I’m thrilled with this review from Booklist:
“The story will hold readers with its twists and turns, present and future; its love, sadness, and anger; and especially, its surprising secrets.”
TIME BETWEEN US
Author: Stone, Tamara Ireland
Mystery and time travel blend with romance in this exciting debut novel. In suburban Chicago in 1995, 16-year-old Anna feels stuck at home, so she is excited to meet cute new student Bennett while running track. But what is he hiding? Is he a stalker? It turns out that he is from a time 17 years in the future, and he tells her about 2012 (including the wonder of cell phones). Bennett has the ability to disappear and reappear, and he can make others do the same. Even more astonishing is his power to “do over” anything that happens, and when Anna’s best friend, Emma, is severely injured in a car accident, Anna makes Bennett go back and erase the tragedy. But then Emma gets close with gorgeous Justin, whom Anna has always wanted to date. Can she erase that, too? Told in Anna’s authentic, first-person, present-tense voice, the story will hold readers with its twists and turns, present and future; its love, sadness, and anger; and especially, its surprising secrets. — Hazel Rochman
