In her debut novel, Shanna Miles creates a masterful blend of genres in an epic YA romance. Historical fiction, sci-fi, fantasy and romance? It's all there. Fayard and Tamar, two South Carolina teens, share a connection bigger than your average short-lived teenage love story. Rather it's the kind of love that is rarely found; enduring, gentle and true. The catch, they have been reliving their story over and over throughout time, always with a tragic ending. In order to break the cycle they must learn from their past and make decisions about their future, one without memories to guide them. I would have read an entire book about each telling of Fayard and Tamar's love story. Every memory was vivid, compelling and original. I could not put this book down.
