A class trip to the Rocky Mountains. A car crash. Three teenagers alone. A terrible storm. A cave. Light ahead. Falling....

Kaida wakes up. It's now 10 days before the class trip to the Rocky Mountains...

Kaida, Zeke and Joy, are three random teenagers who go to the same school but don't hang in the same crowd. They were together in the van, on the way to New Mexico on a class trip. When something tragic happens along the way, only it doesn't stop at an accident.

Prism is a suspenseful story about an altered universe that is just like the world they live in. Everyone they know is in this world, same school, same town. The only difference is, no one has ever heard of doctor's, hospitals or even medicine. They have a natural order of things, so if someone is sick, they get sicker. If someone gets hit by a car, they die.
Eventually Kaida, Zeke and Joy realize that this wasn't a dream and they are trapped in a different life.
They have to find a way to get back to there own time and try to help the world that they are leaving behind.

This book was very suspenseful, unique and intriguing. The writing draws you in and the characters are likable.
This story is a-slap-in-the-face-reality-check read, that will makes you think and be grateful for the compassionate world that we live in.

With a Twilight Zone effect, Prism wasn't exactly griping, but had a edge of anticipation!

A quick and easy read.
