***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Pemberton Academy is not just a school, it’s a gathering place for the children of the future that are afflicted with Temporal Displacement and Telepathy; in short, time travelers and mind readers who have been diagnosed with this “disease.” The Academy is not all as it seems after an explosion nearly takes one of its classmates, but not before Carter Gabel rescues her by using an unknown symptom related to his described illness. An unsanctioned group called the Program begins taking notice as the two classmates exhibit stronger abilities when they are together. Carter’s sense of reality begins to unwind as he learns more about his estranged father’s involvement with it all.
Carter will have to overcome the past of his father leaving, the present of an unknown adversary hunting him down and a future that seems to change with each decision he makes. He will have to learn who to trust out of the people in his life if he wants to conquer the looming notion that the government may be hunting him down because of his developing abilities.
The main characters, Carter and Mo, are great. I’m not normally a fan of instant love couples but these two are a powerhouse. Strong, and unbeatable. I liked that Carter was tough and snarky but also was real. He didn’t have a fake feeling to him and I appreciated that. This author really took the time to craft two well round, full detailed characters! Very smart characters and believable.
A teen gets the ability to leap back in time. How freaking cool is that? The moment he time jumps, I was hooked! The author gives a lot of action in this book. There’s a lot of time jumping, and twists and turns and a killer ending which really makes me think there’s a book 2!
For a debut novel, this book was well written, interesting, reliable (as believable as SciFi can be), and completely fun! I loved reading it, and I highly recommend it to any other sci fi geeks out there!
