This is another book from off my classroom library shelf. I chose it because we'd read a fascinating short story by the author in our reading anthology, and I was hoping for an equally interesting read. Marco's younger sister Lilly claims she can see a strange tunnel in the basement of their home. Marco and she are very close, so he decides to investigate. He discovers a passage into another world, where a Singularity appears to have control. The inhabitants of this mysterious world need a human "medium" to save their world, so Marco volunteers for the task. The task is much more difficult than either he or his sister imagine, and it takes both of them to figure out how to accomplish it. But the cost is high. I really didn't care much for the book. It's dark, it's scary, and I thought it was super depressing. I'm not surprised that it hasn't been checked out much!
