Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—A speculative fiction series about a teen of Panamanian descent who time travels to Civil War—era Brooklyn with her love interest Judah. In the sequel, The Door at the Crossroads, the young people are separated and Judah struggles to stay alive during the Civil War while Genna travels to New York City during September 11. Elliott's lyrical writing, thorough research, and excellent pacing make these books a perfect fit for future fans of Octavia Butler and those who enjoyed A Wrinkle in Time. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
