It's time for "Waiting On" Wednesday! This is a feature begun by Breaking the Spine, in which bloggers share an upcoming book about which they are very excited. So here's the next yet-to-be-published YA or MG novel from the top of my TBR list!
Releases 2 May 2017 from Sky Pony Press
Kale Jackson has spent years trying to control his time-traveling ability, but hasn’t had much luck. One day he lives in 1945, fighting in the war as a sharpshooter and helplessly watching soldiers—friends—die. Then the next day, he’s back in the present, where WWII has bled into his modern life in the form of PTSD. Every day it becomes harder to hide his battle wounds, both physical and mental.
When Harper moves back to town, Kale is haunted by thoughts of what could be if only he had a normal life. Harper reminds him of who he was before the PTSD, which helps anchor him to the present. With practice, maybe Kale could remain in the present permanently and never step foot on a battlefield again. Maybe he could have the normal life he craves.
Then Harper finds Kale’s name in a historical article—and he’s listed as a casualty of the war. Kale must learn to control his time-traveling ability in order to save himself and his chance at a life with Harper. Otherwise, he’ll be killed in a time where he doesn’t belong by a bullet that was never meant for him.
