Product description


Kessler nicely captures Mia's teen relationship with her mom and the thawing of her cool relationship with Gran. The storm that topples Luffsands' homes into the sea resonates with today's natural-disaster news.
--Kirkus Reviews

[This] plucky fantasy-adventure hums along with genuine contemporary characters at the helm.
--Publishers Weekly

Kessler, best known for the Emily Windsnap series, creates a number of sympathetic characters and a vivid sense of place in this unusual novel.
--Booklist Online

The eventual revelation of Grandad's secret is a rather delightful headscratcher that will have readers revisiting various plot points to see just exactly how the puzzle pieces all fit together. ... [R]eaders who enjoyed the mind-bending twists in [Rebecca Stead's "When You Reach Me"] may appreciate the shifts in the space-time continuum here.
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

A thought-provoking adventure.
--School Library Journal
