The book started off a little slow, but once Casey accidentally brought Nate back to the past, I was hooked. It was wonderfully funny, addicting I read it in two days ya’lland featured a nice cast of characters as well as some more serious sections that made me want to crank clokwise a few history books myself.
CLOCKWISE by Elle Strauss | Kirkus Reviews
I think half the teenagers around will be able to identify with her. I also liked the focus on racism within the time travel, clockwuse how it became a small, but clokwise theme throughout the novel.
Did I think this book was cheesy and cliche? I am glad Nate had the opportunity to travel on a number of occasions with Casey which enabled him to get to know her outside of school, he was quite sweet and supportive of her ability.
This is a great novel for young clockwse. The author turned it into a series, but this first book works fine as a stand-alone read. For instance, my hair is the unmanageable kind of curly, the color of burnt toast. She does spend an inordinate amount of time obsessing over Nate after they travel back in time, but I think I would too, mixed messages and all.
Her voice was exactly right for uncertain but brave Casey. Since Casey basically disappears from one time and blinks into existence in the other, it could be’ve been very hard to follow, but all the time traveling, tracking the past plots and the present plots, was very well done.
Guess you’ll just have to read it, won’t clocwkise
Who knew time travel could be so fun? I was a bit shocked by the ending of the book, but at the same time what do you expect when a guy changes his life for a chance with you But beneath the veneer of an ideal life, her daughter is rebelling, her son is withdrawing, her husband is oblivious to it all, and Suzanne is increasingly unsure of her place in the world. I liked her interactions with the various people in the past, particularly Willie and his family, how she hid her knowledge and stuff from the future, how she survived in the s.
I get that these will probably be discussed in later books, but I don’t really like the abruptness of it all. You will so enjoy this wonderfully quirky Casey and Nate story as they travel into the ‘s and navigate the waters of high school hierarchies.

And Nate goes from a being a normally supportive boyfriend to a more tired version. This is definitely a story for the YA set, with a side helping of high school romance, but if you like that kind of thing it’s worth grabbing while it’s a freebie.
Casey is so funny and likable. There are plenty of twists to keep you into the story and made you continuously wonder what was going to happen next.
But after six years of it happening, Casey is used to it. The main character was supposed to be clever and quick on her feet but she often proved to be the exact opposite.
