Six Word Review:  Girl trying to not disappear forever

I give Timebound 8/10 stars because it’s unique and funny and unlike any other time travel book I’ve read. ​I hated not knowing if time was a circle as it is in some time travel books. I loved the characters and I couldn’t get enough of how realistic their emotions were.

If the main character was stuck on a deserted island they would… find a way to build a raft, even if there weren’t any trees.

In a yearbook, the main character would be voted most likely to solve the world’s biggest problems.

This book reminded me of Ruby Red by Kerstin Gler because it evokes the same feelings of uncertainty, at same the time that it pulls you into its world.

Anything else we should know? This is the first book in the series. The second book is called Time’s Edge, which to me sounds very promising and hopefully will answer all the questions Timebound leaves readers asking.
