Publisher's Summary

2013 Winner - Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award - Grand Prize and Young Adult Fiction Winner.
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?

Looking forward to the next installment

I was impressed with the this book which I presume is a series of YA books about time travel. I found the main protagonist easy to relate to and a good role model for young women in terms of not only being able to take care of herself but also thoughtful and considerate of the consequences of her actions. There is of course the inevitable 'torn between two hot guys' scenario and a element of danger - but the time travel aspect and the idea of how different timelines are be real to different people is enough to make it special. The narrator is excellent even the Irish accent which, although not very Irish, is at least soft and consistent - often Irish accents by Americans are like nails down a chalk board to those who know what it is supposed to sound like.

Slightly strange voice

The story was great. It might just be me but the narrator's voice was quite distracting at first as it sounds a bit robotic in the way her speech patterns go. As a Brit I found it odd. You get used to it though and she is good at doing different voices for the different characters (although some Irish may be a little offended by her attempt at an Irish accent!!)
