Convince us to read the book: There was just the right balance between boringness and "that is so cool it just blew my mind." I liked the book a lot and I would love to say there is no room for improvement, but that would be a lie. There are only that a few things I noticed that the author could fix.
1. The was a time where the author lost me for second or two because of flashback and I had to reread the page.
2. It says in Ruby's book that there are supposedly hundreds of thousands of worlds, but she can only get to 10.
3. The second half of the book is about Ruby in Universe 4 and the other SIX are rushed into the last 20 to 30 pages of the book.
Memorable or Forgettable: The book actually was kind of forgettable, sadly. The plot was fresh and kind of exciting, but it started and ended there. The characters were cookie-cutter characters and the setting was really bland.
Cover: The cover is really cool and it definitely reflects the contents of the book. It catches the eye with the bright colors on a black background.
Age Range: 14 through 15
Quality: 4Q Better than most
Popularity: 3P Some teen appeal
Annotation: Sometimes life sucks, like your dad suddenly remarries after 11 years and moves you from California to Ohio, to move in with his new wife and her psychopath daughter. But what if you could change that? When Ruby finds that a tree that was struck by lightning can take her to different dimensions, she suddenly finds infinite possibilities at her fingertips.
