warning, Amber finds herself plunged into
confusing and scary events from the past. She tries to keep these experiences
secret out of fear that people will think she’s making them up or losing her
How can the past be hanging around the present for her to slip
into? She researches what “brainy people” (physicists) say about time
and learns it’s more complicated than simply what clocks and calendars measure.
Can Amber keep both her sanity and
her sense of humor in the midst of all this mysterious weirdness?
She learns things she hadn't previously known during some of her visits to the past, such as
what really happened to her family’s dog. She wishes a similar
visit could solve the puzzling disappearance
of her little brother.
Still, she’s desperate
to figure out how
to stop slipping into the past before she becomes stuck there forever.
