Clockwork by Elle Strauss

Synopsis ( Casey Donovan has issues: hair, height and uncontrollable trips to the 19th century! And now this—she’s accidentally taken Nate Mackenzie, the cutest boy in the school, back in time. Awkward.Protocol pressures her to tell their 1860 hosts that he is her brother and when Casey finds she has a handsome, wealthy (and unwanted) suitor, something changes in Nate. Are those romantic sparks or is it just “brotherly” protectiveness?When they return to the present, things go back to the way they were before: Casey parked on the bottom of the rung of the social ladder and Nate perched high on the very the top. Except this time her heart is broken. Plus, her best friend is mad, her parents are split up, and her younger brother gets escorted home by the police. The only thing that could make life worse is if, by some strange twist of fate, she took Nate back to the past again.Which of course, she does.
Christina's Review: I think this was a fun and quick read. It is interesting and entertaining. The characters are fun and the storyline was never boring! I liked it so much I bought the second one as well! I like that the main character, Casey, is not the most popular girl at school and that she is a wallflower. . . I related to that. If you are looking for something quick yet entertaining I would recommend this book.

I enjoyed this one, too. Have you read the others? I didn't really care for them as much.
