A desperate girl
A faulty time machine
A paradox waiting to happen ...
Laken Mitchel wants revenge, but she also wants to help certain "unfortunates.". Using the time machine in her family's hidden laboratory, she sends them one by one into the last century.
Now the disappearances are being linked to unmarked graves. Parents are lying about their missing kids’ whereabouts. The police want to search the lab. And Laken is running out of time to retrieve the last girl she sent to 1994.
The plot twist was obvious to me, but it was fun to see the foreshadowing the author offered the reader to keep them guessing. The relationship that Laken had with Skylar is that of a true friendship. How they interact around the time paradox and the things that happen to tear them apart and pull them together was fascinating, and really entertaining.
I couldn't really get around the whole murder thing. It didn't seem to really bother her in the least. Like a "oh yeah, that girl was mean." And as much as the author tried to make it that LAken thought her heart was in the right place, it was so, so wrong. Her lack of remorse was a bit strange.
