Hourglass (Hourglass #1)

Title: Hourglass (Hourglass# 1)
Author: Myra McEntire
Rating: 4.5/5
SummaryOne hour to rewrite the past . . . 
For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn’t there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents’ death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She’s tried everything, but the visions keep coming back.
So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson’s willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may change her past.
Who is this dark, mysterious, sympathetic guy, barely older than Emerson herself, who seems to believe every crazy word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he’s around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should have happened?
Full of atmosphere, mystery, and romance, Hourglass merges the very best of the paranormal and science-fiction genres in a seductive, remarkable young adult debut.
My Thoughts: This book rocked. That is it. If you have eyes read it. If you cant read get someone to read it for you because you just don't want to let this one pass you by. I love it. Period. The main character is on the Kick Butt Chicks League accompanied by ladies non other than Katniss Everdeen (Hunger Games), Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy), and Cat (The Night Huntress Series). She is quick, she is witty, she is phenomenal. Even if the entire plot were to suck (which it didn't) I would still read it because of her. That's how serious I'm about this girl. Shes got spunk!  Just as an Hourglass represents the flow of time, the author represents the fresh new read this genre was needing! After all the supernatural creatures that are done over and over again, the author has now sucked me into the vacuum of time travel! If you only pick up one new author to read this year, be sure to make it this book! If not, we might have to travel back and change your mind and reality!
