Readers will enjoy McNeil’s latest —compelling and fast paced, with easily understood explanations for the science of the novel and an interesting mythological twist. Despite unresolved plot threads and a somewhat obvious storyline, Josie is a strong enough character to make this a solid contribution to the science fiction genre.

When Josie’s dream of having an alter ego manifests in the form of a parallel universe, she jumps at the chance to switch lives for a day. But she quickly discovers this alternate world is anything but perfect. When the fate of both worlds is in jeopardy, she must determine whom she can trust and discern truth from lie, before it’s too late.
