Description

Product Description From Possess and Ten author Gretchen McNeil comes a deliciously eerie science fiction–horror story in the tradition of Lisa McMann's Wake trilogy and the movie Sliding Doors—now in paperback! Josie Byrne's life is spiraling out of control. And just when she thinks it can't get worse, she starts having dreams about a girl named Jo. Every night at the same time—3:59 a.m. Jo's life is everything Josie wants: she's popular, her parents are happily married, and her boyfriend adores her. It all seems real, but they're just dreams, right? Josie thinks so, until she wakes one night to see a shadowy image of herself in the bedroom mirror. Except it's not her at all—it's Jo. The two girls are doppelgängers whose universes overlap every twelve hours at 3:59. Fascinated by Jo's perfect world, Josie jumps at the chance to pass through the portal and switch places for a day. But Jo's world is far from perfect, and the stuff of nightmares lurks around every corner. And when Josie finds herself trapped there, her life becomes more dangerous—and more deadly—than she ever imagined.

I jumped at every creaking floorboard in my house and on the page. This is sure to be a teen thriller classic!” (Nancy Holder, Bram Stoker Award winning author of THE SCREAMING SEASON) Praise for TEN: “TEN is a real page turner!
