Henry Holt, 2012. 362 pgs. Young Adult
Gwen's life has been flipped upside down since it turned out that she, and not her cousin Charlotte, was the gene carrier for the time traveling gene. The secret society that protects the secret of the time travel is out to gather the blood of all the time travelers in history but they don't trust fully trust Gwen so they are selective in what they tell her, leaving her trying to piece things together on her own. The fact that her time traveling companion, the incredibly good-looking Gideon, wants to kiss her one day and then barely speaks to her the next, makes things all the more complicated. Not knowing who she can trust, Gwen is desperate to find out what is really going on and who is telling her the truth.
The second book in the Ruby Red series will be gobbled up by teen readers. Readers who loved the first book will be excited to see the developing romance in the second, and although Geir doesn't give many answers in this book, it does set things up nicely for the third book. This is a fun series, and I can't wait for the next installment.
