(Available as part of Kindle Unlimited if you’re a subscriber, but also available in the usual other formats as well)I love time travel stories and this one was fun with the layers and ripples. I’m looking forward to reading the next one in the series when it comes out in October.
Things get a little bit confusing if you try to read it when you’re half asleep, but I’d say that’s true of any time travel story. The story moves around quite a bit, from place to place and from time to time. It can be a lot to keep track of, but it’s worth the brain power required to do so, there’s some good stuff and some subtle little links between the timelines.
There are lots of little loops in this story, along with things to make you think about how life could be different if just one tiny thing changed in the scope of a lifetime.

When Kate Pierce-Keller’s grandmother gives her a strange blue medallion and speaks of time travel, sixteen-year-old Kate assumes the old woman is delusional. But it all becomes horrifyingly real when a murder in the past destroys the foundation of Kate’s present-day life. Suddenly, that medallion is the only thing protecting Kate from blinking out of existence.
Kate learns that the 1893 killing is part of something much more sinister, and her genetic ability to time travel makes Kate the only one who can fix the future. Risking everything, she travels back in time to the Chicago World’s Fair to try to prevent the murder and the chain of events that follows.
Changing the timeline comes with a personal cost—if Kate succeeds, the boy she loves will have no memory of her existence. And regardless of her motives, does Kate have the right to manipulate the fate of the entire world?
