Without having a spoiler, I can tell you this: the author does a good job of quickly grabbing your attention, and is able to get you to visualize the various scenes / scenarios of the characters and makes you want to see what happens next; unfortunately, I could see a set of scenarios happening that make the Party come into power (without the sci fi aspect of it). The ending was a little predictable but it was an entertaining read. I did find myself wanting a little more as the story ended - I hope a sequel comes out soon.
I originally picked this up for free during a Kindle promotion and, as I type this review, I see the Kindle version is now priced at just 99 cents: I would say it is well worth the investment.
Matt lives with the pain of killing his girlfriend and teammates in a car accident while driving drunk. He would do anything to go back in time to change what happened. Farrah's mom committed suicide when Farrah was 8 years old. She feels that she could say something or do something that might help her mother changed her mind and live, if she could just go back in time. Rick believes in government conspiracies and that the government is watching everyone and has secrets hidden in area 31. It is like area 51, only it has live space creatures and Big Foot. He has stolen his father's passwords and been able to hack into The Party's satellite connections and witnessed some of the secrets being held. He wants to join the party so he can be on the inside and know all the secrets first hand. Matt and Farrah want to join the party so they can use the time travel machine and fix the past.
All three are accepted into the Party's summer program and all three have their own agenda. Rick thinks he is smarter than the Party, Farrah starts to fall for Matt, Matt doesn't plan on coming back when he goes through the time wrinkle.
This was well written and a pleasant surprise in a free download. (SERIOUSLY, if grammar errors and misspelled words bother you to the point you can't enjoy the story, stay away from this one. I never take off stars for grammar as it does not seem fair to the story teller, just warning those that do). I will definitely be downloading the sequel when it comes out.
Would I/Did I buy it? Free Download
Would I listen/read it again? Yes, for review before the next one comes out
Would I recommend it to friends? Yes
The story centers around 3 teenagers. You can read the book description, and I don't want to give any spoilers away. It held my attention from beginning to end. When I read the last paragraph I was surprised. I wanted more. I quickly got online to find out if book 2 was out yet. I actually got this as a free download, but was ready to buy the next one. I keep checking for it to come out.
Would I recommend this, yes, especially if you like sci fi, etc. I would also let my teenager and even my 10 year old advanced reader read this book. It is nice to have a great story line out there that is rated PG for a change. For .99 you can't go wrong with this book!
