-- My Thoughts --
Casey is far from a normal girl. yes, she has normal girl issues: uncontrollable hair and an uncontrollable crush on Nate. But she also has uncontrollable trips back to the 19th century. And things get worse, when she accidentally takes back Nate with her on a trip to the past. From worse to worst, Casey has to bear with them all...
I love some light read in the summer. On one side, this was a typical high-school romance. All the high school drama was portrayed perfectly and the teenage insecurities were also evident and felt real. But on the other side, the time travel element is not unique in YA, but Elle Strauss did a unique approach to the genre. The time travel was much more interesting that Casey's normal high school life, so I always wished she would go back to the past when she was actually in the present.
The plot was fast-moving. And the romance was cute, but it felt real. Casey developed a lot throughout the book, so the character development gets an A+. Although this book was not AMAZING, it was great, nonetheless. And I cannot wait to read the second book in the series, and get more time travel drama!
