Seventeen-year-old Bo has always had delusions that he can travel through time. When he was ten, Bo claimed to have witnessed the Titanic hit an iceberg, and at fifteen, he found himself on a Civil War battlefield, horrified by the bodies surrounding him. So when his concerned parents send him to a school for troubled youth, Bo assumes he knows the truth: that he’s actually attending Berkshire Academy, a school for kids who, like Bo, have “superpowers.”

At Berkshire, Bo falls in love with Sofia, a quiet girl with a tragic past and the superpower of invisibility. Sofia helps Bo open up in a way he never has before. In turn, Bo provides comfort to Sofia, who lost her mother and two sisters at a very young age. 

But even the strength of their love isn’t enough to help Sofia escape her deep depression. After she commits suicide, Bo is convinced that she’s not actually dead. He believes that she’s stuck somewhere in time — that he somehow left her in the past, and now it’s his job to save her. 

[Goodreads summary]

I think this book sounds really intriguing. There are about a million different things that seem to happen in the blurb alone. From a boy who’s sent to a school that he believes is for kids with superpowers to mental health issues, I think it’s going to be an emotional rollercoaster.

I don’t read a heap of contemporary but I almost always enjoy it when I do delve into it (the lack of dragons is often disappointing, though). I love the idea that he believes he can travel in time as he has these “delusions” about having been present at different point in time – it very much so reminds me of The 57 Lives of Alex Wayfare in that sense.

I’m really excited to read this and I hope I’m not too emotionally destroyed after finishing it. I feel like Revis has a lot in store for us!!

    1. Yes! I actually own one of Revis’ other books and I can’t believe I haven’t picked it up yet. I’ve made a pact with myself to read that one first before I try this one. Thanks for linking I’ll be sure to check your’s out.
