer read!" --Amie

"The whole world has gone through the Great Disruption, with different geographical areas shifted into varying time periods, prehistoric to the far future. Almost one hundred years after the Great Disruption we meet Sophia, who is living with her Uncle Shadrack, a master cartologer. When her Uncle is kidnapped, seemingly for his knowledge, she and her friend Theo set off on a dangerous and amazing adventure to rescue him and find out secrets of the time rift. A bit of magic, mystery, adventure, through a wonderfully crafted world-this is one of my favorite books this year." --Amie
