As in Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time, math and science inform this mind-bending mystery about a girl who must work with the laws of the universe and trust the love of her family if she is to set her world right.

It’s the morning of Maisie’s tenth birthday, and she can’t wait to open her presents. Maisie is not a typical kid. What she wants most for her birthday are the things she needs to build her own nuclear reactor. But she wakes to an empty house, and outside the front door is nothing but an unsettling, all-consuming blackness—a shifted reality. Even for super-smart Maisie, these puzzling circumstances seem out of her control…or are they?

A heartbreaking, head-melting science fiction mystery from the superlative Christopher Edge.”—The Guardian

“[Edge]…has a magical way of distilling difficult concepts [like] relativity, gravity, time and space, infinity….He weaves these ideas into a high-energy thriller.”—The Times (UK)

Gripping, terrifying and eye-poppingly original. Grabs hold of your brain—then tugs at your heart.”—Jonathan Stroud, author of the bestselling Bartimaeus Trilogy

LAWS OF THE UNIVERSE, SPACE AND TIME: Readers’ imaginations will soar as intriguing possibilities are introduced in the life of Maisie Day and the sometimes surprising outcomes are explored.

PARENTS/FAMILY MATTERS: Kids will relate to ten-year-old protagonist Maisie Day’s interaction with her parents: the rebellious moments as she expresses her desire to be independent, as well as the tender moments when she realizes how much she still needs her parents.

SIBLING RIVALRY: The relationship between sisters, specifically a ten-year-old and a fifteen-year-old, varies from giving and receiving the silent treatment to the heartwarming appreciation of shared experiences. The range of emotions explored, both easy and challenging, is authentic in every way.

STEM: The Möbius strip, black holes, Moore’s Law—these are just some of the fascinating scientific and mathethematic topics woven seamlessly into the storyline.

BONUS BACK MATTER: Includes fun and fascinating bonus material, which expands on themes in the book, including laws of the universe and the mysteries of time and space.
