I really didn't know what to expect with this one. It was written by Ann Brasheres who wrote the ever popular Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series. It was a totally different type of story. It reminded me more of the Terminator actually, without the scary Terminator that is. 
Prenna and her community have time traveled from a future where climate change and disease has desolated the population. She thinks they are coming back to change things for the better but is surprised to learn from a mysterious stranger that that might be the last thing they are planning on doing.  With the help of Ethan, a "time native" she meets in school, she sets out to try and change the future herself. 

I enjoyed the story but wasn't surprised by the twists. I figured out a lot of them ahead of time but that didn't keep me from reading and enjoying. It was a good thriller mixed with a bit of romance. I believe kids really will love this and hope for more books about Prenna and Ethan.
