“Fans of A Wrinkle in Time can’t missDimension Drift!” – Christina Trevaskis, The Book Matchmaker
Truth time. I go to a Learning Squirrel High School. Don’t judge.
On second thought, judge away. Learning Squirrel is one step above attending class in a junkyard. But what do you expect? Everything’s made out of garbage these days. At least, I have my freelance work to keep Mom and me housed, clothed, and fed. How? I’m your regular high school science geek for hire, except my work manipulates space-time. The good news is that these gigs pay really well; the bad news is that the government likes to kill people like me. Whatever. I’m not worried; hiding from their detection systems is easy for me.
Then I screw up one of my illegal projects. Badly.
In fact, things go so sideways that my house slips into two-dimensional space-time. The shift only lasts for a few seconds, but that’s long enough to set off a dozen government alarms. If those goons track me down, Mom and I are as good as dead. Long story short, I need to pay someone off, hide the evidence, and keep us safe.
Unfortunately, that means asking the Scythe for help. He runs the local underground crime scene and has absolutely no conscience…Or at least, I’m pretty sure he doesn’t. It’s hard to think straight when a guy’s that hot in an ‘evil Mafioso kingpin’ kind of way. Most importantly, the Scythe is a crime lord who can conceal my slip-up with a few clicks on his minion’s computer keyboards. But the man has his price. In this case, the Scythe wants me to finish a certain dimensional prototype for him in twenty-four hours. I can do it, but it might mean Learning Squirrel High gets blown up in the process. Oh yes, and there’s also my new hot classmate who may or may not be an alien…and he says he’ll do anything to help me.
This job won’t be easy, but I’ve gotten out of worse scrapes. Maybe.
The book is based on a dystopian world where everything runs on the will of the government. Science can only be used under their authority. Also, there is no need of people who are ill and unable to contribute to them. The whole story is based on a 16 year old girl Meimi. She lost her father and her elder sister Luci is missing for almost a year. Her mother is suffering from mental illness. Meimi has to take care of her mother and hide her from the government.
She is a very cool tech-girl. She works as a Freelancer for the crime lord known as Skythe. She creates and designs tech devices for the black market. It’s not that she likes doing anything unethical and wrong but she is left with no other choice. She also attends high school. Everything was going as usual until one day, she faces a chaos regarding her freelance work and everything starts to fall apart and she is in a mess!
Meimi is a strong character, she is genius. The whole story is very intriguing, adventurous and action packed! As it is just a prequel to the whole Dimension Drift series so the story focuses on setting up the plot and so it is a quick read but worth reading. The world build up is awesome. There is also a bit introduction of an alien guy named Thorne. Hopefully there will be much more about the romantic bonding between the two in the upcoming books. It was really enjoyable! Looking forward to the rest of the series. Thanks to Xpresso Book Tours and Christina Bauer for this amazing book 🙂
