Synopsis: What would you change?
Imprisoned in the heart of a secret military base, Em has nothing except the voice of the boy in the cell next door and the list of instructions she finds taped inside the drain.
Only Em can complete the final instruction. She’s tried everything to prevent the creation of a time machine that will tear the world apart. She holds the proof: a list she has never seen before, written in her own hand. Each failed attempt in the past has led her to the same terrible present—imprisoned and tortured by a sadistic man called the doctor while war rages outside.
Marina has loved her best friend, James, since they were children. A gorgeous, introverted science prodigy from one of America’s most famous families, James finally seems to be seeing Marina in a new way, too. But on one disastrous night, James’s life crumbles, and with it, Marina’s hopes for their future. Marina will protect James, no matter what. Even if it means opening her eyes to a truth so terrible that she may not survive it… at least, not as the girl she once was. Em and Marina are in a race against time that only one of them can win.
Review: I have never gotten the chance to read a novel about time travel before, which is sad because I love the thought of time travel. I believe this a would be a hard concept to write about, and make it good. This is a rare book.
The plot was great and the writing was amazing! It is intriguing and engrossing, it pulls you right in. It leaves you on the edge of your seat, wondering what will happen next, turning page after page. It is full of suspense and you will not be able to put it down. It is so thrilling I devoured it in one sitting.
I really loved the romance within this. It would be hard to balance out the plot along with the romance, and still make it enjoyable, and the author did an amazing job with this.
I give it 5/5 stars and would highly recommend it for fans of science fiction and dystopia.
