What if you knew everything there was to know? What if the true
answer to any question was ready in your mind the moment you asked
for it? What if the answers always came every time, and were never
wrong? What questions would you ask? What would you do with the
answers? And who would you trust? Sara Starbright has exactly that
problem. Being eleven is hard enough, but not having anyone to
confide in is even harder. What's the point in getting to know
someone if you already know everything about them? Sure, Sara's
single mom tries her best to understand her daughter, but making
ends meet is about all she seems to have time for these days. And
Sara has bigger problems on the way too, problems that even she
can't see coming, for having all the answers is nice, but asking
the right questions is the real talent. Sara Starbright has the
most important gift the universe has ever given, and all manner of
creatures from all realms of the imagination want to take it for
themselves. What can one small girl do to protect herself from the
deadliest and most impressive force creation has ever amassed? Yet
in her darkest hour, Sara may have just met the one person in the
entire universe capable of being her friend. Stifled and stunted in
the deepest inner chambers of the Fishman's worldship prison
colony, a boy named Jonathan Wheeler lies in a state of suspended
animation. Through an unlikely twist of fate, he has found himself
in the body of an ever-growing and ever-changing monster, the
Chimera. With boundless energy and strength at his command, all he
needs is the right bit of knowledge to get himself out of his cell
and to freedom. As they escape from one world to the next, Sara and
Jonathan find that together they make a pretty good team. But when
you can't trust anyone, and when the universe turns out to be quite
a bit bigger than you could have ever imagined, who can you count
on to guide you towards somewhere you actually want to be? Meow.

The first few chapters were hard to get through, featuring long descriptive passages that didn’t flow easily. I gave up at one stage, putting the book aside, intending to have a break for a day or two. But I was ousted by the characters who had wormed their way into my mind and I found myself repeatedly thinking about them and where the story would take them. I am so glad I persevered; this was an enticing, imaginative, slightly weird story that transported me into another world (or should I say worlds).
