This is a feature started on Breaking the Spine that puts the spotlight on upcoming books.
This week’s pick is:
Release date: March 1st 2016
Goodreads: When fragile, sixteen-year-old Hope Walton loses her mom to an earthquake overseas, her secluded world crumbles. Agreeing to spend the summer in Scotland, Hope discovers that her mother was more than a brilliant academic, but also a member of a secret society of time travelers. Trapped in the twelfth century in the age of Eleanor of Aquitaine, Hope has seventy-two hours to rescue her mother and get back to their own time. Along the way, her path collides with that of a mysterious boy who could be vital to her mission . . . or the key to Hope’s undoing. Addictive, romantic, and rich with historical detail, Into the Dim is an Outlander for teens.
Why I’m excited: Time Travel seems to be the in thing this year, between books and all the TV pilots. I love that it’s set in the 12th century since I haven’t read many, if any, books set around that time period. The Outlander comparison makes me a little nervous because I love Outlander and it immediately sets expectations high but we’ll see.
