    Reviewed by Erikka Adams aka "The Bookbinder" for

    "Birds fly from branch to branch. A gust of wind sends leaves skittering across the patio floor. Storm clouds gather and darken a turbulent sky...Sirens pierce the moment...I reach for the door. `Josh, wait!' The urgency in dad's voice stops me cold. He's looking up. I follow his eyes...Dropping down through the clouds, silent like a spider on a web, is a massive black sphere."

    What would you do if one day you couldn't leave your house anymore? And if you did, these giant black spheres hovering throughout the sky would zap you and you'd disappear FOREVER? Would you try to stay alive inside a house, a car, a hotel, or wherever you happened to be, or ...would you choose to go outside?

    Megs got trapped in a parking garage. Josh and his dad got stuck at home. Every day, they manage to survive one more time by scavenging food from empty cars or from eating one more canned good from the pantry. But how much longer can they hold out? How long will the black spheres be there, hovering... waiting?

    When will the black spheres finally DO something? Or is it really the other people in the hotel Megs has to worry about? And is Josh's dad more of a threat than the black spheres? It takes more than hope to stay alive in this crazy, black sphere-filled story.

    Find out what happens when the world as people know it gets suspended in an eternal Now, with no end in sight and no way to fight the black spheres.
