About the Book:

A horrific explosion levels part of the city and Camryn Kingfisher is the sole survivor.

Amidst controversy, conspiracy theories, and threats from government officials, Camryn longs for the truth. But the only person who she can turn to is a transparent boy in a lab coat named Quint. Unsure whether he’s a hallucination or a ghost, Camryn has no choice but to trust him as they become embroiled in a plot that is bigger than either of them realize. 

In a race where the fabric of time and space is at stake, they must figure out who caused the explosion before the culprit comes back to finish Camryn―and her city―off for good.


This title will be released on September 18, 2018.

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: This one was ok but could have been a lot better.  

Do I Recommend this book? If you don't mind slower books and well an unlikeable main character this one might be for you. I recommend trying it from the library first though. 

Notes and Opinions: The one thing that this book had going for it was the depiction of Camryn’s panic disorder. I have known people with them and this was spot on. My biggest issue with this one was that the thriller part of this title was great. But when they added the space and time part it just kind of fell apart for me. It didn't flow as well as it could have and well it just felt forced and just didn't work out at all.  

The characters in this one felt flat and one sided. I hated Camryn and just really thought she was a bully.  And the side characters felt flat as well.  

One part of the story that was really good were the twists however they just werent good enough to pull this one out of being kind of meh.
