For as long as 17-year-old Alex Wayfare can remember, she has had visions of the past. Visions that make her feel like she's really on a ship bound for America, living in Jamestown during the Starving Time, or riding the original Ferris wheel at the World's Fair. But these brushes with history pull her from her daily life without warning, sometimes leaving her with strange lasting effects and wounds she can't explain. Trying to excuse away the aftereffects has booked her more time in the principal's office than in any of her classes and a permanent place at the bottom of the social hierarchy. Alex is desperate to find out what her visions mean and get rid of them. It isn't until she meets Porter, a stranger who knows more than should be possible about her, that she learns the truth: Her visions aren't really visions. Alex is a Descender - capable of traveling back in time by accessing Limbo, the space between Life and Afterlife. Alex is one soul with fifty-six past lives, fifty-six histories. Fifty-six lifetimes to explore: the prospect is irresistible to Alex, especially when the same mysterious boy with soulful blue eyes keeps showing up in each of them. But the more she descends, the more it becomes apparent that someone doesn't want Alex to travel again. Ever. And will stop at nothing to make this life her last.

About the Author:

When she's not writing about teens who save the world, M. G. moonlights as a web designer and social media marketing buff, and she's the current mastermind lurking behind the hugely popular website YABooksCentral.com, a social network for YA (and kids!) book lovers. Places you might find M. G. hiding: in her creaky old house nestled in Michigan pines, sipping coffee on her porch, playing in leaf piles, cooking over campfires, and dipping her toes in creek beds.

Review:

"Beautiful prose, an intelligent plot, and a heroine as fabulous as she is unique--I couldn't put it down!" ~ C. J. Redwine, author of the Defiance Trilogy "a non-stop thrill-a-minute ride with some quick detours in our thinking necessary. I did not want this book to end, and will anxiously await the next book in the sequel! Looking for a good book? This YA sci-fi adventure is a good book!" - Looking For A Good Book
