Sounds like a captivating read. Time travel with a historical twist! I like that Abby maintains a mature disposition throughout. Great review!

I am a sucker for storylines with a high school background. I will really enjoy this one. Also, Abby's ability to time travels sounds intriguing. I feel this book must be a paranormal or fantasy romance, that also deals with historical elements. And, Nathaniel sounds hot... lol...Thank you for the interesting review... keep up the good job...

Time travel is one of my favorite genres. Traveling back to the time of the American Revolution is another plus. The young adult level of the book is not that appealing, but the score is two to one! Loved your review. Thanks.

Thanks for this review, it sounds like a great book. I appreciate the fact that she has a mature attitude about her time travel, as sometimes in YA novels it is oversimplified, which really irritates me! As I struggle with commas as well, that probably wouldn't bug me!

This novel sounds like an intriguing combination of a sci-fi reincarnation story balanced by a solid grounding in Abby's modern-day world. I like that the time travel bit has been added to the mix as well. Abby being inexplicably drawn to Nathaniel sounds like a love story I would love to find out about. This one is going on my TBR shelf. Thanks for the review!

This book sounds quite captivating. I remember reading quite a lot of time-travel fantasy books when I was a teenager and being quite fascinated with them. I'm not sure that I'd still enjoy this type of narrative, but this particular book sounds quite intriguing and so does your review!
