Nothing is simple in fifteen-year-old Casey’s life. She has two families and two houses and two rooms of her own. Sometimes this makes her feel lucky, but other times she feels practically homeless. She also has a brother with Asperger’s. He’s interesting to have around, and she loves him very much, but he’s also complicated.
And speaking of complicated, Casey discovers she's a time traveler.
She’ll be doing her Algebra homework, or on her way to work at the restaurant, when suddenly she’s in some other time and place, in some other body, and she’s supposed to do something. Help somebody. Fix some problem. But how?

I received this book from the publishers via Netgalley for a review. A great short novel about time travel. Read this in one sitting.
Really enjoyed this book from Melanie Tem. I've read her before, years ago, and just as good as I remembered. A kind of mismatch of genres, with elements of science fiction and horror. Will need to re-read some of her earlier work. #Absence #NetGalley
I'm a big fan of time travel stories, and this short book is a fun one that blends horror, scifi, YA and urban fantasy. A quick, well-written read.
I found this one to be a short but important story, with a time travel twist.
I enjoyed how the author indicates to the reader to think about the inequalities that were faced with, such as with slavery. It was a little confusing to join the dots at times, but it was an interesting read for what it was worth.
