Abbi is so excited to start at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in honour of her beloved Grandmother. Three days in, she wakes up in her own bed in her own room but with a new roommate and absolutely no idea of why she is now in 1983. Why is Abbi going back in time? Does it have to do with the mystery “baby” grandma mentioned? And if so, how on earth will she ever get back again?
This is a very easy novel to read and doesn’t really involve too much thinking. The characters of Abbi, Will and Smitty and fun but one doesn’t have time to become involved with any of the supporting cast as, as soon as Abbi meets them, she is on her way again. I have not read the other “time travelling” novels and do not know if this can be overcome in some way, but it does mean that most of the action centres on the same people and places and I think the author may have needed to take a bit more care that this was not too repetitive and that the reader, let alone Abbi herself, had time to get things straight before the action moved ahead.
This aside, this was definitely an enjoyable book as a light read and I am sure it will appeal to a range of readers of varying ages.
