I want to thank Knopf books for young readers for providing me with a copy of this book to read and give an honest review. Receiving this book for free has in no way altered my opinion or review. I really enjoyed the first book in this series. I have a thing for well planned out time travel books. This one did it right. So of course I was happy to be able to read the second book in this series to see what was happening on the other side while the first book was in progress. This book is basically the parallel world of the first book. While it probably could be read on it's own, it was nice to have the background from the first book to see what was going along with it. I love that we get the other side of the perspective. I liked watching this version of Evee and Danny. Their different personalities, and lifestyles. I liked watching Danny figure out exactly how he needed to act and be in order to fit in and not get "caught" being in the wrong world. The romance was there in this book, but I wasn't drawn to it as I was in the first book. I felt much more of a connection with the characters' romance in book #1. I really like that this kind of took on a dystopian feel, while still being a time travel type of book. The world is totally different from book one. The government is very restrictive in this book and controls just about everything. It's the flip side of everything we saw after Danny was thrown from this world in the first book. Nicholas does a nice job presenting the parallel universe and showing us what happened after the blast. She delves in the rebels and how they intend to put a stop to the restrictive government. I like that the romance was not a huge part of this book. Sure, it's there, but it's really just scratching the surface of what we saw between the parallel characters in book one. Fans of Kasie West's Pivot Point series will fall right into Nichol's world.

If possible, I think I might have loved this book even more than the first book. During the first book, I thought of the original Danny and the alternate Eevee as almost evil, but, during this book, I fell in love with both of them just as much as I did with alternate Danny and original Eevee. Such great writing and wonderful characters. This author truly has a gift and I hope that she writes more books very soon.
