Overview

2013 Winner--Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award--Grand Prize and Young Adult Fiction Winner

When Kate Pierce-Keller's grandmother gives her a strange blue medallion and speaks of time travel, sixteen-year-old Kate assumes the old woman is delusional. But it all becomes horrifyingly real when a murder in the past destroys the foundation of Kate's present-day life. Suddenly, that medallion is the only thing protecting Kate from blinking out of existence.

Kate learns that the 1893 killing is part of something much more sinister, and her genetic ability to time travel makes Kate the only one who can fix the future. Risking everything, she travels back in time to the Chicago World's Fair to try to prevent the murder and the chain of events that follows.

Changing the timeline comes with a personal cost--if Kate succeeds, the boy she loves will have no memory of her existence. And regardless of her motives, does Kate have the right to manipulate the fate of the entire world?

Publisher's Note: Timebound was originally released as Time's Twisted Arrow.

In this time-travel adventure, which won the 2013 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award in the YA category, Walker delivers a solid, leisurely paced tale that mixes romance with temporal intrigue. Kate Pierce-Keller is stunned when her formerly estranged grandmother tells her about a secret family history involving time travel and a conspiracy by a rogue scholar from the future to rewrite society through the use of retroactively inserted religion. When history alters, and Kate's family is lost, only she remains to travel back to the 1893 World's Fair and prevent the murder that changed everything. Walker has clearly thought through the complicated layers of world-building and temporal hijinks, keeping the story's multiple strands from getting too tangled. Kate is a strong, memorable protagonist, and her romance with Trey, the boy she meets in an altered timeline, is sweet and believable. However, the plot simmers for much of the book, heavy with infodumps, informed backstory, and little progress. The dense mythology seeks to pack more than necessary into an already crowded narrative, leading to an imbalanced, though entertaining story. Ages 12–up. (Dec.)
