“Fans of A Wrinkle in Time can’t miss Dimension Drift!” – Christina Trevaskis, The Book Matchmaker

Truth time. I go to a Learning Squirrel High School. Don’t judge.

On second thought, judge away. Learning Squirrel is one step above attending class in a junkyard. But what do you expect? Everything’s made out of garbage these days. At least, I have my freelance work to keep Mom and me housed, clothed, and fed. How? I’m your regular high school science geek for hire, except my work manipulates space-time. The good news is that these gigs pay really well; the bad news is that the government likes to kill people like me. Whatever. I’m not worried; hiding from their detection systems is easy for me.

Then I screw up one of my illegal projects. Badly.

In fact, things go so sideways that my house slips into two-dimensional space-time. The shift only lasts for a few seconds, but that’s long enough to set off a dozen government alarms. If those goons track me down, Mom and I are as good as dead. Long story short, I need to pay someone off, hide the evidence, and keep us safe.

Unfortunately, that means asking the Scythe for help. He runs the local underground crime scene and has absolutely no conscience…Or at least, I’m pretty sure he doesn’t. It’s hard to think straight when a guy’s that hot in an ‘evil Mafioso kingpin’ kind of way. Most importantly, the Scythe is a crime lord who can conceal my slip-up with a few clicks on his minion’s computer keyboards. But the man has his price. In this case, the Scythe wants me to finish a certain dimensional prototype for him in twenty-four hours. I can do it, but it might mean Learning Squirrel High gets blown up in the process. Oh yes, and there’s also my new hot classmate who may or may not be an alien…and he says he’ll do anything to help me.

This job won’t be easy, but I’ve gotten out of worse scrapes. Maybe.

First of all, I'll read whatever Christina Bauer writes! Second of all, I screamed with joy when I got the notification for the release of Dimension Drift. This will probably be a short review to cover the basics and I won't get into the plot itself because this is a novella and I don't want to spoil it by accidentally revealing even the smallest details. I love the author's writing style and like her previous books I've read, this one also managed to completely transport me into a different world! I got immersed in the story as soon as I started reading it and basically bawled my eyes out when I actually realized how short it really was! The plot itself was very original and I immensely enjoyed how the story progressed! I seriously wasn't expecting the twist that came out of nowhere towards the last couple of chapters and I'm desperate to find out what'll happen next! All the characters introduced in the novel were interesting and three dimensional, which is very impressive for such a short novel! They really managed to achieve a certain depth that's not very easy to come by in books and it really blew my mind! 

Overall, I cannot recommend Dimension Drift enough! I absolutely loved it and read it in a matter of hours. It was impossible to put down and ended way sooner than I was expecting! I was seriously not ready for that ending and I'm pretty sure you won't be either, if and when you choose to read it!
Christina Bauer knows how to tell stories about kick-ass women.

This young adult best seller has driven more than 500,000 ebook downloads and 9,000 reviews on Goodreads and retailers. 

Bauer has also told the story of the Women’s March on Washington by leading PR efforts for the Massachusetts Chapter. Her pre-event press release—the only one sent out on a major wire service—resulted in more than 19,000 global impressions and redistribution by over 350 different media entities including the Associated Press. 

Christina graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School with BA’s in English along with Television, Radio, and Film Production. She lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.
