“Ryan and Ameliah. Two teenagers separated by time but infinitely connected. You could call this a love story. You could call it a time-travel story. Or a story of hope and fate and all the magic of the universe…but to really get it, you just have to read it.”

~Book Jacket

Synopsis: The book jacket pretty much says everything it can without giving everything away. Ryan and Ameliah are separated by 20 years of time, but have similarities in their lives. Ameliah is adjusting to her new life while remembering her parents, but also learning about their lives before she came along. Ryan is adjusting to a new life, remembering his mom, and  falling for a girl. Then Ameliah finds a tape, which leads her to more questions than answers. These two teenagers are connected, there is a love story and a plot twist I did not see coming in the end. This book also gives Ameliah’s side of the story as well as Ryan’s.

My Opinion: This book was different from any book I have ever read. I did not really like it at first, but as I kept reading I got interested. Not too far in I predicted the connection and was right. This book was a little easy to predict but some things happened that I did not expect to happen. I also predicted the plot twist, but second guessed myself but in end I was right again. Even though I predicted a lot of the connections, what happened within the connections was crazy. I guess what I mean is some things that happened between characters I did not expect to happen. In the end it is cool to see how everything worked out and to think about how everything is connected. All I can say is you have to read it to understand it. I did really like this book more than I thought I was going to like it. I am sorry if this review sounds confusing but just read the book and you will understand where I am coming from. I hope you like it as much as I did!

Recommendation: I would recommend this book to people who want to read something different.
