* I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review! *
This story is really cute, but I found that it was too ambitious for such a short book. At roughly 200 pages, everything moves really quickly and doesn’t leave much room for anything other than the plot movement. We didn’t really get any development in the characters or their relationships so while the plot was interesting and fun, I wasn’t able to get invested in it. I really loved the plot and the whole concept, but time travel can be so tricky and there were too many holes left open. The way the book ended made everything feel pointless because it didn’t answer any of the questions set up in the plot. In short, the concept was great, but it needed a lot more development to become a fully fleshed out novel.
