Description

When Winter's dad goes missing during his nightly patrol of the wood, it falls to her to patrol the time portals and protect the travelers who slip through them. Winter can't help but think there's more to her dad's disappearance than she's being told.

She soon finds a young man traveling in the wood named Henry who knows more than he should. He believes if they can work together to find his missing parents, they could discover the truth about Winter's dad.

The wood is poisoned, changing into something sinister - torturing travelers lost in it. Winter must put her trust in Henry in order to find the truth and those they've lost.

Bobulski's eerie debut is filled with friendship, family, and the responsibilities we choose and those we do not.

Review quote

Henry and Winter share flirtatious repartee and a sizzling chemistry, but the wood takes center stage as the main character and driving force of the plot. This interesting twist in storytelling makes this title a standout. VERDICT This provocative debut is a must-have for collections where fans of time travel are looking for their next fix. --School Library Journal

The concept is intriguing, and this is a good buy for larger collections. --Booklist

An ill-fated but still powerful romance, a warped good/bad guy with honorable but flawed intentions, and time travel portals--there's plenty to recommend in this clever novel. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

This well-written debut is sufficiently eerie and fast-paced. Readers will enjoy Winter's confidence and cunning as she seeks the truth. Hand this to readers craving exciting and enjoyable twists on time-travel. --VOYA

"A fast-paced fantasy with a time-travel twist, a forest that comes alive with dark forces, magical benevolent fireflies, friendship, sacrifice, and a satisfying conclusion, make for an absorbing read." --Kidliterati.com
