Synopsis:
Boy watching with her best friend would be enough excitement for fifteen year old Casey Donovan. She doesn't even mind life at the bottom of the Cambridge High social ladder, if only she didn't have this other much bigger problem. Unscheduled trips to the nineteenth century!

When Casey gets talked into going to the Fall Dance, the unthinkable happens--she accidentally takes Nate Mackenzie, the cutest boy in the school, back in time.

Protocol pressures her to tell their 1860 hosts that he is her brother and when Casey finds she has a handsome, wealthy (and unwanted) suitor, something changes in Nate. Are those romantic sparks or is it just 'brotherly' protectiveness?

When they return to the present things go back to the way they were before: Casey at the bottom of the social totem pole and Nate perched on the very the top. Except this time her heart is broken. Plus, her best friend is mad, her parents are split up, and her little brother gets escorted home by the police. The only thing that could make life worse is if, by some strange twist of fate, she took Nate back to the past again.

Which of course, she does.

My Thoughts
This was a fun and lighthearted read that will have readers laughing and smiling the entire time.
The story was interesting and I liked seeing how Casey handles her ability to go (and even take people with her) to the past. Time travel has always been one of the things that interest me and its role in the story made it all the more enjoyable.
I liked Casey and had fun getting to know her. The way she interacted with people in the past was definitely interesting. Having to deal not only with going to the past, but bringing along her crush had to have been hard. I liked the way she handled herself though and my heart went out to her when he broke her heart.
I thought Nate was a great character for the story and he helped bring about a lot of comical situations. He was definitely a fun character to get to know.
I highly recommend this story to anyone looking for a fun Time Travel story!
