It was the first day of school and anxieties were running high. For certain there was the excitement of moving up a grade, but there was also the dread of anything and everything that could go wrong. Not only were the possibilities endless, they were totally out of your control. Whether or not you were accepted rested squarely on the shoulders of the popular kids. Suppose you were too short or too tall; too smart or not smart enough; too rich or too poor; or just plain different?
These thoughts were fresh on the minds of Otis, Chandler and Marissa. Three pre-teens whose paths had never crossed, although they lived in the same town in Connecticut. Their backgrounds were so diverse they may as well have lived worlds apart. That was all about to change when on their way to school a series of bizarre events lump them together. Literally!
Join them on this unreal journey to alternate realities never before revealed. Go back in time to a parallel past, the All Agos. Coexist in a present experience that mirrors your own, the Ne’er Now. Finally and with greater understanding, manifest in a future of your creation, the Will Be Once.
Then you will have come closer to achieving …as it should.

This was a really fun book, I think young adults and adults would enjoy this book just as much as middle grade. the book is a little long and a bit scientific but truth be told kids are more knowledgeable in science and technology these days anyway.
The plot did start a little slow, but it is one of those circumstances I think it almost needed to to build the world that our main characters live in. Once the book started and got moving I had no trouble following and turning the pages of this book.
I love when authors write characters that you would never think would mesh well come to together and in fact do mesh well. I think writing about accepting others is important for us as humans to learn and accept others no matter how different they are, because let’s face it if something crazy in life happened we would have to accept each other right? Ok that is enough the philosophical stuff.
This book was great and I would certainly let my kids (if I had kids) read this book. I enjoyed the book. The book does start slow but it is a challenge to write a world that will involve a parallel universe of sorts. The author does a great job building the world and developing the characters that by time you finish the book it is wrapped up niceley and you understand and yes will like the story.
Trudie L. Hayes’ personal story and family life influenced her mission to spread the core values of self-acceptance, self-esteem, and self-love to children and persons of all ages. An affiliation with physically and mentally disabled adults and children spanning many years is a major contributing factor. The caregiver role has been paramount throughout much of her life, even while furthering her education or working full-time in a corporate setting.
These experiences have given her a deep understanding of the trials and struggles associated with a compromised existence. As well as the inspiration and joy derived from living life to one’s personal best.
It is through these myriad life experiences that Hayes began writing and registering several related trademarks. With a grander vision of promoting confidence and self-worth.
Born and raised in Connecticut, Hayes still calls the Nutmeg State home. The oldest of two children, she remains close to her siblings. When Hayes is not writing or managing her business, she dedicates her time to other creative outlets and artistic pursuits. Hayes has a deep appreciation and passion for music in its many forms; she enjoys writing song lyrics, performing, and has an affinity for Jazz.
