Series: The Corridor Duology
Author: A. N. Willis
Publisher: Alloy Entertainment
Publication Date: 06/23/2015
Synopsis from Goodreads: Infinite worlds. Endless possibilities . . .
Stel Alaster has never known life without the Corridor. It appeared suddenly seventeen years ago, the only portal to a parallel version of our world—Second Earth. Everyone on First Earth fears Mods, the genetically modified Second Earthers who built the Corridor. They are too smart, too strong, and have powers that can’t be controlled. Any Mod found on First Earth is branded, then detained in the Corridor’s research labs.
Only Stel has a dangerous secret. She has a power, too: She can open a portal to Second Earth . . . and several other parallel universes she’s discovered. If anyone ever finds out, she’ll be imprisoned, no better than a Mod or common lab rat.
But when the Corridor starts to fail, emitting erratic bursts of energy that could destroy First Earth, Stel must risk everything to save the people and world she loves. With the help of an escaped Mod and an infuriatingly arrogant boy from a third universe, Stel sets out to unravel the mysteries of the Corridor and stabilize it before it’s too late. The fate of every world lies in the balance. . . .

Without a doubt, the best YA Sci-Fi book I’ve read in a long time! The Corridor is amazing – fast paced, full of action, and fresh. The book is set in the not-too-distant future – 2032. It deals with travel, but not time travel. Not space travel either. Cross-dimensional travel. That’s right – cross-dimensional.
What if there were 12 versions of Earth? Each in it’s own little dimension. What if one of those Earths figured out how to travel to another? And what if something went wrong and one of those Earths was seriously screwed up? That’s what The Corridor is all about. What happens when portals to other versions of our world are opened and what happens when someone does something so dangerous, they have to be stopped.
I love Stel’s character. She’s strong and I relate to her a lot. We’re a lot alike – of course I don’t have cool abilities like she does – but otherwise we’re a lot alike. The other characters are perfect matches for her. From the love interest to the best friend who isn’t her best friend anymore, the other characters are perfect for her.
This is a great, quick read. I started the book in the morning before class and finished it mid-evening. If you’re looking for an awesome, quick read, check out The Corridor.
