After surviving the strangest night of their lives in the Cleveland suburb of Stony Stream, intrepid young newspaper deliverers Erin, Mac, and Tiffany find themselves launched from 1988 to a distant and terrifying future… the year 2016.
What would you do if you were suddenly confronted by your 12-year-old self? 40-year-old newspaper reporter Erin Tieng is about to find out in this action-packed story about identity, mortality, and growing older in the 21st century.
This just keeps getting stranger. Time travel. Definitely NOT aliens. Big McLarge-Huge water bears and maggots. Weird Apple products. Adults in the future who speak like a combination of Pidgin and text lingo. Also, I keep forgetting this is set in Cleveland. Literally 50 minutes away from me. It’s nice to read something set in a familiar city.
I liked this one more because I got a lot more exposition, but I also liked it *less* because there wasn’t a lot of explanation. This one seemed very much like a plot set-up volume, and that’s fine. I just wasn’t super blown away. Except by Big McLarge-Huge water bears. They were gross af. ONWARD TO VOLUME 3!
