I won’t post the blurb for you guys as this is the second book in the Alex Wayfare series. I also don’t really know what the title is hinting at – so don’t worry about being spoiled there either (I’m just as clueless as you). I have been waiting FOREVER for the release date of this book. I was so excited when it finally happened. I actually received an ARC (advanced reader’s copy) of the first book, The 57 Lives of Alex Wayfare, and it. was. fabulous.

“For as long as 17-year-old Alex Wayfare can remember, she has had visions of the past. Visions that make her feel like she’s really on a ship bound for America, living in Jamestown during the Starving Time, or riding the original Ferris wheel at the World’s Fair.”

[Goodreads Summary from The 57 Lives of Alex Wayfare]

This series is all about a girl called Alex who has a strange ability that she’s re-learning how to use. To simplify it, she can travel in time . . . in her own time line. She’s had 57 lives and is able to revisit these periods as her past self if need be. Even better? She keeps any cool moves, tricks, or skills that her past selves learn. #LifeGoals. It’s an awesome concept and Buehrlen pulls is off SO well. There was a swapping over of publishing company after the release of the book so that meant two things:

  1. Cover change *much anger*
  2. Delayed publication.

Nonetheless I cannot wait to get my hands on this and read it all up. I highly recommend you check out the first book if you haven’t read it. This is definitely a book I would consider underhyped.
