What if finding her means losing himself?
Seventeen-year-old Bo has always had delusions that he can travel through time. When he was ten, Bo claimed to have witnessed the Titanic hit an iceberg, and at fifteen, he found himself on a Civil War battlefield, horrified by the bodies surrounding him. So when his concerned parents send him to a school for troubled youth, Bo assumes he knows the truth: that he's actually attending Berkshire Academy, a school for kids who, like Bo, have "superpowers."
At Berkshire, Bo falls in love with Sofia, a quiet girl with a tragic past and the superpower of invisibility. Sofia helps Bo open up in a way he never has before. In turn, Bo provides comfort to Sofia, who lost her mother and two sisters at a very young age.
But even the strength of their love isn't enough to help Sofia escape her deep depression. After she commits suicide, Bo is convinced that she's not actually dead. He believes that she's stuck somewhere in time-that he somehow left her in the past, and now it's his job to save her.

"Narrator P.J. Ochlan impressively portrays the complex disposition of teenager Bo, who suffers from a mental illness that causes him to believe he can travel through time. Ochlan's thunderous voice passionately depicts the anger and frustration that Bo feels as he tries to convince his family and classmates of his delusional belief that his girlfriend, Sofia, is not dead, but just lost in time. Narrator Sarah Naughton creates a genuine voice for Bo's concerned sister, Phoebe, who is trying to understand and support her brother, but also to lead her own life without feeling constant guilt. Listeners will be rapt at this story of a family struggling with the challenges of mental illness, as delivered through the strong and emotional narration of Ochlan and Naughton.
