I LOVED this book when I was younger. I always remembered the name then for some reason forgot it for a few years. Just remembered again and I'm glad I did. I can't believe I read it and I had no idea it was a series. Definitely broke one of my reading rules but of course I didn't know it back then lol.

Great book. It's probably been 10 years since I read it. I'm going to buy as soon as possible so I can read again and give a better review :)

Recommends it for: people who have read time windows
This was a good books but I like Time Windows better. (this is the 2nd to Time Windows.)

This book was kinda boring to begin with but it got a little better. This was the companion to Time Windows so of course I had to read it. I like who Miranda and her "boyfriends" relation ship developed more. All in all it was a good book and it is worth the read.

My mom bought this book for me through one of the school scholastic book orders in elementary school. I have read it an re-read it to the point where the binding is cracked and faded from so many readings. More than ten years later I still re-read it every year or so. An absolutely sensational book that you never get tired of!

Shelves: horror
not as fun as the 2nd book, but much better that the 1st.
pretty interesting story and unpredictable ending, at least for me..
but I think it's more like a drama story rather than a mystery.. well, just my 2 cent tho..

This is a pretty good ghost story, but I found it hard to believe that Mandy's parents didn't listen to her more carefully after the whole Time Windows story. I did like seeing the character development though.

as a youngster, i loved "time windows" but didn't realize it had a sequel until i was 22. and i think 22 was just too late to discover this one.
