A collection of five time-spanning, interconnected novellas that weave a subtle science-fictional web that stretches from the present into the future as our world collides with a mysterious alternate universe.

Each of these stories presents a teen trying to find his or her way in unusual circumstances. Five teens, five futures.

Dylan develops a sixth sense that allows him to glimpse another world.

Ten years from now, Brixney must get more hits on her social media feed or risk being stuck in a debtors’ colony.

Thirty years from now, Epony scrubs her entire online profile from the web and goes “high-concept.”

Sixty years from now, Reef struggles to survive in a city turned into a virtual game board.

And more than one hundred years from now, Quinn uncovers the alarming secret that links them all.

Going beyond the usual boundaries of YA fiction, this will appeal to fans of authors—like Marcus Sedgwick, Patrick Ness, Kelly Link, M. T. Anderson, and David Mitchell—who wonder about the future and what the future will bring.

Quotes & Awards

  • “One of the most ambitious YA novels I’ve ever read. Equal parts fantasy and science fiction…it’s got something to offer just about every reader. Those of us who’ve been waiting for the next Cloud Atlas have finally found it.”

    Tommy Wallach, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Facing the challenge of making readers care afresh for each new narrator and their increasingly desperate plights, Peevyhouse grips you every time.”

    Barnes & Noble, Teen Blog

  • “Peevyhouse does not spoon-feed her readers; instead she challenges them to bring their critical thinking skills to bear to adequately appreciate the work…This thoughtful, idea-driven read will be appreciated by those who like their dystopian fiction to be a bit more literary.”

    School Library Journal (starred review)

  • “[An] ambitious first novel…that keeps readers on their toes. Fans of adventurous, challenging fiction from the likes of A.S. King, David Mitchell, and Marcus Sedgwick should find this an exciting ride.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Each novella stands alone…but when pieced together, they present an overarching mystery that builds slowly and intensifies. There are larger issues here: contemplating purpose, technology in society, the wealth gap, addiction, and desperation.”


  • “Futuristic advances stand in sharp contrast to increasing economic disparity and environmental degradation, and the Other Place is not the enchanted sanctuary people hoped. Each story connects loosely with the one before…Peevyhouse’s ambitious debut offers readers plenty to ponder and will hold appeal for Marcus Sedgwick fans.”


  • “Richly intelligent…This is one of those rare gems that truly transcend the covers—readers will be left contemplating this world and many of the characters, long after they complete the book.”

    Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

  • “Five interconnected novellas feature five teens and five narrators, with each novella moving farther and farther into the future. Delivering both fantasy and science fiction, the cast of narrators engages listeners with the individual characters and the dilemmas they face…Each story is told with an urgency that pulls the listener more deeply into the time-twisting situations. An intriguing must-listen is enhanced by the unique voice that delivers each story.”


  • Midwinterblood meets Donnie Darko. Taut, tragic, and perfectly executed, Peevyhouse’s brilliant debut is the intertwined tale of worlds colliding in which truth becomes myth, fate becomes destiny, and tomorrow’s past must transcend yesterday’s most dreamed of future.”
