Though Lashonda’s book is short (27 pages) it provides a dynamic story that is not only imaginative but also seductive: time travel is something many of us dream but rarely place into the context of our lies the way Lashonda manages.
The flavor of her writing is evident as her main character enters the space where the wonder of the story begins: ‘I was actually looking forward to having my own dorm room. I would have my own space, when I’m actually here. I needed to concentrate on my work this semester anyway. I’m getting more into my major classes and I have a heavy course load this semester with the business and English classes, my schedule will be hectic. I have Marketing, Management, Accounting, English Literature, Art History, and Communications. I’m also working on campus at the library. I walked into the dorm building and stood in line for about five minutes. Everyone was waiting to sign in and find out which room they were going to be in and get their key. Bayousville Dorm was one of the largest girls’ dorms on campus, since it has three floors. It was also one of the oldest dorms on campus. It had an old French style to it, well Southern Louisiana has a lot of Creole, French, and Cajun influence…."Well this is the last box," Roger said, as he glanced at the old mirror in my dorm room. "Didn’t know the university was supplying the dorm rooms with antiques," Roger said, as he jokingly laughed. "Ha-ha. It’s definitely a classic," I replied. It’s sure wasn't a contemporary dorm mirror you would find at Walmart or Target in the dorm, back to school section. "I know it’s a classic, but I kind of like it," I said. Roger was kind of right. The mirror was the only thing in the room that had a classic look to it. Everything else in the room looked modern.’
The synopsis outlines the story well – ‘Justina Oceans is just a regular college student about to start her second year of college in the fictional town of Summersville, Louisiana. Justina's ordinary college life takes a turn one night after she walks through an old mirror in her dorm room and goes back in time to 1932. While Justina is back in 1932 everyone believes that she is Laurice Haywoods, a famous star of the 1920's and 30's whose boyfriend is Braston Brawns, a talented musician whose career is taking off as well. During Justina's time travels she learns why the past keeps pulling her back into Laurice Haywoods' world back in 1932.’
Tasty bit of strange written in an accessible conversational manner that makes the time travel aspects even more credible. A fine quick read. Grady Harp, May 18
Rayla (Justina’s BFF, Nursing) is in Bayousville Dorm # 63, 2nd floor.
Roger (Justina’s BMF, Chemistry) & his roommate Malcolm (band) are in Hooper Hall.
A look through the mirror & 8/1932, Jazz Nights nightclub. Jazz music was playing.
Braston Brawns (Laurice’s BF, musician) asked Ms. Laurice Haywoods (aka Justina, movie star) if she would care for some champagne.
Braston was in the Jazz group Rhythmics.
I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review, only an honest one. All thoughts & opinions are entirely my own.
A very awesome book cover, & great font/writing style. A very well written time travel (short story) book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great time travel movie, or better yet a mini TV series. A very easy rating of 4/5 stars.
Thank you for the free Instafreebie; Author; PDF book
