This was interesting. I like time travel books, and those that are historical are even better. The main characters, Sophie and Jamie, end up near Gettysburg near the time of the big battle. The only weird part was the guy from the future, who was out to kill Sophie -- I'm not sure that was totally explained. But the ending was good. Will have to find more books in the series...and then find the time to read them!!
Just finished this. Interesting in that it deals with familial abuse -- father was a drinker/alcoholic/gambler who beat his wife, then disappeared. When he reappeared he abused his older daughter, then used her as payment in a card game. It was good to see how she managed to survive and thrive -- very creatively!
Interesting story about undercover FBI 'operation' at a suburban high school. They are trying to thwart a potential tragedy from happening, based on suicide notes left by a student a few months earlier. Good story.
