Blurb (from Goodreads):
Seventeen-year-old Skylar has been haunted for as long as she can remember by fleeting yet powerful sensations that something is horribly wrong. But despite the panic attacks tormenting her, nothing ever happens, and Sky’s beginning to think she’s crazy. Then she meets a mysterious, otherworldly boy named Win and discovers the shocking truth her premonitions have tapped into: our world no longer belongs to us. For thousands of years, Earth has been at the mercy of alien scientists who care nothing for its inhabitants and are using us as the unwitting subjects of their time-manipulating experiments. Win belongs to a rebel faction seeking to put a stop to it, and he needs Skylar’s help--but with each shift in the past, the very fabric of reality is unraveling, and soon there may be no Earth left to save.
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Oh dear me, this book was so boring it reminded me of ‘Earth Girl’.
Skylar had issues. She seemed to have a degree of OCD, with odd compulsions, and coping strategies similar to that of a person with autism. Nothing against people with these conditions, but Skylar kind of annoyed me at points, and she was also way too trigger-happy when it came to changing history. Think about what you are doing before you do it please!
The storyline in this just bored me. I’m sure other people will like it, but I just could not keep my eyes open. There was action – I was bored,
people died – I was bored,
we found out shocking revelations – I had to prop my eyelids open with matchsticks.
There was romance, but I really didn’t care what happened with that, the same was I didn’t care what happened to the rest of the storylines.
The ending to this was such a relief! I cannot tell you how much I do not want to read the sequel to this book!
Overall; dull, dull, dull
