A really fun story with in-depth discussion on the possibilities and repercussions of time travel. I was no expecting a sci-fi element when I began reading, but it definitely had it's place. There is also a great deal of discussion of A Wrinkle in Time, which I haven't read, and I felt I missed out a bit from that.

Still, I think this is a juvenile book for adults. The main thing pushing it there is the time period. There is a lot of the story that revolves around the show $10,000 Pyramid from the 70s. Some of the flashback from the present letter-writing to the time of the incidents she is writing about became confusing at times.

A good story, but I don't think I can hand it to anyone.
