Review: Waking in Time by Angie Stanton

Still mourning the loss of her beloved grandmother and shaken by her mysterious, dying request to “find the baby,” Abbi has just arrived at UW Madison for her freshman year. But on her second day, she wakes up to a different world: 1983. That is just the first stop on Abbi’s journey backward through time. Will is a charming college freshman from 1927 who travels forward through time. When Abbi and Will meet in the middle, love adds another complication to their lives. Communicating across time through a buried time capsule, they try to decode the mystery of their travel, find the lost baby, and plead with their champion, a kindly physics professor, to help them find each other again ... even though the professor gets younger each time Abbi meets him. This page-turning story full of romance, twists, and delightful details about campus life then and now will stay with readers long after the book’s satisfying end

Expected publication: March 1st 2017 by Capstone

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you!  The book was just released on March 1st.

I honestly enjoyed this story more than I thought I would.  In the interest of full disclosure, I chose it because I wanted a nice easy read for my vacation down south.  I thought this would be a good choice to pass the time and catch some rays without too much commitment.

The story captured me and got me thinking much more than I thought it would.  As the synopsis mentions, it is about two people who are travelling in time in opposite directions.  What held my attention was how Stanton managed to have the paths of these people cross multiple times and have it still work.  The logical side of me kept mapping everything out in my head to see if it could actually be feasible.  Well as feasible as time travel is anyway.

This story also held more depth than I was expecting.  I was lost in the story of Abbi's grandmother and her grandmothers mother.  This was an interesting way to unravel the mystery that was the "baby".  It is not just a YA read but it has a bit of history in it as well as the reader gets to experience the UW Madison through several different eras, and fashions.

I feel that this story will be well liked by many different demographics and I can certainly say that it was a win for me!
