    A Fun, Paranormal YA!

    I gave this 3 1/2 on my blog, but am rounding up.

    Clockwise, by Elle Strauss is a fun, lighthearted book about Casey, a time traveler, and her struggles to manage school, friends, family, and her crush, all while trying to navigate the world in two different time periods. And when Casey accidentally takes her crush, Nate, into the past with her, her world becomes even more complicated.

    There were two big aspects to the book that I felt the author got spot-on right away. The first is the tone of the book. From the very first sentence I knew that I would, at the very least, have a nice time reading Clockwise. The second aspect I liked was the fact that I never felt a huge secret was being dangled over my head. Strauss lets the reader in on the secret from the get-go. And I can't say how much I appreciated that.

    There were just a few small issues I had with Clockwise. The first was Nate. I know that hot, popular guys are "supposed" to be jerks to the poor wallflowers who love them, but his back and forth, hot and cold attitude wore pretty thin on me. Does the boy finally wise up and get his act together? I'll let you read and find out! The other issue is the lack in explanation of Casey's time-tripping abilities. Maybe that will be explored in a second book? I just wish I had a little more detail.

    Here's what I loved about Clockwise. The historical references tied in to Casey's travels. The author managed to sneak in some really great lessons on race and gender equality. And, I almost forgot! There was a super-cool, out-of-nowhere shocker. It was awesome and I never saw it coming.

    Clockwise would be a fabulous choice for a young reader who is itching to read a fun, paranormal young adult book.

    Favorite Quote ~

    " I followed Sara into the Good Ol' Book Shoppe, stunned by the
    great and ancient literary works. I picked up a volume of Gray's
    Anatomy, Descriptive and Surgical. And here I thought Grey's
    Anatomy was just a TV Drama."

    Good for a quick read

    An interesting story about a teenage girl, Casey, who time travels. A few things about her time travel...she has no control over it...she always goes back to the same place in the nineteenth century...she always returns to the exact time she left, so no one knows she ever left...skin to skin contact at the time she leaves can cause another person to travel with her... her best friend is the only person who knows she travels in time...that is, until she accidentally travels with the boy she has a crush on, Nate...the popular high school jock.
