Lost in time
January 31st 2014
Perfect world. Lies. Blue eyes.
When a mysterious guy from the forbidden zone sneaks an illegal slip of paper to a beautiful young girl from Brighton, she must decide if she should turn him in or follow what the note says.
Eighteen-year-old Abigail has no trouble following Brighton’s rules. For one, she’s OCD about checking her Date of Death clock latched to her wrist, making sure her decisions never shorten her timeline, and two, she enjoys the peace Brighton has to offer. In no way would she bring on another attack that destroyed earth’s inhabitants. But when her best friend returns from her Advice Meeting--a glimpse into the future--shocked and won’t tell Abby what’s happened, Abby is worried what awaits her glimpse. The stranger with blue eyes knows something, but does Abby dare enter the forbidden zone to get answers? Or is she doomed to live the life set in her glimpse?
I underestimated this book. I thought:
But no. No no. No. This book was so much more. It dealt with time travel and future-selves and much more. I haven’t read any books dealing with time so this was so new and intriguing for me.
Brenda Pandos is a brilliant author and I love her writing style and technique.
It had it’s share of swoon-worthy boys and awesome other characters. I loved Landon as a character and thought he was really unique.
I thought the plot was awesome! I did not expect 95% of what happens in this book. I loved the direction this book was taking from the start.
But, of course, no book is perfect. This book did have a few patches where I thought not much was happening or too much was happening and it was hard to take in.
Overall, I recommend this book to all YA readers and think they will enjoy this read immensely.
