Publisher's Summary

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.
It's the eve of the American Civil War, and protocol pressures Casey to tell their hosts that Nate is her brother. No one is more surprised than she is when they are forced to share a one-room workers' cabin. Super awkward. Nate's slow to accept their new reality, but when he does he realizes he needs Casey to get back. His nearness is intoxicating to Casey, but she keeps her cool by hanging a privacy blanket and staying aloof. Knowing Nate has an evil girlfriend waiting for him at home helps.
Over time Casey gains the attention of a handsome, wealthy (and unwanted) suitor, and something changes in Nate. Are those romantic sparks, or is it just protectiveness?
When they return to the present, things go back to the way they were before: Casey parked on the bottom rung of their school's social ladder and Nate perched high on the very 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....
The Clockwise Collection is light science-fiction (historical) time travel with a nice splash of young adult romance!

Fun story, Perfect Narration

What did you love best about Clockwise?

I adored how the narrator embodied everything the author said about the main character, Casey. Casey is supposed to be tall and slightly awkward and the narrator nailed it. She had a tomboy edge to her voice somehow. It worked perfectly. I can't imagine a better voice for this story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Casey was defiantly my favorite. She isn't your typical heroine. She has spunk,is unsure of herself, is tall and awkward, but she is feels real and is fiercely loyal. She is someone I'd want for a friend, even if she did randomly catapult me back in time.

Which character – as performed by Andrea Emmes – was your favorite?

Again, Casey. Her voice was exactly right for uncertain but brave Casey.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I had several moments that moved me. I don't want to say to much... (Spoilers!) so I'll keep it vague but I loved the part when Nate first goes back in time. His reaction was priceless and the ending was a perfect twist.

Any additional comments?

Clockwise is the story of Casey, who seems like an ordinary girl, except that she randomly travels back in time. This makes life, interesting. Interesting almost turns into disastrous when Casey accidentally brings the boy she has a crush on back in time with her. It is a fun story and I'd say it's geared for younger teens but I'm completely grown up and I enjoyed it. The blend of history and time travel paired with Casey's personal growth made it pleasant entertainment.

I received a copy of this audiobook from the author in exchange for my review.
