Initial Thoughts: So this book is being toted to me as “It is The Time Traveler’s Wife for teens, and meets 1920s glamour that’s perfect for fans of The Great Gatsby and Bright Young Things.” And also “Love, murder, and mystery make for a swoon-worthy romance”. So I couldn’t resist. Can’t wait to see what the cover looks like!
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire (November 3rd 2015)
Hardcover: 336 pages
They exist in two different centuries, but their love defies time
Cassandra craves drama and adventure, so the last thing she wants is to spend her summer marooned with her mother and stepfather in a snooty Massachusetts shore town. But when a dreamy stranger shows up on their private beach claiming it’s his own—and that the year is 1925—she is swept into a mystery a hundred years in the making.
As she searches for answers in the present, Cassandra discovers a truth that puts their growing love—and Lawrence’s life—into jeopardy. Desperate to save him, Cassandra must find a way to change history…or risk losing Lawrence forever.
(After) thoughts: I like the sideway-ness and the font! Not sure how I feel about the swirl things. The colours are nice, but a little brightness would have helped. Overall, a pretty cover!
So what do you guys think!
