The biggest compliment she can give a book is that it was impossible to put down. She currently lives near Salt Lake City with her husband, three kids and a cat.

This book got me hooked almost from the beginning. It is about a 17 year old girl, Narissa, and the alternate reality that she confusingly finds herself trapped in. Narissa is a well-fleshed out character who really makes you care about her and her journey. The book starts out where she suddenly finds herself out in the woods, injured, and sure that she is being followed. She learns rather quickly that she isn't in "Kansas" anymore. She is now in a place called The Refuge and she doesn't know if she will ever get back to her own reality.
Most of the characters that Narissa meets are very interesting. The only ones I felt could have used some more dimensions were the two oldest people on the counsel.
This was a fun ride and I look forward to reading the next two books in this trilogy. If the journey is as interesting and the characters as real as in book one, then I know that I will be thoroughly entertained.
