Corey is completely in love with Kate, never mind that he isn't even eighteen yet. He has been in love with her for a thousand years, or at least in terms of the quantum physics that allow the jumps they do regularly happen. Kate loves Corey and she feels safe and worthy with Corey; the only problem is she is drawn to Trip too. Trip, of course, as much as he considers Corey a friend, is competitive and wants to win the girl, even if it means breaking the heart of the girl who loves him. Welcome to Heartwork Village, a camp for troubled youths that uses quantum physics to allow the campers to jump into alternative realities to change choices and see what else could have occurred. The only problem is someone is sabotaging the jumps! Corey, Trip and Kate make up three members of the team called The Keepers, whose only job is to find out who is sabotaging the jumps. Author LaDonna Cole creates a world so close to reality that you believe in it and want to visit there yourself.

The Keepers creates a believable existence of life with this complex quantum theory that allows controlled jumps into time and space. They are supposed to address issues in your life and help you deal with them, which is the purpose of Heartwork Village, and why troubled teens get sent there. LaDonna Cole gives us a heartwarming story of first love, lost souls, and coming of age. They are not your normal angst-filled rebellious teenagers, but for some reason these intelligent kids need a hand up in the world. This is an excellent book for those preteens and teen readers. It deals with topics and pressures that every child today is going to face.
