"Sneaks" by B. Button

My Book Summary : Kally just turned sixteen-years-old and is from the year 2184. Where she is from it's a dreary time for everyone. Growing up guys and girls are meant to be separated up until their 18th birthday, which is when they get the choice to either marry someone who is selected for them (which could end up being an older person who was either preciously widowed or divorced) or end up single with a lousy job position. Kally would rather be single but with the way, the economy is she may not be given a choice. However, since she's only sixteen, for the moment, she wants to avoid the "BIG DECISION" at all costs and she's almost positive she never wants to get married.

On her 16th birthday she is fixing a clock, something that is found illegal by her government, and finds a necklace that has a pendent of a globe showing the "old world" on it. As jewelry is illegal as well, during her time, she decides to try it on, as she wouldn't normally get the chance, and finds herself being shoved to somewhere else---18th Century Scotland.

Once there she finds people who become her first friends that she's ever had, along with some young love along the way. However, there is someone who seems to be trying everything to keep her out of that time period and although she finds she really, likes being there she does miss her mother. Will Kally decide to go back home and stay there or will fate decide for her??

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars!! This story was a bit confusing at times but with the way the storyline flows and since it's only from Kally's POV it's supposed to be, making this story one that creates you to feel the way she does about the issues going on around her. The storyline in this book is really entertaining and creative in the way the necklace is used, all of the rules that go along with it, and how Kally tries to deal with the changes going on around her. Plus --- the characters are great!! There are some who you can never get a good feel on until the book is about 75% of the way through but it's that more interesting because of it!

I recommend this book to all those who like YA and time travel books!!!

Side Note :: Now that I think of it when I read the title of this book again, "Sneaks," I can't stop but think of the sneakers that Kally couldn't stop wearing. *hehee*

Book Teaser(s) :
Teaser #1
“Kally, I’ll apologize to ye now for my behavior.”
I wanted to ask which behavior he meant – the ride on the horse the day before or his sourness out on the hillside – but I still didn’t trust my voice. Plus, an apology was an apology. I nodded again. “Thank . . .” I coughed. How was he breathing so well?
“Aye. Weel, when ye’re feeling better, we’ll start over, and I’ll attempt to show ye that I can be something other than a horse’s arse.”
I huffed a laugh and then coughed, but this time with less body wracking violence.
“Perhaps ye were destined to save me, Kally Bright, from faraway,” he said.
“I don’t think I saved you.”
“Aye,” he said thoughtfully. ~ within the story as there isn't any chapters
