Waking in Time

Still mourning the loss of her beloved grandmother and shaken by her mysterious, dying request to “find the baby,” Abbi has just arrived at UW Madison for her freshman year. But on her second day, she wakes up to a different world: 1983. That is just the first stop on Abbi’s journey backward through time. Will is a charming college freshman from 1927 who travels forward through time. When Abbi and Will meet in the middle, love adds another complication to their lives. Communicating across time through a buried time capsule, they try to decode the mystery of their travel, find the lost baby, and plead with their champion, a kindly physics professor, to help them find each other again... even though the professor gets younger each time Abbi meets him. This page-turning story full of romance, twists, and delightful details about campus life then and now will stay with readers long after the book’s satisfying end.

School Library Journal - Nora G. Murphy, Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy, LaCanada-Flintridge, CA

"Stanton delivers a delightful time-travel romance in this tale of Abbi and Will, two Midwestern college students hurtling through the 20th century in opposite directions. . . . The romance is believable, the time-travel mechanism is complex, and the ending...[is] quite satisfying. This well-constructed narrative reads like Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife for a teen audience. Recommended for all YA collections." - School Library Journal

VOYA - Etienne Vallée

"STARRED REVIEW!  Stanton creates an intricate and well-crafted tale with the added twist of a second time traveler moving in the opposite direction. . . .Enough hints are present throughout the story to suggest what will occur, but it remains filled with mysteries and revelations that will surprise the reader. Fans of Kierstin Gier’s Ruby Red trilogy and of time travel will enjoy Abbi’s travels." - VOYA
