When seventeen-year-old Tati sends a saliva sample to a DNA ancestry testing site, her results come back inconclusive. What’s wrong with her DNA? And does it have to do with her unexplained seizures and the beckoning tunnel she sees during them? What Tati discovers is more than she could have ever imagined possible. Parallel universes exist and her abnormal DNA compels and condemns Tati and her other selves—shy Ana, privileged Tatyana, and on-the-run Tanya—to a lifetime of ricocheting between their parallel lives in the multiverse. With knowledge of their existence a deadly threat in every universe, the only chance all four have to survive is to work together to take down the scientist responsible: their father.

This delightful tour through sixteen of the world’s most vibrant streets will awaken young readers to the joys of travel. What makes a street interesting? Is it the architecture, the landscape, the people, the businesses, or the history? In this collection of sixteen charmingly detailed illustrations, kids can discover the answer for themselves. Spanning nearly every continent to explore a fantastic variety of cities, sixteen doublepage spreads come alive with color and activity. In San Francisco, people and vehicles make their way up and down Lombard Street’s twists and turns. On Hotagayo Street in the quiet, wintry Japanese town of Shirakawa-gō, snow slides off the deeply pitched roofs, while in Bamako, Mali, the massive and crowded marketplace shimmers with heat. Kids will delight in the quirky architecture of Prinsengracht Street in Amsterdam and try to identify all the neon lights of Broadway. Whether looking down the dizzying slope that is the Rua da Bica in Lisbon or zooming on a motorbike through Hanoi, Agusti Sousa’s irresistible illustrations capture each location’s unique vibe. Mia Cassany’s texts will spark discussion about what makes a place special, while encouraging readers to wonder what’s happening on the streets of their own hometowns.
