Lightning storms go on and on.
Frost on the window in summer.
A house across the street that no one else in town can seem to remember…
Big change, moving from Chicago after Mom’s death to the small Arizona town where Dad grew up.
So many weird things are happening here – of course the twins and their new friends are going to investigate!
Can you escape sorrow by moving to a new place?

My book talk: When Malcolm sees someone in an abandoned house which has no doors, the fifteen-year-old and his twin Valentine uncover a dangerous force that imperils their small town – lightning can strike much more than twice in the same place!
New to grandmother’s old house, new to Dad’s old high school, the twins start making friends as Malcolm dives into history and Valentine impresses her science teacher.
But Patrick disappears right after Fred’s back-to-school party, so school newspaper editor Winter gets everyone investigating, as the lightning storms get more and more intense.
Is the lightning striking the abandoned house or coming from it?
Why must the strange watch found there stay with Malcolm constantly?
Who’s the shadowed man lurking around town now?
The teens and longtime town residents must hurry to find out what’s going on in that house and with the watch that won’t keep normal time before it’s too late! (first in Time Shift Trilogy).
