Set in New Mexico and California, the novel features three teens who fall through a cave at Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico while on a field trip. They are plunged into a frightening parallel universe - seven weeks in the past, in which their "normal" worlds of family and high school remain the same...except for the fact that no medicine exists and when people die in the street they are picked up and disposed of.

I loved this book! Got it because I'm a sci fi/mystery fan and my 13 year-old and 16 year-old nieces were taking a road trip with me. We all enjoyed it immensely, and it kept us interested 'til the end. Only criticism is that the narrator didn't always do such a great job making the voices distinguishable, but she's young.
This is a gripping story that will hold you right up until the end. Just outside the boudaries of reality, this one will make you think!
