Mini Review: Hourglass by Myra McEntire

Hourglass by Myra McEntire
Publisher: EgomontUSA (May 8, 2012)
Length: 416 pages
Format: Hardcover

Summary from Amazon: 
One hour to rewrite the past . . . 
For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn’t there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents’ death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She’s tried everything, but the visions keep coming back.

So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson’s willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may change her past.
Who is this dark, mysterious, sympathetic guy, barely older than Emerson herself, who seems to believe every crazy word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he’s around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should have happened?

Full of atmosphere, mystery, and romance, Hourglass merges the very best of the paranormal and science-fiction genres in a seductive, remarkable young adult debut.

I found this book really interesting. It wasn't like any other time travel books I have read. It is a whole new twist to time travel. I thought that Emerson being able to see rips (imprints of the past) was really cool. She could see some of the past in the present. I thought that it was great that after spending so long trying to find a place she belongs, she finds one. I can't stand that Micheal was all sweet and into her one moment then remembers that he can't so he backs off. I mean yeah he had his reasons but it was still annoying. If you are into a girl be with the girl, don't play games!
Overall, I liked it.  3.5/5 stars.
