Description

From Possess and Ten author Gretchen McNeil comes a deliciously eerie science fiction-horror story in the tradition of Lisa McMann's Wake trilogy and the movie Sliding Doors--now in paperback!

Josie Byrne's life is spiraling out of control. And just when she thinks it can't get worse, she starts having dreams about a girl named Jo. Every night at the same time--3:59 a.m. Jo's life is everything Josie wants: she's popular, her parents are happily married, and her boyfriend adores her. It all seems real, but they're just dreams, right? Josie thinks so, until she wakes one night to see a shadowy image of herself in the bedroom mirror. Except it's not her at all--it's Jo.

The two girls are doppelgngers whose universes overlap every twelve hours at 3:59. Fascinated by Jo's perfect world, Josie jumps at the chance to pass through the portal and switch places for a day. But Jo's world is far from perfect, and the stuff of nightmares lurks around every corner. And when Josie finds herself trapped there, her life becomes more dangerous--and more deadly--than she ever imagined.

Back cover copy

Josie Byrne's life is spiraling out of control. Her parents are divorcing, her boyfriend, Nick, has grown distant, and her physics teacher has it in for her. When she's betrayed by the people she trusts most, Josie thinks life can't get worse . . . until she starts having dreams about a girl named Jo every night at 3:59 a.m.

Jo's life is perfect: she's popular, her parents are happily married, and Nick adores her. Josie thinks she's just dreaming, until she wakes one night to see a shadowy image of herself in the bedroom mirror--Jo.

Josie and Jo are doppelgngers living in parallel universes that overlap twice a day at exactly 3:59. Fascinated, Josie jumps at the chance to cross through the portal and switch places for a day. But Jo's world is far from perfect. . . . Nick is not Jo's boyfriend, Jo's mom is missing, and at night, shadowy creatures feed on human flesh.

Josie is desperate to return to her own life. But there's a problem: Jo has sealed the portal, trapping Josie in this dangerous world. Can she find a way home before it's too late?
