FROM A KINNELON LIBRARY TEEN REVIEWER:
Alaric has lived lonesomely with his father for the past two years, ever since his mother died in a horrible train crash. Their Victorian mansion, Withern Rise, is slowly deteriorating. One day when Alaric is alone he stumbles into a parallel world in which his mother is still alive. There’s a problem, however, because someone else is living his life – a girl called Naia.
"A Crack in the Line" was extremely slow in the beginning when you are meeting the characters and learning their background. However, when these two characters meet, it is a novel full of mystery and suspense. After this book is finished it makes you think whether this scenario can actually happen. Very well-written.
TEEN LIBRARIAN'S NOTE: The second volume in this series, "Small Eternities," is out now, and we own a copy at the Library.
