All Our Yesterdays (All Our Yesterdays #1) by Cristin Terrill (*)

Genre; Y/A , Science Fiction
Release date; September 3rd 2013
"You have to kill him." Imprisoned in the heart of a secret military base, Em has nothing except the voice of the boy in the cell next door and the list of instructions she finds taped inside the drain.

Only Em can complete the final instruction. She’s tried everything to prevent the creation of a time machine that will tear the world apart. She holds the proof: a list she has never seen before, written in her own hand. Each failed attempt in the past has led her to the same terrible present—imprisoned and tortured by a sadistic man called the doctor while war rages outside.

Marina has loved her best friend James since the day he moved next door when they were children. A gorgeous, introverted science prodigy from one of America’s most famous families, James finally seems to be seeing Marina in a new way, too. But on one disastrous night, James’s life crumbles apart, and with it, Marina’s hopes for their future. Now someone is trying to kill him. Marina will protect James, no matter what. Even if it means opening her eyes to a truth so terrible that she may not survive it. At least not as the girl she once was.

All Our Yesterdays is a wrenching, brilliantly plotted story of fierce love, unthinkable sacrifice, and the infinite implications of our every choice.
I read a few reviews that contained spoilers before i started it which did slightly effect my view, so firstly dont do that. On face value this is a novel about time travel and the implications it has on the world, but delve deeper and we see a true love story amongst the characters. We quickly learn whatever happenend in the past has deeply impacted the future, although it is not clear why, this is obviously the main story. For me, as a reader who loves chick lit, i much preferred the relationships between the characters. They were all so well written and i felt myself gripped into the story straight away. It isn't too heavy which i thought it would be seen as it is based on time travel and i think thats where i went wrong. So please take head, this is a wonderful book!
Rating; 9/10
