Author: Janet B. Taylor
Release date: March 1, 2016
Synopsis from Goodreads:
“Seventy-two hours, then we have to be back at the clearing. Sunrise on the third day.”
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 I’m excited: I’ll start by saying what I said on Goodreads: SCOTLAND AND TIME TRAVEL?? Could there BE a more perfect book for me?
Like, seriously. You guys know how much I love Scotland and any excuse to be that much closer to that country, and I’m all in. But then you add in freaking time travel. AND a medieval world and mysterious boys and mystery and secrets and adventure and history about Scotland and that gorgeous cover, and you pretty much have the definition of the perfect book for Stefani. I NEED it right now! Can’t I time-jump into March 2016?? I know it’s like a million years until release date but I just had to share this one with all of you so you can get excited with me!!
