Prism takes us to a slightly alternate universe in which medicine and health care do not exist, and in which sick people are allowed to die without any care. Set in New Mexico and California, the novel features three teens who fall through a cave at Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico while on a field trip. They are plunged into a frightening parallel universe—seven weeks in the past, in which their "normal" worlds of family and high school remain the same…except for the fact that no medicine exists and when people die in the street they are picked up and disposed of.

When light is refracted through a prism, the light that comes out is the same light that went in--but it's altered slightly. That's what happens to three teens on a school trip to Carlsbad Caverns. After a terrible crash in the desert, Kaida, Joy, and Zeke fall through a hole in space-time and awaken in their own beds in a mirror universe in which illness is a death sentence because medicine doesn't exist. Jenna Lamia's voice provides just the right ingenuousness to Kaida as the 14-year-old stumbles around in a world in which everything is changed. Lamia makes Kaida's confusion palpable and her suspicions reasonable. The story is a bit of a stretch, but tweens and younger teens will find enough excitement to keep them listening.
