A to Z: T is for Timebound

For this year's A to Z Blogging Challenge I'm featuring books that I'd like to read!

T is for: Timebound by Rysa Walker

When Kate Pierce-Keller’s grandmother gives her a strange blue medallion and speaks of time travel, sixteen-year-old Kate assumes the old woman is delusional. But it all becomes horrifyingly real when a murder in the past destroys the foundation of Kate’s present-day life. Suddenly, that medallion is the only thing protecting Kate from blinking out of existence.

Kate learns that the 1893 killing is part of something much more sinister, and her genetic ability to time travel makes Kate the only one who can fix the future. Risking everything, she travels back in time to the Chicago World’s Fair to try to prevent the murder and the chain of events that follows.

Changing the timeline comes with a personal cost—if Kate succeeds, the boy she loves will have no memory of her existence. And regardless of her motives, does Kate have the right to manipulate the fate of the entire world? 

If you could travel back in time, where and when would you visit?

1. I'd LOVE to go to the 1893 Chicago's World Fair. I was intrigued ever since I read The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson.  
2. I'd also travel back in time and to see Jesus teaching to the crowds -- My that would be amazing!

  1. I would like to go to the Philippines around the time that both sets of grandparents were young children, late 1880s-1890s, because I have no clue about my ancestry.
