Grade: 3 1/2 stars
Story summary: Jackson can travel through time! 'Nough said.
Ok, I suppose that isn't enough said. Jackson can travel very short distances into the past, until one day he gets stuck in 2007 and can't get back to his normal time of 2009. Which is unfortunate because his girlfriend was just shot by mysterious men, and he wants to get back and make sure she doesn't die and all that.

Thoughts: Basically all the stars come from the time travel. I love time travel. A lot. The time travel in this book is different than any I've seen before as well, so that was exciting.

The first half of the book was especially exciting in this area; you have no real clue what's going on, and all sorts of strange things are happening

The Romance, on the other hand, was nothing spectacular. Or at least, for my tastes. Though I was thankful at least that it wasn't about Jackson falling in love with a girl; Holly was his girlfriend from the beginning and stayed that way. Also, it seemed like it was an actual serious love, serious enough for him to [spoilers, visit to decode] nfx ure gb zneel uvz, naq gb znxr gung ubeevoyr fnpevsvpr ng gur raq.
