Waiting On Wednesday [@hmhkids @Janet_B_Taylor]

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

My pick for this week:



INTO THE DIM by Janet B Taylor

“Her future is a thousand years in the past.”

Being “the home-schooled girl” in a small town, Hope Walton’s crippling phobias and photographic memory don’t endear her to her dad's perfectly blond, very Southern family. When her mother is killed in a natural disaster thousands of miles from home, Hope’s secluded world implodes. After being shipped off to an aunt she's never met, Hope learns there's more to her mother's "death" than she ever dreamed. At her aunt's manor, high in the Scottish Highlands, Hope begins to unravel the shocking truth about her family. Her mom isn't just a brilliant academic. She’s a member of a secret society of time travelers, and is currently trapped in the twelfth century in the age of King Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine. To stage a rescue, the sheltered teen must join the Indiana Jones-wannabe team of time-jumpers, before her mother is lost for good. In a brutal, medieval world, Hope will discover more family secrets, and a mysterious boy who could be vital to setting her mother free…or the very key to Hope’s undoing.

Addictive and rich with historical detail, INTO THE DIM (Coming Spring 2016 from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) is an unlikely heroine's story of adventure, sacrifice, and first love, in a high stakes race against time itself.

Why?

Time travel.

Okay there is a bit more to it than that, but that is the definite first point in why I want to read Into the Dim. There is not enough YA time travel going on. Certainly not enough with girls from the Scottish Highlands having to go back to the time of Eleanor of Aquitaine to save their mother.

(Plus I'm loving the possibilities of 'family secrets' and 'a mysterious boy.')
