What if every time you made a choice that had a significant consequence, a new, alternate reality was created―the life that would’ve been? What if those new Realities were in danger? What if it were up to you to save all the realities―and in turn, the entire universe?
Tick is a normal 13-year-old boy until a strange letter changes his life. The first of a series of cryptic messages, the letter explains that his world is in danger. To save his reality, Tick must solve a series of riddles. Luckily, he is not alone and soon makes two friends from other parts of the world, who have been receiving the same clues. Together they race against time to protect their world, realising along the way that theirs is not the only reality at stake.
As events progress, it becomes apparent that Tick has some very unique powers that he must learn to master in order to keep protecting the 13 main realities from some terrifying dangers. As the characters realise that all realities are threatening to split at the seams, it seems that Tick is the key to restoring order and saving everyone’s lives.
