Books On Our Radar: Into the Dim by Janet B. Taylor
I’ve been sucked into the Outlander TV series so time traveling and hot scotsmen are kind of my jam right now, so when I stumbled upon this amazing YA that’s touting itself as “Outlander for teens” I was immediately intrigued! Unfortunately, we don’t have a time traveling stone to take us to March 1, 2016, when this one releases, so be sure to add it to your TBR today.
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 anOutlander for teens.
“Instantly engaging, constantly suspenseful, ultimately poignant and satisfying” –DIANA GABALDON, author of OUTLANDER
