Gr 7 Up—Seventeen-year-old Skylar occasionally gets the sense that things are horribly wrong but she can't figure out any specifics. She thinks these panic attacks mean she's crazy, until she meets Win, who helps her to realize that the fundamental wrongness she senses is the work of alien scientists using Earth as unwitting subjects in their time-manipulating experiements—Sky can tell when the aliens have changed history. Sky and Win must team up to save humanity. Narrator Whitney Dykhouse provides a realistic voice for Sky. In addition, the voices of the other characters are distinct and full of life.
VERDICT Listeners who enjoy alien invasion stories such as Rick Yancey's The Fifth Wave and David Klass's Stuck on Earth will be caught up in this audiobook.
