Blurb (from Goodreads):
They exist in two different centuries, but their love defies time
Cassandra craves drama and adventure, so the last thing she wants is to spend her summer marooned with her mother and stepfather in a snooty Massachusetts shore town. But when a dreamy stranger shows up on their private beach claiming it's his own—and that the year is 1925—she is swept into a mystery a hundred years in the making.
As she searches for answers in the present, Cassandra discovers a truth that puts their growing love—and Lawrence's life—into jeopardy. Desperate to save him, Cassandra must find a way to change history…or risk losing Lawrence forever.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was a YA time-travel romance, with a bittersweet ending.
Cassandra wasn’t the nicest person at the beginning of this book, and she was pretty rude to her parents and Lawrence. Thankfully she improved as the book went along though, and started to think of other people than herself all the time.
The storyline in this was about Cass and Lawrence meeting on a beach and getting a bit confused over where each lived as they lived in the same house just in different time periods, and eventually working out that something weird was going on. We got a little bit about the butterfly effect, and then Cass found out that Lawrence was going to be murdered on the beach in less than two weeks’ time, and set out to change that, even though she should have considered the butterfly effect again.
The pace in this was a bit slow, and I did find it hard to stay interested.
The ending to this was pretty bittersweet, although what can you really expect from a time-travel romance?
