Book Review: Tempest By Julie Cross

Name: Tempest
Author: Julie Cross
UK publisher: MacMillan
UK Release date: 5th January
Summary: The year is 2009.  Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy… he’s in college, has a girlfriend… and he can travel back through time. But it’s not like the movies – nothing changes in the present after his jumps, there’s no space-time continuum issues or broken flux capacitors – it’s just harmless fun.

That is… until the day strangers burst in on Jackson and his girlfriend, Holly, and during a struggle with Jackson, Holly is fatally shot. In his panic, Jackson jumps back two years to 2007, but this is not like his previous time jumps. Now he’s stuck in 2007 and can’t get back to the future.

Review: Time travel, Boys POV, action, sexy, shocking, exciting moments and so much more in this amazing entrancing, descriptive, witty... fascinating, memorable, read.

Where do I start? How about the fact that this book was written by a a women and its all in a boys POV. That's not even the best part! The best part is how realistic and not at all relatable to a girls POV. Sometimes when reading YA that's Written by a women in a Boys pov you literally forget he's a boy and he sounds like a women but this was nothing like it, which was amazing and so refreshing!

Also I wanted to talk about the plot! Time travel! Theirs not many YA time travel books out there and Tempest has set the bar so high now. It was so addicting and I found myself mesmerised from beginning to end. This book is defiantly for boys and girls! Its not to girly and not to masculine! Its slap bang right in the middle which I think is perfect! 415 pages of awesome perfection!

I love all the characters their not at all 2 dimensional! They jump out in your imagine nation attentively that you can't help but fall in love with them all (even the baddies). Jackson oh Jacksonnnnn the heartbreaking hero of the novel. His bravery, good looks, witty self makes this book what it is!

Then there is Holly. She's such a beautiful character that a lot of us girls will relate to in more ways than one. Then Adam! The awesome good friend of Jackson who is a total awesome nerd who is just as brave as Jackson and is a loveable interesting character!

Guys seriously next time you are in your book store you need to pick up this novel! I can't explain how much you should read it! Its nice and refreshing from the YA I've read and has a very shocking ending! Enjoy :)
