Kicking off a riveting sci-fi trilogy, National Book Award winner Pete Hautman plunges us into a world where time is a tool - and the question is, who will control it? The first time his father disappeared, Tucker Feye had just turned thirteen. The Reverend Feye simply climbed on the roof to fix a shingle, let out a scream, and vanished - only to walk up the driveway an hour later, looking older and worn, with a strange girl named Lahlia in tow. In the months that followed, Tucker watched his father grow distant and his once loving mother slide into madness. But then both of his parents disappear. Now in the care of his wild Uncle Kosh, Tucker begins to suspect that the disks of shimmering air he keeps seeing - one right on top of the roof - hold the answer to restoring his family. And when he dares to step into one, he's launched on a time-twisting journey- from a small Midwestern town to a futuristic hospital run by digitally augmented healers, from the death of an ancient prophet to a forest at the end of time. Inevitably, Tucker's actions alter the past and future, changing his world forever.

this book is interesting and unique but it just falls short of 5 stars.

Fantastic pacing and creativity. Reminds me of the best of Philip Pullman and Jack Vance. A great beginning to the series. Now on to book two...

p.s., this is a teen novel that's great for adults too...

This book is amazing. Most books you can predict what is going to happen next, but this one keeps you on your toes.You never know what will happen on the next page. It's amazing.

Mind-boggling future time travel. Hautman doesn't shy away from the complexities of changing events in the past and future, although it can get a tad confusing. No wonder he'll need a trilogy to wrap it up, but I'm beginnign to wonder if anyone writes stand-alone teen titles anymore!


This book is cheerfuller to know that you are enjoying the story as well as the author. You must read it to read for yourself and say to other how grate the book was.
