There are so many moments Ruby Wright wishes she could change. The moment her dad uprooted her from California to live in backwoods Ohio with their new stepfamily. The moment she moved away without telling her best friend George she loved him. The moment a car accident ended her mother’s life.
But no one can rewrite time. At least, that’s what physics-obsessed Ruby believes.
Then she stumbles upon a lightning-powered tree—a doorway to a series of parallel universes. How many possible worlds will Ruby have to explore to find the one with the perfect combination of people, relationships, and experiences? And is she willing to risk everything she has to get back what she has lost?
With a deft blend of science and heart, Cristin Bishara’s thought-provoking debut novel explored the laws of time and space…and the even more mysterious nature of love and loss.
My Review: I’m surprised by this book. I actually enjoyed it way more than I thought I would. I’m not big on Sci-Fi, but Cristin has the power to suck you in.
Anywho….Ruby moved from Sunny California to Ennis, Ohio. Boring, not sunny, no friends, and well its not where she wants to be. Plus the school system stinks.Her step-sister needs a good attitude change and even a good whack. I can’t stand her. I only really liked Ruby.
She finds this tree and ends up finding a door and going through it and ending up in another world. You get a little Alice in Wonderland feel and it just adds to the awesomeness. Ruby is crazy smart, she quickly realizes that shes in a different version of her world. Starts thinking of scientific reasons as to why and how its happening. How can she get back, whats different in each world.Heck maybe she is about to prove the wormhole theory!
I enjoyed this book and would deff try another book by this author!
