I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
This is the perfect example of a three star book if I ever read one.
Almost all the rules of time travel were broken so if you are looking for a quality Sci-Fi novel, this one isn’t it. However, I’m not too picky about things like that when I am reading a book that is focused on romance. Sure I found myself scoffing at some things that took place. Prenna is a member of a colony from the future that went pack in time to change the course of history. They want to stop this deadly plague that wiped out most of the world.
I never really understood what their plan was, believe me, I tried. And when I did find out what was going on, I was just left with more questions.
The book was also too preachy for my personal taste. The science was neglected so that the author could spend time on a message and the relationship between Ethan and Prenna. The message was a good one that involved global warming and big business, but I don’t read YA fiction to be preached to.
The relationship between Ethan and Prenna was what I liked most about the story, but it didn’t go anywhere. It wasn’t really insta love because they had been friends for two years before they got together. I found it believable that a couple of teenagers who knew each other well could go from friends to more than friends overnight. They always liked each other so of course they got serious quickly. They were cute, and I liked Ethan a lot, but I don’t have much to say about them.
I’m having a difficult time writing this review so I am going to put myself out of my misery now and wrap things up.
I didn’t hate the book, but I am indifferent so I’m not sure who I would recommend it to. Who knows? You may like it. There was nothing to hate. So read it or don’t read it, I can’t seem to muster enough enthusiasm to care.
Because of language I would recommend this book for ages 14 and up. There are no sex scenes, but sex is discussed.
