Scott's teacher is a demon. She wasn't always like this. Mid-way through the class, between Scott looking from the board to his paper and back again, she transformed into a hell-creature bent on killing Scott. Meanwhile Davey watches the janitor turn into a sloth who wears a cowboy hat and chaps that read, "Slow Ride."Amazon •
Things aren't going well. Something's gone wrong. Things that shouldn't be in this universe are sliding in and taking root here. People who should be here are gone, transformed into something else. Some are dying. Some are on fire. Some can unhinge their jaws and absorb their crushes via their tooth-lined throats.
Scott and Davey are the only ones who are aware of this, who can see it happening. They're the only ones who can do anything about this, apparently. But they're only armed with school supplies and a deep-seated hatred of one another.

“I saw a creature that looked like Vincent Price’s and H.P. Lovecraft’s nightmares had a baby, then that baby was possessed by the devil, then had its soul sucked out by a demented from Harry Potter, then- sorry. Sometimes I get lost in metaphor. You get the point.”
Scott. What can be said about Scott? Well… he’s a dork. No, not a YA novel dork-that-is-really-hot-but-doesn’t-know-it-yet. He’s a full blooded dork that runs from danger screaming and rambles on in science and science fiction lingo. I love him!
Davey is a cheerleader captain. I know, right? Stick the cheerleader with the dork, typical YA story. But don’t worry, this is defiantly not a typical YA outcome. She’s hard for anyone to get along with and most of the time she finds herself stuck in peer mediation for throwing slurs at other students.
If you’ve read my reviews before, you know I adore physics. The plot of the story is based on the multiverse theory (duh) and the multiverses are collapsing in on each other. Scott and Davey are able to see these other universes as they collide into their own universe. That could be a universe of giant spiders, killer robots, MAN-eaters, or people who spontaneously combust then walk back into class.
It really has a nice transition between Davey and Scott thinking they are crazy seeing things that no one else can see and finally discovering that something is happening. It’s also great to see the two contrasting characters’ differing reactions to the same situations. I’m defiantly rooting for a sequel to this one.
I would recommend this book for older teens and up, as it does have numerous sexual moments (not graphic) and tons of language.
