“Fans of A Wrinkle in Time can’t missDimension Drift!” – Christina Trevaskis, The Book Matchmaker
Truth time. I go to a Learning Squirrel High School. Don’t judge.
On second thought, judge away. Learning Squirrel is one step above attending class in a junkyard. But what do you expect? Everything’s made out of garbage these days. At least, I have my freelance work to keep Mom and me housed, clothed, and fed. How? I’m your regular high school science geek for hire, except my work manipulates space-time. The good news is that these gigs pay really well; the bad news is that the government likes to kill people like me. Whatever. I’m not worried; hiding from their detection systems is easy for me.
Then I screw up one of my illegal projects. Badly.
In fact, things go so sideways that my house slips into two-dimensional space-time. The shift only lasts for a few seconds, but that’s long enough to set off a dozen government alarms. If those goons track me down, Mom and I are as good as dead. Long story short, I need to pay someone off, hide the evidence, and keep us safe.
Unfortunately, that means asking the Scythe for help. He runs the local underground crime scene and has absolutely no conscience…Or at least, I’m pretty sure he doesn’t. It’s hard to think straight when a guy’s that hot in an ‘evil Mafioso kingpin’ kind of way. Most importantly, the Scythe is a crime lord who can conceal my slip-up with a few clicks on his minion’s computer keyboards. But the man has his price. In this case, the Scythe wants me to finish a certain dimensional prototype for him in twenty-four hours. I can do it, but it might mean Learning Squirrel High gets blown up in the process. Oh yes, and there’s also my new hot classmate who may or may not be an alien…and he says he’ll do anything to help me.
This job won’t be easy, but I’ve gotten out of worse scrapes. Maybe.

"Top 10 On Your Bucket List"
By Christina Bauer
As part of the launch tour for my new book, SCYTHE, the lovely folks at Stormy Vixen's Book Reviews have asked me to list the top 10 items on my bucket list. So without further ado, here goes!
10. See the Pyramids of Egypt. Since pyramids are cool.
9. Write 100 books. Just because I can. Maybe.
8. Eat my weight in pizza (I may have already reached this one)
7. Have a sandwich named after me (more food stuff, yeah!)
6. Never watch the movie Bucket List
5. Bring Huzzah back as a catch phrase
4. Get free spa treatments for life
3. Never go on a cruise (I watched too much Love Boat as a kid, which ruined this for me. Remember the episode with Ernest Borgnine? Yeah, that sucked.)
2. Tell those meddling kids to get off my lawn
1. Grow gray hair down to my waist, wear long white dresses, and have children call me Mrs B (that’s really three things but I got inspired)
Thanks for having me stop by! I hope to see you on a future tour!
Thanks for joining me here today, Christina! I really enjoyed your bucket list as dare I say...that I wish my bucket list was half as cool as yours! See you again, soon!
