CAN'T WAIT TO READ: Future Shock by Elizabeth Briggs

Release date: April 1st 2016
Publisher: Albert Whitman & Company
Purchase: Amazon

Synopsis via Goodreads:
Elena Martinez has hidden her eidetic memory all her life--or so she thinks. When powerful tech giant Aether Corporation selects her for a top-secret project, she can't say no. All she has to do is participate in a trip to the future to bring back data, and she'll be set for life.

Elena joins a team of four other teens with special skills, including Adam, a science prodigy with his own reason for being there. But when the time travelers arrive in the future, something goes wrong and they break the only rule they were given: do not look into their own fates.

Now they have twenty-four hours to get back to the present and find a way to stop a seemingly inevitable future from unfolding. With time running out and deadly secrets uncovered, Elena must use her eidetic memory, street smarts, and a growing trust in Adam to save her new friends and herself.

  1. AWESOME, AWESOME PICK!!!! I ADORE time travel fiction, and this one sure looks like it will be a really WILD ride!! I have already added it to my Goodreads shelves, and will now move on to Amazon, to add it to my SF wish list! (I have 53 separate wish lists on Amazon, mostly full of books. Lol.)

    You know, I have seen a nonfiction book with this same title, in used bookstores. It was written back in the '70s, by someone named Alvin Toffler. Maybe next time I go by one of these bookstores, I'll pick it up. What a coincidence, right?

    Thanks for sharing, and Happy New Year!! : )
