Rating: 2

My rating for this book is a 2 because the book is bland in my opinion and does not have intensive detail. This book failed to get my interest and I believe the main reason was not enough detail and the plot was very predictable.

Summary:

This is about a girl Lola. Her father is missing and everyone says that he died. Lola in disbelief starts trying to find him. She then has a story which is created that will be unique throughout her life.

Rating: 4 My rating for this book is a 4 because the book is bland in my opinion and does not have intensive detail. This book failed to get my interest for the most part and I think that is mostly because of the sci-fi aspect of the book.

Summary: Regan and Eliot are paired up in a top secret program that pertains to time travel. They both have known each other and they don't have a really strong bond. In fact, it is more hesitant and both of them look down on each other. They find out about a disaster that will ruin everything and race to save the Academy.
