A Junior Library Guild selection
Nick and Eryn’s mom is getting remarried, and the twelve-year-old twins are skeptical when she tells them their lives won’t change much. Well, yes, they will have to move. And they will have a new stepfather, stepbrother, and stepsister. But Mom tells them not to worry. They won’t ever have to meet their stepsiblings.
This news puzzles Nick and Eryn, so the twins set out on a mission to find out who these kids are—and why they’re being kept hidden.
The answers Nick and Eryn find could have reverberations far beyond one family’s happiness… to the fate of all humanity.
“A crisp, intriguing, and thought-provoking tale that hits the bull’s-eye for its middle-grade audience.”–Booklist, starred review
