On My TBR: Science Fiction
Into the Dim by Janet B. Taylor
When fragile, sixteen-year-old Hope Walton loses her mom to an earthquake overseas, her secluded world crumbles. Agreeing to spend the summer in Scotland, Hope discovers that her mother was more than a brilliant academic, but also a member of a secret society of time travelers. Trapped in the twelfth century in the age of Eleanor of Aquitaine, Hope has seventy-two hours to rescue her mother and get back to their own time. Along the way, her path collides with that of a mysterious boy who could be vital to her mission . . . or the key to Hope’s undoing. Addictive, romantic, and rich with historical detail, Into the Dim is an Outlander for teens.
Reasons to Read
- TIME TRAVELLLL! Since I'm now on a Legends of Tomorrow kick (aka the show on the CW with time travel), I'm all for a time travel book.
- "Outlander for teens" umm...yes, please. I love romance. I love Scotland. Sign me up.
- Twelfth century Scotland is actually a time period that I know little about, so it's definitely even more enticing to delve into a new historical setting for me.
- That tagline kicks ass.
