Like the Science Fiction novel "Jumper" by Steven Gould, this is a Novellete about young Allie Dans who has a surprising ability. Whereas most science fiction stories of "teleportation" such as Heinlein's "Tunnel in the Sky" or the "stepping discs" in Larry Niven's stories focus on the moving of large objects long distances, this one explores the notion that even the ability to open a small portal between nearby locations would give the possessor of such an ability tremendous power. Of course others would like to have Allie's power and try to gain control of it first by capturing her father and then by kidnapping her family. This takes her away from her new career as a guitar playing "Rock Goddess". To their dismay, the villains have not considered that the power to make "ports" gives Allie the ability to protect herself and her family.
