Sidney's book focuses on five characters traveling across the country randomly, hoping to avoid an unseen psychic enemy. Is there REALLY an enemy? Is it all in their heads? Are they delusional? Sidney plays with the reader's head, and our opinions change as we read. In the end, we find we were wrong all along reality is not what it seems! The "enemy" may have been created from their imaginations but what about their friends? A very DIFFERENT kind of book.

This book is so weird! I was uncertain of what was really going on almost to the end of the book. Even when I knew what was going on I wasn't sure how the story would end. This is a must read for anyone who loves a multi-genre book full of mystery, adventure, intrigue, science and fantasy.
