Sophie’s world is falling apart. Severe storms, tornadoes and damaging hail threaten everyone’s way of living. But since moving to Maudlow, Montana, things have gotten worse. Not just on the outside but her home life is frayed at the edges. Insanity, in the guise of her stepfather, makes her every moment feel like she’s walking a tightrope. She dare not miss a step.
In light of all the craziness, Sophie still misses her father, who mysteriously disappeared seven years ago. She thinks about him every night before drifting off to sleep. Until one night she’s sure that she hears from him – from across universes. He tells her she is only one who can save him and so begins Sophie’s journey to rescue her father as well as her own journey of self-discovery. And perhaps, with the help of some unlikely partners, she may be able to save both worlds from coming apart at the seams.
