A quirky YA book about finding love in unexpected places. I thought that the story had potentinal, but I don’t think that the author did enough to develop it. It’s a story of a girl (Laney) who accidentally stumbles into the past thru a doorway in her closet, only to meet, well spy on, the love of her life (Samuel), after having just literally watched her best friend have a love at first site moment. There a few instances of her watching him, some clandestine communication via a notebook, and BOOM they are in love, and she’s bringing him to live the rest of his life in the future. I found the transition for Samuel to be unbelievable, he’s too accepting of modern technology., and yet freaked out by the forwardness of the modern woman. I didn’t hate the book, and it was an easy read, I just thought that the plot moved a little too quickly. 3 stars for a good try.
