Waiting On Wednesday (7)

Julie Cross

January 3rd 2012

The year is 2009. Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy… he’s in college, has a girlfriend… and he can travel back through time. But it’s not like the movies – nothing changes in the present after his jumps, there’s no space-time continuum issues or broken flux capacitors – it’s just harmless fun.

That is… until the day strangers burst in on Jackson and his girlfriend, Holly, and during a struggle with Jackson, Holly is fatally shot. In his panic, Jackson jumps back two years to 2007, but this is not like his previous time jumps. Now he’s stuck in 2007 and can’t get back to the future.

Desperate to somehow return to 2009 to save Holly but unable to return to his rightful year, Jackson settles into 2007 and learns what he can about his abilities.

But it’s not long before the people who shot Holly in 2009 come looking for Jackson in the past, and these “Enemies of Time” will stop at nothing to recruit this powerful young time-traveler. Recruit… or kill him.

Piecing together the clues about his father, the Enemies of Time, and himself, Jackson must decide how far he’s willing to go to save Holly… and possibly the entire world.

Just looking at this cover I'm intrigued by this book. The story sounds good too, it seems like it will have the right amount of love, and loss, with a ton of action thrown in there too. I don't think I have ever read a time travel book where the person knows they have this ability and enjoy using it. So it should be interesting to me to see how Julie Cross interprets time travel. Every time I think about time travel books I feel like tit's going to be confusing. But I guess I will have to wait and see!
