If the sci fi premise seems far-fetched, trust me, just go with it, because it's totally worth it. Costa doesn't go too far into the science details--that's not the point. It's really an allegory about confronting your past, knowing yourself, and maturing from the extended adolescence of your early twenties to a more settled, adult life in your thirties. I could really relate to Claudia's mixture of embarrassment and defensiveness when considering her own wild years.
The romance between Adam and Claudia is so sweet. At first when Claudia's frustrated with him he seemed a little cold, but he really grew on me, and by the end I was tearing up. His disability is portrayed very realistically, but it's not the main focus. Most stories with a wheelchair and time travel would center around fixing the disability, but this book is much more about changing attitudes and emotions.
Claudia is in love. For the first time she's found her heart, and it's within Adam, the super geeky inventor boyfriend, who also happens to be a paraplegic. His disability was a focus, but not in the typical way. His character wasn't belittled, or made to seem any different than a character that was able to stand. He was sexy, and charming, and intelligent (genius, really), and he made one HECK of a boyfriend. This aspect was, by far, my favourite, and I wished more authors had the guts to introduce more intellectually, or physically, challenged characters into their books.
Adam creates a time machine. Or as he would rather put it, a "wormhole". He then makes a 'simple' request of Claudia: he wants her to travel back in time, and stop the accident that permanently confined him to a wheelchair. She obliges, and embarks on a journey of a lifetime (literally). The consequences were to be expected, and the moments of hilarity and distress were in the multiples.Read more ›
Although some other reviewers seem to feel this was written for a YA (Young Adult) audience, I thought it was rather realistically portraying the thoughts and actions of the characters at their different ages. Yes, Claudia made some dumb moves, said things she shouldn't have, made mistakes, but considering she was time traveling - well, there really isn't a lot of direction for how to behave when you are dealing with a dozen years or so in a different time. I especially appreciate that editing seemed to be well done - none of the spelling errors, simple grammar mistakes etc that often plague Kindle version books.
Maybe it was too late at night for me to be dealing with the mental logistics of what happened in the past, and the reveal of how it affected "today" at the end of the book, and I intend to re-read the last couple of chapters to pigeonhole the events. But the ending was neatly wrapped up, and the epilogue tied it up with a bow. Well done.Read more ›
