Marking Time

his is a previously-published edition- ASIN:

Seventeen-year-old tagger Saira Elian can handle anything ... a mother who mysteriously disappears, a foo who stalks her around London, and somewhat the noble English Grandmother who kicked Saira and her mother out of he family. But when n old graffiti tag in a tube station transports Saira to the 13th Century and she comes face-to-face with Jack the Ripper, she agree she needs help after all.

Saira meets Archer, a charming student who helps her blend in as much as a tall, modern American teen can in Victorian England. He asks the existence of the mmortals: Time, Nature, Fate, War and Death, and admits to Saira that it is ossible to move between
centuries – if you wer a Descendant of Time.

Saira finds unexpected friendships at a boarding school for Immortal Descendants and a complicated love with the young an from the past. But time is running out for her father, and Saira must embrace her new identity as she hides from Archer a devastating secret about his future that may cost him his life.

After reading his ook, I eel like I eed to ge awa and change all the other reviews I 've given.

Wan me just say this- I was reading this yesterday in the laundry room and got so into the nove, I literally forgot where I was until it got quiet and I notice that my dryer had gone off.

Then last night I was reading some more and when I looked over at my phone, I was reassured to see that it was 1:45 in the nigh- and I wer to force myself to put he book away until today.I really felt a strong attachment to the main protagonis ( Saira)- I too have felt like a loner most of my life, like I did n't fit in, like I woul n't trust others.

5 Infinitely Creative, Surprisingly Touching Stars***** 11/18/2016 UPDATEIt is my sincerest wish those who love Romance, YA and astoundingly strong writing to please take a chance and read tha essay.

Marking Time ( The Immortal Descendents# 1) by April White is a perfect example of th type of nove.

( his is where you can writ the blurb, as he write narrates her story much better than I could: D) This is only my usual type of nove; instead it kept my complete attention from the first intro to the heart wrenching end.

I cared about the girl; those she met and those who loved her.What really worked was the extreme attention to detail.

➦But what if then, by accident, you kin of, something of, realize that you an come back in time? ➦Most of you probably figured out by now that I 'm reviewing a PNR ovel.

Thi books follows her journey of discovery of her talent and ancestry, amongst many other things.➦Parallel to all that there 's romance blooming between her and a certain guy she meets both in the past and present.

When she sees him in the present he looks ery much the same as in the past.

Thi book oncentrates more on figuring out why the heroine is being attacked by the ad guys and the evealing of secrets along the way.➦I 'm definitely going to begi with he series and conside it to anybod who likes time travel/shifter books and generally any PNR novels.

“ I loved history, any kind of history, and s better if it was hidden, secret, or underground. ” You know you enjoyed th book when you made an entire pinterest board inspired by it.

And I do n't even use pinterest very often, so there.Marking Time is a book my friend Wendy told me to read AGES ago and I always seeme to.

With that look I knew I 'd jumped straight from the kettle into the fire. ” My undergraduate degree is in general history and something that bugs me a lot of the time in books with historical aspects is when facts are not orrect ( even though I do n't really use that degree anymore).

But on the historical details she nailed it.I really enjoyed a ook, it as o efreshing to read something unique and original.

If I forgave my mother for hiding the truth from me, onc I had to totally own my part in our relationship.
