Reminiscent of A Wrinkle in Time, with just a dash of Doctor Who, the Balky Point Adventures are for readers of all ages who love a good romp through the imaginative marvels of the universes, delivered with heart and wonder. The Planet of the Memory Thieves Book 3 of the Balky Point Adventures: Return to the mysterious Balky Point Lighthouse and rediscover the wonders of the universes in this third installment of the Balky Point Adventures. Teens Emma and Charlie, and their counterpoints from a parallel Earth, Ree and Chuck, have traveled through space to a distant planet, where Charlie and Chuck want to start a business as intergalactic travel guides. What at first seems like an innocent, bucolic planet takes a frightening turn when suddenly the visitors can't remember who they are or how they got there. Meanwhile, Ree reveals to Emma that she has some superpowers of her own; Charlie discovers that everyone has strengths, and everyone can make a difference; and all the teens learn that it is our choices that create our futures.
