Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

When a book’s first paragraph includes the terms photo laser module, beam splitter, and vacuum dome, you know you are in for some geeky sci-fi fun. Josie, 16, is the geek in question, a mostly ignored high-school brain whose mother is known for her work on creating micro black holes. Then an experiment goes—guess what?—horribly awry, and Josie begins seeing her twin, Jo, from a parallel universe via an antique mirror. Twice a day, at exactly 3:59, the two can communicate. They decide to step through and swap lives for a day, a fine idea until Josie discovers that Jo’s world is infested with the Nox, vicious monsters that feed on humans at night. Maybe even worse, Jo is in no hurry to come back home. Logic can get a bit strained, and the science is kinda goofball, but McNeil’s movie-quick setup speed and humorously inventive language (Josie needed to spend some time perving around the house) make her a very welcoming author who succeeds at injecting fresh verve into some stalwart sci-fi concepts. Grades 8-11. --Daniel Kraus
