While You Were Gone (Duplexity, Part 2)



A n artist without a cause meets a rebel without a clue.

Eevee is a promising young artist and the governor’s daughter in a city where censorship is everywhere and security is everything. When a fire devastates her exhibition—years in the making—her dreams of attending an elite art institute are dashed. She’s struggling to find inspiration when she meets Danny, a boy from a different world. Literally.

Raised in a foster home, Danny has led a life full of hurt and hardship until a glitch in the universe changes everything. Suddenly Danny is living in a home he’s never seen, with parents who miraculously survived the car crash that should have killed them. It’s like he’s a new Danny. But this alternate self has secrets—ties to an underground anarchist group that have already landed him in hot water. When he starts to develop feelings for Eevee, he’s even more disturbed to learn that he might have started the fire that ruined her work.

As Danny sifts through clues from his past and Eevee attempts to piece together her future, they uncover a secret that’s bigger than both of them. . . . And together, they must correct the breach between the worlds before it’s too late.

THE REVIEWS

“Danny and Eevee have off-the-charts chemistry. The nonromantic storylines…allow the characters to develop outside of their romance. The novel’s tense and exciting throughout…lots of fun on multiple levels.”

“Nichols is clever in reimagining characters in the alternate universe, keeping readers entertained throughout. A great modern-day science fiction novel for fans of time travel or the television show Fringe.”

“A fun great back-to-school series to introduce to students as they think about where else they could be and what their lives might be like elsewhere.”

“Fans of the first book will flock to this one, but the books can easily be read in either order.

“Both Eevees are smart, daring, and attracted to the Danny in their universe. While science is not as prominent in this novel, the sci-fi backstory adds a thought provoking undercurrent to a sweet love story that revolves around larger societal issues.”
