Okay so, Anna lives in trivia that you're probably not interested in but I'll say it anyway: I was born that year. A guy that is sitting in a bench is looking at her oddly.. And that bugged Anna. So when the guy showed up in her school and introduced himself as Bennett, Anna knew that this guy is hiding something and that somehow, she can't stay away from him. She's actually interested about everything about him. You know, it's not a secret that I'm very picky about MC's. They affect my reading a lot and sometimes even though the plot is great, but the MC is downright annoying?!
I'll just DNF it. But Anna is so darn likeable. She's so sweet and genuine and very.. Like, it's really hard not to be mesmerized by her. Bennett on the on the other hand is not that different. He's so I cannot even describe it. Now, the plot. When I learned that Bennett is the one who can travel through time, I already want an explanation.. Like, how?? How can he do that exactly?
Is he some experiment from a lab? Is he some math genius who studied time stuff?
Good thing, our main character isn't some dense dimwit and she knows how to ask the right questions. But I was really disappointed when I got some answers.

Shelves: contemporary-romance , cute , made-me-emotional , young-adult , hybrid-multiple-genre , time-travel. If only we were separated by this distance.
But we're not. We're separated by this distance plus seventeen years. Maybe there was nothing extra-special about the writing or the story, but the simplicity is most likely what appealed to me the most. There were no love triangles, no extra helpings of cheese, no simpering heroines, no annoying tendencies.
This was a love story in its purest form, and I fell hard for the telling of it. I was able to overlook a pretentious name like Bennett Cooper the names by themselves are fine, but together it looks douchey , or to even skip right over a mention of a borrowed pencil feeling like a connection worth mentioning. The reason why is because the silly little things were simply that - little details which didn't detract from the greater story. All of my time spent reading this particular story felt like time worth investing.
As I got closer to the end, my nervousness grew to a point where I didn't know how I would be able to handle if these two sweet people were not able to be together. Testing fate, toying with it, may not have any obvious impact at first, but eventually something has to backfire. It's not often that a love story comes along and manages to get me as invested as this one did.
I loved every moment of this journey and am looking forward to book 2, even though I think this book ended at a good point. View all 42 comments. Sep 23, Katy rated it did not like it. This book received SO many raving reviews, and I feel like I'm the odd one out. But to sum it all up, I just didn't get it.
I think this book had a lot of potential, but there were just too many holes and inconsistencies.

Out of all the young adult time travel books I have read, I think this book impressed me the least. And you know that a book is unmemorable when you sit down to write a review a few days later, and you have already forgotten a lot of what you have read. Since I'm not sure how much I can explain without making the whole review spoiler-free, I'm just going to hide the rest of it.
But on the other hand, it kind of defeats the whole wonder of the concept because history can be so interesting.
To me, the storyline was just meh. Neither Anna nor Bennett were really exceptional. On a side note, neither one had great relationships with family or best friends that made the side stories interesting. I can see how Stone attempted to show us the consequences of changes, but those side stories just made me dislike Anna for how selfish and bratty she can be. Also, what were the consequences of Bennett helping his father? Okay, so there are two parallels? How many are there? So he comes back.

Yes, they solve the whole Anna taking her trip situation. But what about future events? There are no consequences from this time? How in the world is he supposed to stay with her? With this book, the basic story was too bland, and the overall concept made no sense for me to enjoy it.
