Waiting on Wednesday (19) Tempest

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This weeks "waiting on and harassing bookshop staff" selection is:

Tempest by Julie Cross

About the Book

The year is 2009.  Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy… he’s in college, has a girlfriend… and he can travel back through time. But it’s not like the movies – nothing changes in the present after his jumps, there’s no space-time continuum issues or broken flux capacitors – it’s just harmless fun.
That is… until the day strangers burst in on Jackson and his girlfriend, Holly, and during a struggle with Jackson, Holly is fatally shot. In his panic, Jackson jumps back two years to 2007, but this is not like his previous time jumps. Now he’s stuck in 2007 and can’t get back to the future. 

Desperate to somehow return to 2009 to save Holly but unable to return to his rightful year, Jackson settles into 2007 and learns what he can about his abilities. But it’s not long before the people who shot Holly in 2009 come looking for Jackson in the past, and these “Enemies of Time” will stop at nothing to recruit this powerful young time-traveler.  

Recruit… or kill him. Piecing together the clues about his father, the Enemies of Time, and himself, Jackson must decide  how far he’s willing to go to save Holly… and possibly the entire world.

Why are we waiting for it 

Are you kidding!? An exciting YA novel that is bound to keep us glued to our couches... How can we not be waiting for it! Oh and Gone with the Word gave it a RAVE review here... 

 So, *grabs pen and paper for TBR pile additions*, what books are you waiting for?

You can also talk to us on the "tweeter" Tarryn and Kelly

There's something very compelling about that premise. Hey once you've read it let me know if it's very YA or if it's a good cross over, kay?
