Sixteen-year-old Gwyneth has always been assured of a normal life, while her cousin has been thoroughly prepared for time-travel (everyone expects she has the gene). So Gwen is bewildered when she is catapulted back in time for the first time without any preparation. Thrust into a perilous situation, she must unravel the mysteries of a secret society and her own birth, deal with her abrupt trips back in time, and her attraction to the gorgeous-but-obnoxious Gideon.
Though I love young adult novels, this one was a bit too clichéd. I’ve heard it all before: the afflicted girl, the dangerous circumstances, the hot guy. The plot was gripping, yet predictable. The characters weren’t too well developed, but they were definitely relatable. Language isn’t very natural either. It’s a beach read, something you forget after you close the book. Don’t get me wrong, I liked it enough to plan to read the sequel when it comes out. It just won’t go in my list of favorites.
