Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone focuses on Anna, a girl who lives in the year 1995, who meets a strange boy named Bennett. He appears and disappears one day when she is running at a track, but when she meets him again at school the next day, it's as if he never knew her in the first place. This starts a romantic adventure of a love that spans time, space, and every other dimension.
I don't want to say too much more about the plot, because it's incredible to get to experience it all firsthand. The writing is gorgeous, and it took all of my willpower to put it down last night and not stay up all night finishing it. The characters are well drawn, and it's hard not to like Anna. She's a great main character, and Bennett is intriguing. Her parents are briefly mentioned, but in a few deft strokes, you can tell what their personalities are like. Emma, as the best friend, was my other favorite-- and I can hear her Brit accent in my head. The plot races along at a perfect pace, and while I'm not usually one for description, it takes a central role in this novel. I can imagine all the beautiful places in my head so effortlessly with the way Stone describes them. I can feel the sand between my toes, and the chalk as I dust it on my hands before hitching myself up on the first crease of a rock face.
There are certain plot twists that I was doubtful about, but it all comes full circle as all loose ends are tied up in a way that makes sense and is completely believable (in this novel's reality). The ending is spot on-- usually difficult for most authors.Read more ›
I bought the hardcover of this book while still had the ARC to read, and once I finished this book I was so glad that I went out and spend the money to buy this book in its finished form. I loved how this book made me squeel as Bennet did these nice things for Anna and their romance budded.
I also loved the time travel theory that Tamara Ireland Stone came up with. That Bennet could go no earlier than his birth and no later than the date that he was in. I think that too often people want to write about time travel but not the different intricacies that go into traveling through time.
I think what really did it for me in this book was that Anna wasn't a push over when it came to her relationship with Bennet. When she got mad at him for something he did that she felt was wrong, she stuck with it, she didn't let herself be pushed around because she didn't want to lose him, and she most certainly didn't go catatonic when life ripped them apart.
All in all, my friends, move this to the top of your to-read list, because this is a book you don't want to miss out on.
Bennett travels through time, and usually he does it for fum. But this time, there is a reason he has to go back, and ends up in Anna's time. As much as he tries to stay away, tries to remain unnoticed by all so he doesn't disturb "history", is there a possibility that things happened for a reason? Was he meant to come here? To meet her?
Anna goes to a private school where everyone is the majority of the students are privileged own cars and have traveled plenty. Anna is okay with the fact that her parents both have to work overtime in order to put through her school to give her the best education and she is all prepared to start her senior year, with the hopes to travel once she graduates. It is something that she has always wanted to do and fears that she may not be able to because of her lack of finances... but in the end, life is good for Anna.
When she meets Bennett, its hard to say how she feels about him. And as she bumps into him and little by little gets to know him, she is not sure what to think of him. They're relationship slowly unfolds... she continuously feels that that Bennett may be hiding things; that he may not be telling her everything... can she trust him?
I really loved seeing how independent Anna was! Even after meeting Bennett and the things they went through, she did not completely crumble but got herself together and became stronger.
Oh my, and Bennett... you will fall in love with this boy! Other than the fact that he is a time traveler, he is still such a unique and memorable character. He is not perfect, but no boy ever is. But he makes up for it, in so many ways.
As a teen who grew up in the early 90's (oh my, did I just give away my age?!Read more ›
I couldn't put this book down; I read it in two days and even stayed up till 3 am to finish reading the book. I couldn't wait to find out what happens next and I really couldn't wait to find out how it ends. I loved the characters, loved Anna's best friend Emma and the entire storyline. I knew they would end up together (as all YA books end) but was dying to know how it would work out since Anna lives in 1995 and Bennett lives in 2012. But that is where the problem lies, it just ended and they lived happily ever after not explaining at all how. How did he make it back? How will he be able to stay? What about the real him in 2012? How did the 30 year-old Anna find the 17 year-old in San Francisco in 2012 in the beginning of the book? No answers were given. Maybe I was expecting too much from a YA novel but I just think there are too many questions left without answers. There is so much more of a story to tell and I think that Tamara Ireland Stone has way more writing material to give to us then let this story and the characters go. Because I loved the characters, I loved the story, I love the idea but I just didn't like how it ended leaving so much opened. I felt like a relationship ended and I didn't get the closure I needed. Does that make sense?
Like I said, there is so much more on this story I am dying to find out, like what about Anna's best friends Emma & Justin?Read more ›
