Shy, thirteen-year-old Zylia has always known she was different. Most teenagers feel unnoticed and unseen, but for Zylia, it’s something much worse. She’s disappearing from this world and doesn’t know how to stop it. At times, she’s not sure she wants to. Until she stumbles across a family mystery surrounding the disappearance of her great-aunt Angelica years earlier. During her quest to unravel the mystery, Zylia discovers she’s able to cross the boundary and enter the “in between” world. Now, it’s up to Zylia to save herself before she’s trapped “in between” forever.
Warning: This is an emotional story that makes you think about own identity.
First of all, I would like to say thank you the Shannon and Misty for the book. It was a real pleasure to read it and a great way to start my 2018, this being my second book of the year.
Second of all, I would like to say that I was pleasantly surprised. When I was considering to read the book, I came in reading with an assumption- that it was going to be really emo and another over-exaggerated tale about a teenager who thought that their life was depressing. Oh my goodness, you have no idea how good it felt to find it not so.
This is a great book with deep characters and a thorough story line where everything fits like a good puzzle. I like the message that this books sends and how I can think about it a month later after reading it.
Recommended to teens and older.
