Read in February, 2012

More of a snore than I thought it would be, which is disappointing. I don't think teen readers will be able to see themselves in these characters. I never really believed the connection between Holly and the main guy (who I have already forgotten the name of mere hours later). I think it's delicate when you're working with time travel to really back up your work and make sure it makes sense, and this one left me with some questions (view spoiler). I know we're into series, but COME ON. This book wasn't strong enough at all for me to continue the series, which is too bad because I really hoped it would be a strong read (the premise was so promising) and give outable to a boy (way to heavy on romance for that) and I was wrong on both counts. Also: if you're writing a book that is primarily action, please write action scenes better. I had to read parts like Holly on the swingset many times to get what she was really supposedly DOING, which should not be necessary.
