(Description from the back of the book)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.
If you don't already know, today is the day that the book Hourglass by Myra McEntire was released. (Congratulations, Myra, my fellow Tennessean). Today other author's and reader blogs and websites have been in a frenzy about how amazing the book is. I wish I could state my opinion, but I can't to that yet. I don't happen to have it yet, but it's certainly on my "To Read List".
....I need a library card.
For reviews, here are some great websites to check out what other readers had to say:
