{Synopsis} – Still mourning the loss of her beloved grandmother and shaken by her mysterious, dying request to “find the baby,” Abbi has just arrived at UW Madison for her freshman year. But on her second day, she wakes up to a different world: 1983. That is just the first stop on Abbi’s journey backward through time. Will is a charming college freshman from 1927 who travels forward through time. When Abbi and Will meet in the middle, love adds another complication to their lives. Communicating across time through a buried time capsule, they try to decode the mystery of their travel, find the lost baby, and plead with their champion, a kindly physics professor, to help them find each other again … even though the professor gets younger each time Abbi meets him. This page-turning story full of romance, twists, and delightful details about campus life then and now will stay with readers long after the book’s satisfying end.

{My thoughts} – Abigail and Will are two incredible individuals. They are both time travels – one goes back in time, and one goes forward in time. They meet each other at various times throughout their travels.

Time travel is an interest of mine, I have always enjoyed most books I have read that have been revolved around this particular aspect. This book didn’t disappoint me, it made me laugh and it made me almost tear up. It had a nice little mystery woven between its pages that helped to keep the not so intriguing romance aspect tolerable. In the end it was well written and well executed.

The way in which it is written has the potential to come of is slow and confusing. However, once you get into the book the style in which it is written becomes clear and it is easy to understand what is what and make sense of the words within it’s pages.

I do think that others that enjoy time travel books will enjoy this book as well, however, upon beginning the book you will need to keep an open mind and know that in the end it will all make sense.
