Time Between Us - 
Tamara Ireland Stone
Released: October 25, 2012
Publisher: Doubleday Childrens

Synopsis: Anna and Bennett were never supposed to meet: she lives in 1995 Chicago and he lives in 2012 San Francisco. But Bennett has the unique ability to travel through time and space, which brings him into Anna’s life, and with him a new world of adventure and possibility.

As their relationship deepens, the two face the reality that time may knock Bennett back to where he belongs, even as a devastating crisis throws everything they believe into question. Against a ticking clock, Anna and Bennett are forced to ask themselves how far they can push the bounds of fate, what consequences they can bear in order to stay together, and whether their love can stand the test of time.

Fresh, exciting, and deeply romantic, Time Between Us is a stunning, spellbinding debut from an extraordinary new voice in YA fiction.

What it's about: Anna is a teenage girl living in 1995. Bennett is a teenage boy living in 2012. After an accident with his sister, Bennett ends up stuck in 1995, looking for her. Yes, Bennett can travel through time and to different places in the world, just with a thought. It's scary, it's exciting and the outcome is fantastic - the relationship between Anna and Bennett is  unlike any other.

What I thought: So. Many. Feels. So many. Holy smokes, this book was absolutely amazing. Yes, it is like a YA version of The Time Traveler's Wife, and it blew me away. This concept of time travel has been done before, but Tamara Ireland Stone somehow makes it feel new and exciting.  She has even made the boy meets girl story something special, something that touches your heart. There was nothing I didn't like about the book - I loved all the characters, the twists and turns in the story, the relationship between the two main characters. With every page I turned, I feel deeper into the story, wanting it to never end.

This is a wonderful contemporary novel, mixed with a bit of science-fiction, giving us a book that I guarantee, you won't be able to put down. There may even be tears (or perhaps I'm just a hopeless romantic!)

The Good: This book makes you see things through different eyes. It will touch your heart, your mind and your soul.

The Bad: I want more Bennett and Anna!
