I hadn’t even realized there were trees in the Bronx. That shows how much I know. But the waste-land lake with its putrid odor seemed awfully real as the intrepid youths marched in search of their cave and water source.
Okay, here's where Julia gets to feel guilty about saying that she doesn't like this cover:( I just thought that they could have done more with it, but, they are a small publishing company so, even if the cover art is not my favorite, It still had artistic values. I did like that the back round looked sort of like an oil painting, but i feel as if the teens standing in the middle just ruined it's artistic value. Sorry guys, not my favorite cover I've seen.
This book simply wasn't my cup of tea... but, it...more
The characters are presented with little to no introduction. There are six main characters and no character development. It was difficult to keep track of who was who, and not a single one of them was relatable.
I didn’t buy into the whole picture of the dystopian future. Somehow society regressed se...more
So many sentences were written in such a way that seemed like a rough draft rather than final revised edition of a book ready for publication.
The way the leads spoke was not believeable as no teenager would say shirt and frick in place of curse words especially if they came from the bronx. The teenselves did not feel like friends and I could not bring my self to care about any of them.Some story bits were intresting but the awkward writing made the itnr...more

The idea was interesting (time travel novels are just interesting like that). But I couldn't finish it because the teens in this novel are so...unnatural. Teen's don't say "shirts" in place of swearing words. They say stuff like "frick" when forced to censor themselves.
There were also sentences that sounded awkward and words that were misspelled or such, making it seem like a rough draft of a fan fiction. The characters were hard to keep track of, and they weren't characters that could be relate...more

That's pretty much it for plot. I honestly can't even remember the names of one of the characters.
This is a forgettable book, thankfully. I really didn't like anything about the book. It felt like an amateurish effort. The apocalyptic future is never explained...more
This novel is geared for teens. I loved it. I hope like some that this gets turned into a movie! I love dystopian books. One of my favs is the Hunger Games and Eve. I do wish she would have taken more time to develop the characters and the romance that lies in this book.
The premise of the book is great... 6 teenagers are transported in time to the future. They are able to navigate the Bronx and Manhattan, using their knowledge of the past to help the people they find. Over the course of the book, some fall in love and maturity gives them a chance at a new future, while others have a more difficult time accepting that they'll never return to life as they know it. Race is a huge factor in the beginning, which diminishes abrupt...more
