I want to say a big, big thank you to Sky Pony Press for sending me a finished copy of this book!!
This was one of my most anticipated books for the year, it has a time travel, the main character suffers from PTSD, part of the book takes place during war, and I just wanted a copy of this book asap.
I believe this is a debut novel, so I have to give the author a big round of applause. There were so many elements going on in this book and for the most part I thought they were handled really well. This is a 300ish page book and I flew through it.
The story alternates between Kale and Harper and it jumps between the two timelines. I thought Harper's POV really balanced out the darker moments in Kale's story. While I did enjoy that balance between the death and destruction of war with navigating first dates, I wasn't completely sold.
My main complaint with this book was I felt that we were skimming the surface. Harper didn't feel like a complete character. I wanted to know more about her, I wanted to see her take more action. It just felt that everything was happening to her.
Kale went through so many changes that Harper just felt frozen in comparison. She was such a large portion of this book yet I felt like I learned nothing from her.
Overall, I really liked this book and I will give it a B-.
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
