Recommendation: Must Read
Summary: Casey Donovan, a fifteen year old with crazy curly hair, has a problem. She trips. Back in time, that is. Her secret is known only by her best friend, until she accidentally takes her amazingly cute crush, Nate, with her. Hello Civil War, goodbye twenty-first century.
Review: Clockwise is a great read for anyone liking time travel or American history. This book was an AWESOME step outside the oh-so-common YA paranormal/sci-fi/fantasy mojo that has been going on lately. The main character is quirky, awkward, has her wits about her, and is all around believable. I found myself laughing out loud at times. Seriously, Casey Donovan would have been my best friend in high school. Definitely a must read. AND IT IS A FREE KINDLE BOOK RIGHT NOW, SO GO GET IT!
