Convince us to read the book: Jordan Sonnenblick creates another memorable book going out of his normal genre and writing a scifi/historical fiction book. He tells the tale of a boy traveling back in time by playing a guitar signed by Jimi Hendrix to discover the cause of his uncle's death. He uses great historical references and ideas to make the book an amazing story. I enjoy how he portrayed a fifteen year old boy. I would love to discuss this book with others to share opinions on the author's usual writing style portrayed in this book. I highly recommend it.
Memorable or Forgettable: The author's unique writing style in a science fiction book made this a great read. I loved how the author used the setting of the book. It is a great book to learn about decisions and choices in life.
Cover: The cover was the main reason I read the book. It shows a young man with "hipster hair" playing an electric guitar. I liked how it related to the story and portrayed the book well.
