Nine-year-old Bailey is having a really fun summer until her older sibling Whisper disappears. Camp counselors and parents are thrown into confusion but Bailey knows where Whisper went. It all has to do with a top-secret time travel mission. Does she know enough about time-travel to find them?

The funny and heartwarming story of Whisper’s Gone touches on family dynamics, divorce, growing up transgender, sibling loyalty, and, of course, time-travel.
