Passenger by Alexandra Bracken
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Etta Spencer has focused her entire short life on becoming a great violinist. When after a strange experience playing her beloved instrument she finds herself in a time not her own, she must face people who know about a truth that has been kept hidden from her. The only family she has ever known has been her mother; now she has an inherited legacy thrust on her and she must decide quickly which side of the drama she wants to be on. Can the coded letters left by her mother explain the truth that has been concealed from her? Can her mind and body adjust to constantly traveling to the different time periods required to uncover the answers?
Passenger is the first book of a time traveling historical fiction series by the same name. Bracken has created a storyline and characters that readers will quickly make connections with and as readers spend time with this adventure it will seem as if the pages are turning themselves. Readers will find action, adventure, romance and history so closely intertwined that it is really hard to decide what genre this book should be labeled. The book not only spans many genres, it will appeal to many types of readers and should be added to everyone’s “to read” list.
