Penelope Grace, usually forgotten under the shadow of her twin sister’s perfection, tries her hardest to hide her freakish ability to see into anyone’s soul. Until she senses an unusual energy like a human shaped void in the universe. When Penny investigates the source, she gets tossed through a crack in time along with the cute boy next door. The Void follows them through history, increasing the dangers as if testing Penny. But what is it testing for? And why does it claim to know her better than even she knows herself? Even as Penny searches for answers, she must fight to survive the tragedies of both the past and future in order to get back home.
If you’re into time travel stories you have to check out this adorable book especially since Bassett managed to avoid those oh so boring clichés that seem to be a staple in this kind of story.
She found a way to make Penny’s journey emotionally touching, exciting and perceptive as she poured out some wonderful character development in this well-written adventure. She examined grief, love and self-esteem in a way that has you forgetting all of this is going on in a sci-fi ‘ish’ novel. Her empathy was beautiful to watch as it unfolded amidst an emotionally charged storyline. She practically makes emotions into their own characters in this book.
Bassett still threw a twist towards the conclusion that will leave you wanting a sequel.
