The year is 2009. Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy… he’s in college, has a girlfriend… and he can travel back through time. But it’s not like the movies—nothing changes in the present after his jumps, there’s no space-time continuum issues or broken flux capacitors—it’s just harmless fun.
That is… until the day strangers burst in on Jackson and his girlfriend, Holly, and during a struggle with Jackson, Holly is fatally shot. In his panic, Jackson jumps back two years to 2007, but this is not like his previous time jumps. Now he’s stuck in 2007 and can’t get back to the future.
Desperate to somehow return to 2009 to save Holly but unable to return to his rightful year, Jackson settles into 2007 and learns what he can about his abilities.
But it’s not long before the people who shot Holly in 2009 come looking for Jackson in the past, and these “Enemies of Time” will stop at nothing to recruit this powerful young time-traveler. Recruit… or kill him.
Piecing together the clues about his father, the Enemies of Time, and himself, Jackson must decide how far he’s willing to go to save Holly… and possibly the entire world.
My Review: Jackson Meyer is living in the year 2009. Jackson seems like a normal teenager except that he can time travel. Jackson can only travel back a few days at most, and can’t travel to the future beyond what he’s already lived. Jackson thinks this is a harmless pursuit until two mysterious people show up in Holly’s dorm room to talk to him. But instead of talking a fight broke out and one of the men shot Holly. Now Jackson must got back in time to stop this from happening, only problem is he accidently went back too far and can't got back to 2009. Now Jackson must relive some past and face something he never though would happen. Ill tell you this book has more than you think.
