Teen Review: Tempest by Julie Cross

My name is Jenna. I go to a high school where I’m part of the marching band and the cheerleading squad. I’m pretty busy, but I always find time to read. I’m also very creative and I like doing little crafts out of random things I find.

Tempest by Julie Cross

Jackson seems like a normal guy on the outside. He is a college student, volunteers, and has a wonderful girlfriend. But in reality, he is holding a very interesting secret. He can time travel, or rather, perform time jumps. He can go back and forth to different years, without any consequences except sickness.

The present year, otherwise known as the home base year, is 2009. The only person that knows about Jackson’s time traveling is his best friend, Adam. Adam and Jackson perform experiments to try and fully grasp how powerful this time traveling is.

When visiting his girlfriend, Holly, at her college dorm room, strange men bombarded the two and Holly was fatally shot. On instinct, Jackson time jumped. This time, he couldn’t get back to 2009.

Jackson ended up in 2007, two years before meeting Holly, and now he doesn’t know how to get back to 2009 or what is going to happen to Holly.

With nothing else to do, Jackson starts to search for answers. He finds out a whole different side of his father that he never knew, and he decides that he wants to meet the 2007 Holly and Adam. Jackson opens up a whole new level of dark secrets about his abilities, and once he learns about them, he can’t go back.

This novel was interesting and the main character Jackson was extremely lovable and readers will admire him for all of his brave decisions. The time travel talk could get confusing at times, but the time travel that Julie Cross invented is very interesting and unique. This novel is a page-turner… a very suspenseful and gripping story.
