In a twist of fate, a young Latino girl acquires a strange gift and can control time only for herself.
Penny reminds us: “Time is strange, and I would have thought it had many paths, but for some reason, you can’t go back. My path leads to ruin.” Penny’s only hope, she thought, was to steal a “time machine” and go to an unknown future, where she finds things become more terrible than she ever thought possible.
Penny then takes the time to tell us her story. With the nature of what time is, the trip can lead only one way. There is no path back home.
