Summary
"'Time travel' -- and its hazards--are made literal in this astonishing new novel in which a recklessly idealistic girl dares to test the perimeters of her tightly controlled (future) world and is punished by being sent back in time to a region of North America -- 'Wainscotia, Wisconsin' -- that existed eighty years before. Cast adrift in time in this idyllic Midwestern town she is set upon a course of 'rehabilitation' -- but cannot resist falling in love with a fellow exile and questioning the constrains of the Wainscotia world with results that are both devastating and liberating."--Back cover
Summary
The National Book Award-winning author of We Were the Mulvaneys presents the story of a recklessly idealistic girl who tests the limits of her oppressively controlled, dystopian world only to fall fatefully in love
