MG FEAR STREET X SAL AND GABI BREAK THE UNIVERSE
When 12-year-old Sam blows into a bone flute and makes a wish for his parents to stay together, he wakes up in another reality where his siblings don’t exist. Desperate for answers, he meets Lena—a spunky girl who shares his fate. Together, they set out on a mission to unravel a centuries-old mystery and save their alternate selves from a vengeful healer before they’re trapped in the wrong reality forever.
Heights aren’t my thing. Being up high makes my head spin and butterflies surge into my stomach. The high dive at Lake Ingershall stretches out over the blue-green water, twenty feet above the glittery surface. Taunting me. Everyone else in the seventh grade can make the jump. Heck, even most of the sixth graders have done it. But not me.
My nine-year-old brother, Grayson, plops down on the beach blanket next to me. His curly black hair is dusted with sand, and his light brown skin is shiny from the sunscreen Mom made him put on when we got here.
“This is weird,” he says, his mouth puckering. “Why did they let us skip school and come to the beach?”
“Who cares?” I say, watching Mom and Dad chase our three-year-old sister, Addie, across the sand. “We’re at the beach on a school day. Derek’s gonna freak when I tell him.”
“Sam,” Grayson says, impatient. “Don’t you think Mom and Dad are being strange?”
I shake my head. “No.”
It’s just like Grayson to try and ruin an epic day at the beach by being grumpy. Never mind that Mom’s eyes were puffy as she drank her coffee this morning, and that Dad carried the beach chairs to the car with a sad smile on his face.
