It’s an average day in an average suburb.
In an alternate universe.

Claude thinks his biggest problem is trying to impress his new boyfriend when a much bigger problem comes along: his father vanishes, leaving clues that he invented a time machine. In search of answers, Claude and his friend Carolien must stay a step ahead of a powerful corporation and confront one of the darkest episodes in history. But they are running out of time.

The Alternate Universe and The Escape are high-stakes adventure about two friends who risk everything to save their families … and the world.

Rob Wolf’s books are available on Amazon, iTunes, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, or Smashwords. They are also available on Amazon in France, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, India and other countries around the world.

“Rob Wolf gives us an alternate universe where a lot is different but some things remain the same: guys still get crushes and fall in love … and friends are willing to go to the end of time for one another. Fast-paced and incredibly smart, you will never look at life in quite the same way again.”


“Wolf brings us into the lives of his characters with genuine empathy andattention to the details that preoccupy teens in any universe.”
