Gwyneth Shepherd has enough on her plate, what with her ability to talk to ghosts, and the
constant struggle with ugly school uniforms. She definitely could do without unexpected bouts of
time travel. Unfortunately for Gwyneth, her family’s preparations for Gwen’s cousin Charlotte to
inherit a time travel gene were incorrect. Now, Gwyneth must fight to figure out the secrets of
the secret society controlling the time troubles and somehow survive the company of her
deliciously handsome (but also quite bothersome) time travel companion, Gideon. Will Gwen

Rating: 4 My rating for this book is a 4 because the book is bland in my opinion and does not have intensive detail. This book failed to get my interest for the most part and I think that is mostly because of the sci-fi aspect of the book.

Summary: Regan and Eliot are paired up in a top secret program that pertains to time travel. They both have known each other and they don't have a really strong bond. In fact, it is more hesitant and both of them look down on each other. They find out about a disaster that will ruin everything and race to save the Academy.

Glitch is an enemies to friends and a kind of boring historical fiction novel by Laura Martin. This book is about two enemies, Elliot and Regan. They both live at a glitching academy on a remote island in the USA. The glitch academy produces glitchers who go back into time to keep history on its right tracks. Elliot and Regan are put into a different part of the academy and are taught how to glitch in unexpected times and how to capture the butterfly or the person trying to change history.

Red shouldn’t have picked up the letter. Shouldn’t have betrayed her people. Shouldn’t have replied. But she did, and now nothing will ever be the same again. Red is a time traveler working for the Agency, a technotopia, while Blue is an agent for the Garden, a vast, organic entity rooted in nature. As rivals, they travel through strands of alternate realities and dimensions, influencing them to guide the path of the future in an all-encompassing war. They were made to be enemies — so why does it feel so right when they craft the words that bridge the untraversable gap between them?

I love this book! Passenger, first in an anticipated series, centers around Etta, who is a seventeen year old New Yorker. She has focused her entire life on her violin career but is thrust into a time travel adventure full of family secrets, historical events, and romance.

Gabi and Lia Bentarrini are two teenage girls who will be spending the summer in Italy.  That sounds pretty good until they realize that they'll be spending it with their mother—on the archeological site of an old medieval castle—in the middle of nowhere.  Boredom leads the girls to explore an ancient tomb which is strictly off limits.  Inside, Gabi sees a hand print on the wall and wonders if her hand will fit.  Seconds later, Gabi's head is spinning and she falls to the ground, realizing Lia is no longer with her in the tomb.
