The events of The Glass Sentence transformed the world, as well as the life of fourteen year old Sophia Tims. Since then she's continued searching for clues to her parents' disappearance, combing Boston's archives and libraries. Across the country, her friend Theo is searching, too. When Sophia learns that her mother's diary and the story of her parents" fate is in a distant archive, she makes a split second decision and sets off with an almost complete stranger on a sea voyage to a place where she knows no one. Weeks later, Theo returns to Boston and immediately sets off on a new voyage of his own. This book is written in alternating voices, studded with extracts from Minna Time's diary, and filled with all manner of wonders, including startlingly new kinds of maps.
Sofia is still processing the horrific truth of what happened when she and three friends performed an exorcism that spiralled horribly out of control. Ever since that night, Sofia has been haunted by bloody and demonic visions. Her therapist says they're all in her head, but to Sofia they feel chillingly real. She just wants to get out of town, start fresh someplace else...until her mother dies suddenly, and Sofia gets her wish.
