What I know: a boy in my class will one day wipe out two-thirds of the population with a virus.
What I don’t know: who he is.
In a race against the clock, I not only have to figure out his identity, but I’ll have to outwit a voice from the future telling me to kill him. Because I’m starting to realize no one is telling the truth. But how can I play chess with someone who already knows the outcome of my every move? Someone so filled with malice they’ve lost all hope in humanity? Well, I’ll just have to find a way—because now they’ve drawn a target on the only boy I’ve ever loved….

This book had so many twists and turns it kept me on the edge of my seat as I turned page after page trying to figure out just who really was the link to stopping the disaster in the future. I had a feeling from the beginning that it might be someone more important to Alice than just the guy she didn’t know, or his uncle. I had all kinds of hunches and thoughts about who it was really, and honestly, in the end I was right. But the way that the author took it was definitely not what I saw coming.
The way time travel was done in this book was so unique and something I’d not really read in any stories before. Even that made me keep guessing about what was really happening, and if what they did could actually change anything. I liked the way the book even touched on the whole theory of alternate universes.
While I may be a bit behind on the books of Pintip Dunn, the few that I’ve read so far have totally won me over and I need to read them all. I saw on another blog that this might be a series? Well, count me in for book 2 if so!
