Charlie’s the kind of boy that no one notices. Hell, even his own mother can’t remember his name. And girls? The invisible man gets more dates.

As if that weren’t enough, when a mysterious clockwork man tries to kill him in modern day Philadelphia, and they tumble through a hole into 1725 London, Charlie realizes even the laws of time don’t take him seriously.

Still, this isn’t all bad. In fact, there’s this girl, another time traveler, who not only remembers his name, but might even like him! Unfortunately, Yvaine carries more than her share of baggage: like a baby boy and at least two ex-boyfriends! One’s famous, the other’s murderous, and Charlie doesn’t know who is the bigger problem.

When one kills the other — and the other is nineteen year-old Ben Franklin — things get really crazy. Can their relationship survive? Can the future? Charlie and Yvaine are time travelers, they can fix this — theoretically — but the rules are complicated and the stakes are history as we know it.

And there’s one more wrinkle: he can only travel into the past, and she can only travel into the future!

Sounds great, doesn’t it? I read this book and you can tune back in on Monday to read my review. Now for a little bit about the author Andy Gavin:

  1. What a great story premise ~ one travels to the past and the other to the future! And the two ex-boyfriends, one of whom is famous and the other murderous … that got me laughing.

    As for where I’d travel, it would be Dickens’s 19th Century London or the American prairie.

  2. mmm… 17th Century I’m extremaly curious about that century, maybe because of the books, clothes and people.

    • Hi Kenia,
      Thanks so much for stopping and sharing. I think I’d like to visit the 17th century, but I’m not so sure I’d like to stay for too long. I’m pretty accustomed to modern conveniences. Hope to see you back again soon.


  3. i would love to go back in time to see ancient japan

  4. I would love to travel to the past- but I would also love to travel to the future (seeing outer space would be cool). Decisions, decisions. 🙂

    Thanks for the giveaway! I would love to read this book and I really enjoyed visiting Andy’s website.

    • I Jess,
      Thanks for stopping by. How cool would it be to travel to the future, although I can’t get the image of the Jetson’s out of my mind 🙂 I would be afraid to know what happens to me though. Isn’t Andy’s website neat. Thanks again for commenting. Have a great day.
