Annotation: A young girl travels through space and time to rescue her father, a scientist who mysteriously disappeared while working on a top-secret government project, from an evil force that threatens to destroy her family and planet.

Book Talk:
What if, in the course of conducting scientific research for the government, your Dad stumbled upon an unbelievable discovery?

What if time travel wasn’t just theoretically mathematically possible, but in fact actually possible?
But what if something went horribly wrong and through a scientific accident your Dad mysteriously disappeared?

Would you trust three strange women with questionable names who don’t seem quite human to transport you throughout the universe on a rescue mission?

What if you faced unimaginable creatures and forces on unfamiliar planets to find your Dad, but in the process lost your little brother?

How far would you go and how much would you risk to save your family and your planet and return everyone home safely?
