“Freesia lives on a seemingly magical island where every whim is answered in this nifty sci-fi comedy . . . Freesia’s plenty spunky, and so is this hilarious book.” –Kirkus Reviews
Freesia Summers lives on the island of Agalinas, a hidden Pacific paradise somewhere off the coast of California. Northern California or Southern? Freesia doesn’t know. Or care. She’d much rather spend her time thinking about things that matter, like glittery eye makeup and lovely boys. Freesia has everything a girl could want: an enormous closet, her own ocean-view balcony, a pink itty car, singing peacocks, and a magical bubble that lets her talk to her besties and keep track of her de-vicious clothes.
If Freesia’s life seems too good to be true, well, there’s a reason for that. She does her best to ignore the signs that something in her world has gone terribly wrong: the electrical outages, the time slips, the sudden departures that border on disappearances. But when a blackout lands her in an unbeautiful place — and in an equally unbeautiful but oddly familiar body — reality hits her head-on.
As far as Freesia is concerned, reality is overrated.

“Snow ‘s novel is a page-turning blend of romance, mystery, and the supernatural, with the backdrop of the mortgage crisis . . . providing a sense of freshness and currency.” —School Library Journal
