As the site of a former military base, there have always been rumors that East Township High School was the site of experiments with space and time. For years, students have whispered in the hallways of a doorway created within the school, one that can access multiple timelines and realities, a place known as the Down World.
As the new kid in school and still reeling from the unexplained death of her brother Robbie, Marina O'Connell is only interested in one thing: leaving the past behind. But a chance encounter with handsome Brady Picelli changes everything. He will lead Marina to a startling discovery. The Down World is real and the past, present, and future are falling out of balance.
Brady is determined to help Marina discover what really happened to her brother. However, what is taken from one world, must be repaid by another. And Marina is about to discover that even a realm of infinite possibilities has rules that must be obeyed.

Review by LAWonder10:
Down World is a mesmerizing, suspenseful, and innovative new trilogy for Young Adults, yet Adults will surely love it, too!
In her debut novel, Rebecca Phelps has proven herself an accomplished writer, as effective as most "seasoned" writers. Down World is a fascinating story about a very mysterious and restrictive place, discovered by teens who reside in an old military town. The military base has been made in to a High School with a very unusual floor plan. Below it exists a very peculiar, addictive place. It seems fun and harmless at first, but that is just a pretense of reality. Nobody seems to understand the hidden danger.
The characters are endearing and well-portrayed. The scenes allows the reader to feel a part of the adventures. The intrigue builds and continues to become more intense as the tale comes to a compelling end. The ending is complete, yet leaves the reader wanting more. The Title is perfect but the Cover image is not very eye-catching.
This would make a wonderful movie series.
I offer a Five Stars rating
*I as gifted this book with no pressure, whatsoever, to post a positive review. This is my honest review.
