Gr 7-10–In this sequel to So Close to You (HarperCollins, 2012), Lydia Bentley has returned through the time machine to her home in 2012. But it is not the home that she remembers. Her trip to 1944 has altered the time line drastically, and Lydia is desperate to get her old life back. When Wes, the Montauk Project operative who helped her return home, appears one night, Lydia is only too willing to travel with him through time again. Their new mission takes them to 1989, hoping to reverse Lydia's grandfather's disappearance, uncover the truth about the Project, and extract Wes from it permanently. However, time travel proves to be much more complex than that. As more facts surface, the possibility of escaping the Project becomes slimmer and slimmer. This Strange and Familiar Place starts out cautiously but slowly rises to a heart-pounding finish. Carter's characters are again complete and engaging. Readers of the series will anxiously await the conclusion of the trilogy and the resolution of Wes and Lydia's stormy romance.–Sara Saxton, Tuzzy Consortium Library, Barrow, AKα(c) Copyright 2013.
