Abstract:

The series "The Side Ways" centers around Kendra White, whose parents belonged to a world that exists alongside our own. A world of seven separate Domains, peopled by "Reckoners," some thousands of years old, who gain Ways of power from specific, dedicated perspectives. Raised as an outsider - a "Mundane"--Kendra tries to make sense of a realm where every observation, decision and ability depends on one's viewpoints and perceptions. What is fundamental to a Reckoner of Sight may be unimportant or even dangerous to those from Earth, Blood, Release, Increase, Flux and Chaos. And though awakened to the Domains, Kendra is still outside them; she does not belong to any of the related Seven Houses. In her struggle to understand their history and tensions, she becomes an inadvertent piece in a power game some six-thousand years in the playing. A game whose last round ended with the Great Flood that nearly wiped the world clean of both Reckoners and Mundanes. In the series' first book, "Awake," 15-year-old Kendra White copes with both her workaholic single-mother and a cold, distant therapist. While working her summer job as an assistant gardener, a series of seeming coincidences crack the dark glass she always felt separated her from something ... more. Now Kendra is forced to navigate a beautiful and dangerous world of power beyond anything she's ever imagined. A world she must master before it discards her.
