Your Life Has Been Delayed by Michelle I. Mason is one of these lovely time slip/time travel books that I just can’t get enough of – which means I am extra excited for another one!

Could you imagine within a blink of a few hours on a plane and you time traveled? A lot going on in this debut YA that is landing on bookshelves August 24th!

Past and present collide in a captivating YA debut about a girl who takes off on a flight and lands . . . twenty-five years later.
When Jenny boards her flight back from New York, the biggest things on her mind are applying to Columbia and reuniting with her brand-new boyfriend. But when she and the other passengers disembark in St. Louis, they're told that their plane disappeared-twenty-five years ago. Everyone thought they were dead.
The world has fast-forwarded. Three of her grandparents are gone, her parents are old, and her "little" brother is now an adult. There's so much she's missed out on, not the least iPhones, social media, and pop culture. When some surprising information comes to light, Jenny feels betrayed by her family and once-best friend. She's also fighting her attraction to Dylan, a cute and kind classmate who has an unusual connection to her past. And then there's the growing contingent of conspiracy theorists determined to prove that Flight 237 hides a sinister truth. Will Jenny figure out how to move forward, or will she always be stuck in the past?
Debut author Michelle I. Mason offers a smart and funny high-concept debut about the most unbelievable of life changes-and the parts of yourself that can always stay the same.
