Joe & Anna Byrd and the Mysterious Coin
Although Joe and his sister Anna are orphans, they feel they “have it all” living with their loving grandfather in Sunrise Village. They are sure Grandpa Robbie has no worries, and they feel protected under his wing. However, this is not the case. Bosco, an international terrorist, is targeting Grandpa Robbie, while the siblings’ evil step-grandmother also increases her wicked assaults toward him. Everything changes rapidly and the situation takes a turn for the worse. Joe and Anna are sent to a cruel orphanage and feel betrayed by their grandfather.
The world sees the portals as an invasion. For Lysa, they’re an invitation. The portals appeared without warning. Every thirteen minutes they take a thousand humans, leaving exact duplicates in their place. Now, chaos reigns and no one is sure anyone is still the person they knew. Whoever is sending the portals has destroyed human society without firing a shot. Not everyone thinks the portals are a prelude to invasion. Lysa, a student far too bright for her own good, believes the portals might even be something wonderful. There must be a logical reason for the portals, and that means something alive and thinking on the other side of those shimmering holes in our reality. Her burning curiosity leads her to do the unthinkable; she leaps through a portal meant for another.
