Bullied teenager Addy Decker has had enough of her miserable life. One night, just as she’s about to end it all, a beautiful boy appears in her bathroom, saving her life. At once intrigued and a little scared, she touches the boy and he opens her eyes to a whole different way of life. Addy finds herself in the presence of the Jaunters, a group of people on a mission to magically time travel to the past and save people at risk, as every life saved brings new life to the dead world of the future. Addy is still wrapping her head around it all when her mom is attacked by a Hell Hound. Alongside her new companions, Addy jaunts to save her, but one of them disappears with Addy’s mom to an unknown destination. Now it’s a race against time, in every dimension, to find the rogue Hell Hound, and Addy’s mom, before a plague is unleashed that will infect the fabric of history itself.

This is an unusual book with an involved story about a young girl who is about to take her own life when a boy arrives in her bathroom to stop her. The second time this happens she follows the boy to a place in the future where young people try to stop evil taking over the world and destroying it.

The girl, Addy, is a strange girl, a mixture of her background and the curves life has thrown at her. Intrigued by the future she still longs to go home.

I’m sure the author knew exactly what was happening, but I have to admit I found this story really difficult to follow. Even though I read through to the end I’m still not sure of the point of the story.

I’ve no doubt other readers will find some depth to the book, indeed I hope they do as the actual writing and grammar was excellent.
