For the King family finding mom and getting her back was their main goal. But they must be careful what they say and to whom they tell it. Not everyone is going to believe them. Rescuing someone from time travel can be risky business. Especially when the authorities are called in do to questions of child abuse. If they tell the truth everyone will thin they are crazy they will lock them us and then investigate. Matter in fact, no one believes them. The house is dilapidated and unsafe says the city council. However, the 20 different portals into which can you enter just have a way of drawing you in and this book has the same effect. It will draw you in with every turn of the page. But beware..... it is a little scary! It's not for the faint hearted. They have spotted a sighting of mom and they aren't about to leave with the authorities until they get her back.
"Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become." -C.S. Lewis
