WARNING: I feel like this synopsis is a little spoilery, but it is what goodreads offers.
At a school where Quantum Paradox 101 is a required course and history field trips are literal, sixteen year-old time traveler Bree Bennis excels…at screwing up.
After Bree botches a solo midterm to the 21st century by accidentally taking a boy hostage (a teensy snafu), she stands to lose her scholarship. But when Bree sneaks back to talk the kid into keeping his yap shut, she doesn’t go back far enough. The boy, Finn, now three years older and hot as a solar flare, is convinced he’s in love with Bree, or rather, a future version of her that doesn’t think he’s a complete pain in the arse. To make matters worse, she inadvertently transports him back to the 23rd century with her.
Once home, Bree discovers that a recent rash of accidents at her school are anything but accidental. Someone is attacking time travelers. As Bree and her temporal tagalong uncover seemingly unconnected clues—a broken bracelet, a missing data file, the art heist of the millennium—that lead to the person responsible, she alone has the knowledge to piece the puzzle together. Knowledge only one other person has. Her future self.
But when those closest to her become the next victims, Bree realizes the attacker is willing to do anything to stop her. In the past, present, or future.
Information from Goodreads.com
The beginning was a little forgettable. Yada yada, girl can time travel, yada yada, gangly kid... but then about a quarter of a way through the story maybe even a little less, it is like BAM! Didn't see that coming. And really, that happens several times throughout the book. Every time you think you figured something out, BAM you're wrong again, like REALLY wrong. It was such a fantastic plot and I really can't wait to read more from this world.
Also the characters were amazing. Bree is hilarious and witty and smart. Not to mention tough, I love a female protagonist that doesn't take crap and can take care of herself. And the other characters all add so much to the story. I think what I loved most about this book, was the romance that rocked all other types of romance. It had everything I usually love but has been overused and it shook it up and made it all new.
I am definitely one who likes funner, less dark books (but still complicated) that HAVE to contain some sort of romance. So if you're one of those readers lately too, you will adore this book as much as I did. But, if you're not, I still think this is something you're going to want to look into.
