Convince us to read the book: I thought the characters were kind of cliche. They were corny and more caught up in their love situations than the bigger events going on, and the choices they made were contradictory. In the dialogue, Marina only talked about James and herself, instead of the fact that they were supposed to be time-traveling to save the world. The same thing went for Em, talking only about Finn. So boring. The setting was confusing, and it wasn't just because of the time-traveling thing, I couldn't tell where it was either, sometimes in New York, sometimes in Russia, but I had to keep guessing, which wore me out. 
Memorable or Forgettable: The book was forgettable since it really did too much time traveling for one book. The most memorable thing was that I was confused the whole time.
Cover: The cover didn't reflect the contents at all because there were heads in 3D back and forward that they didn't talk about in the book.
Age Range: 12 through 15
Quality: 2Q Needs more work 
Popularity: 4P Broad general teen appeal
Annotation: Did you ever want to time travel? Have you ever wanted to change your past?
