In a see-through land our reflections live. They call us Sounds. They are our Echoes. And they think that they must die when we do. Is this why children are disappearing from the Sound realm? Because someone wants their Echo to die? Twelve-year-old Will Cleary tries to escape the frightening answer. But dangers sweep him into that magical, see-through land. And there, in a fortress filled with castaway children, a 200-year-old riddle lies buried.

I think this is a great book. I plan on listening to it again with my kiddos. I think they will both love it. I am truly looking forward to more books by this author. I loved the fact that they used hebrew in the book instead of making up a language as many other tend too... I also personally love the language... Can't Wait For More!

I love Melinda Leighs books but I like I know whats going to happen before it happens. Parts are very simular to other books. Even from book to book... I know where the story is going next without reading the next story. They are a little predictable. BUT I do love her books!

This is by far my favorite series. I love the emotion that shows through. I love the way thr story is. It will break your heart and put it back together multiple times during you reading it, but those ups and downs are so worth it! I hope that someday they write a follow up story...

Now her secret life has been exposed, and her tormentor can’t hurt her anymore. Yet, some are still haunted by that night. The bruises may have faded, but scars and fears remain. How will she reclaim her life when she’s barely breathing?

In the affluent town of Weslyn, Connecticut, where most people worry about what to be seen in and who to be seen with, Emma Thomas would rather not be seen at all. She’s more concerned with feigning perfection - pulling down her sleeves to conceal the bruises, not wanting anyone to know how far from perfect her life truly is. Without expecting it, she finds love. It challenges her to recognize her own worth - at the risk of revealing the terrible secret she’s desperate to hide.
