At a school where Quantum Paradox 101 is a required course and history field trips are literal, sixteen year-old time traveler Bree Bennis excels…at screwing up.

After Bree botches a solo midterm to the 21st century by accidentally taking a boy hostage (a teensy snafu), she stands to lose her scholarship. But when Bree sneaks back to talk the kid into keeping his yap shut, she doesn't go back far enough. The boy, Finn, now three years older and hot as a solar flare, is convinced he's in love with Bree, or rather, a future version of her that doesn't think he's a complete pain in the arse. To make matters worse, she inadvertently transports him back to the 23rd century with her.

Once home, Bree discovers that a recent rash of accidents at her school are anything but accidental. Someone is attacking time travelers. As Bree and her temporal tagalong uncover seemingly unconnected clues—a broken bracelet, a missing data file, the art heist of the millennium—that lead to the person responsible, she alone has the knowledge to piece the puzzle together. Knowledge only one other person has. Her future self.

But when those closest to her become the next victims, Bree realizes the attacker is willing to do anything to stop her. In the past, present, or future.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 25, 2014 – Debut author Akins introduces the intricate world of Shifters people born with the ability to travel through time who are then trained (and monitored closely) by the government. Bree Bennis, a Shifter in training from the 23rd century, has traveled back two centuries to retrieve an item she left behind on a previous trip when the unthinkable happens. She somehow brings someone from the 21st century back to the future a teenager named Finn, who insists that he has been ordered to protect her and now won't leave her side. What follows is a complicated story that will test readers' notions of time and how it might be manipulated. Bree's and Finn's relationship is enjoyably tense yet playful, their undeniable attraction to each other bridging the centuries they each call home. Akins opts for a light, humorous take on the time-travel novel ("blark" is mishap-prone Bree's expletive of choice), but readers will still need to pay close attention, since the explanations about the mechanics of time travel can be tricky to follow. Ages 13 up.
