Relativity by Cristin Bishara
If Ruby Wright could have her way, her dad would never have met and married her stepmother Willow, her best friend George would be more than a friend, and her mom would still be alive. Ruby knows wishes can’t come true; some things just can’t be undone. Then she discovers a tree in the middle of an Ohio cornfield with a wormhole to nine alternative realities. Suddenly, Ruby can access completely different realities, each containing variations of her life—if things had gone differently at key moments. The windshield wiper missing her mother’s throat…her big brother surviving his ill-fated birth…her father never having met Willow. Her ideal world—one with everything and everyone she wants most—could be within reach. But is there such a thing as a perfect world? What is Ruby willing to give up to find out?
Ruby is a sad girl, devastated that she and her father have to move to Ohio. But the worst part is living with her new stepsister, a psychotic, vindictive girl. Ruby seeks out a strange tree that leads her to alternate worlds, some just a little different than her own. Some are vastly different.
Relativity is an emotional journey through parallel worlds. This past-paced adventure leads to unpredictable worlds where Ruby searches for a perfect place to stay. Events build to an exciting and dramatic conclusion. It’s a captivating and engaging story from beginning to end.
