1985. The death of Eleanor's twin sister tears her family apart. Her father blames her mother for the accident. When Eleanor's mother looks at her, she sees only the daughter she lost. Their wounded family crumbles under the weight of their shared grief.

1993. Eleanor is fourteen years old when it happens for the first time... when she walks through an ordinary door at school and finds herself in another world. It happens again and again, but it's only a curiosity until that day at the cliffs. The day when Eleanor dives... and something rips her out of time itself.

And on the other side, someone is waiting for her.

My thoughts: This is an interesting story about grief and depression! While it is labeled as a YA title, some of the topics are pretty heavy and perhaps geared towards a more mature audience.
I like how this book starts out telling the story of two young women, one who battles with depression and feels the ocean calling to her, and the other (a couple of generations later) who loses her twin sister. Some of the trips down the rabbit hole were hard to wrap my mind around, but it all comes together in the end! This is an interesting book, and I look forward to reading more by Jason Gurley!
I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
