Review: Glitch by Brenda Pandos

Glitch (Lost in Time series Book 1) by Brenda Pandos 
Genre: YA Paranormal

Synopsis: 

Blue Eyes and his illegal slip of paper are about to shatter Abby's perfect world.
When a mysterious guy from the forbidden zone sneaks a note to a beautiful young girl from Brighton, she must decide if she should turn him in or follow what the note says.
Eighteen-year-old Abby has no trouble following Brighton's rules. For one, she's OCD about checking her Date of Death clock latched to her wrist, making sure her decisions never shorten her lifetime, and two, she enjoys the peace Brighton has to offer. But when her best friend returns from her Advice Meeting--a glimpse into the future--shell shocked and won't tell Abby what's happened, she's worried what awaits her when she experiences her glimpse in a few days. The stranger with blue eyes warned her not to go, but does Abby dare enter the forbidden zone to get answers? Or is she doomed to live the life her glimpse is about to show her?

First, let me just say that time travel is kind of a big deal for me. It's probably my most favorite sci-fi subject. As such, I tend to be extremely critical of any inconsistencies, nitpicking every little thing. I can't even begin to tell you how many heated debates I've gotten into on this subject.

So, with that in mind, I want to share my review of Glitch by Brenda Pandos.

Admittedly, I was a teeny bit skeptical once I found out that time travel was part of the story, but I've absolutely loved every other word Brenda has ever published, so I made a deal with myself to reserve all judgment until I was done with the book. I was NOT disappointed!! This book was awesome!!!

In typical Brenda Pandos fashion, Glitch is an extremely well written story. Character development is great, detailed, and the characters were so relatable! The story was so ridiculously fantastic that IF there were any major inconsistencies, I didn't even notice them! Anything that might have caused any major inconsistencies in the time line, she didn't just ignore and hope noone would notice. She had an explanation for everything and I can't lie, I was really impressed. The only thing that drove me crazy was the cliffhanger at the end!!!

It's so hard to get into too much detail without giving away any spoilers so I'll just say this: 5 hearts! I loved this book and I can't wait for the next book in this series!!
