Tommy Smythe has gone missing. No one knows where he went, and nobody’s sure if he does either. His bike was found by the pull-out. You see, Tommy was, is, a science “geek” so to speak. He believes in wormholes and parallel universes and is really interested in quantum physics. For all anyone knows, he could’ve gone through a wormhole. Told from 21 unique perspectives that are all centered around the pull-out and connected to Tommy’s disappearance, Lindsey Lane’s debut gives you insight on the lives of people all sharing something in common, while having completely different stories.

My thoughts:

This book was very intriguing. It’s about the disappearance of Tommy, but the story isn’t actually really that focused on Tommy. It’s really cool, taking a look at all these characters lives and getting to know them a little bit. It basically is a book of short stories that are all related to Tommy and the pull-out, and that’s what made me want to pick it up and read it. I’m glad I did. There were a couple of chapters that were definitely for a more mature audience. I thought this book was a thought-provoking, fresh and different read that broadens your horizons to other people’s lives and shows you that nobody has it perfect. A nice added touch were the journal entries from Tommy’s journal in every chapter. They really made you think, and put a nice little bow on the gift. All in all, I would recommend this book for anyone in the mid/upper YA category who wants a quirky and intelligent read.

Oh, and the cover? It’s GORGEOUS ISN’T IT?!?!?! OMG, the color and the crispness of the picture and the blurred TURQUOISE words. I love it so much. 🙂
