What would you change?

Imprisoned in the heart of a secret military base, Em has nothing except the voice of the boy in the cell next door and the list of instructions she finds taped inside the drain.

Only Em can complete the final instruction. She’s tried everything to prevent the creation of a time machine that will tear the world apart. She holds the proof: a list she has never seen before, written in her own hand. Each failed attempt in the past has led her to the same terrible present—imprisoned and tortured by a sadistic man called the doctor while war rages outside.

Marina has loved her best friend, James, since they were children. A gorgeous, introverted science prodigy from one of America’s most famous families, James finally seems to be seeing Marina in a new way, too. But on one disastrous night, James’s life crumbles, and with it, Marina’s hopes for their future. Marina will protect James, no matter what. Even if it means opening her eyes to a truth so terrible that she may not survive it... at least, not as the girl she once was. Em and Marina are in a race against time that only one of them can win.

All Our Yesterdays is a wrenching, brilliantly plotted story of fierce love, unthinkable sacrifice, and the infinite implications of our every choice.
My very first time travel book and I absolutely love and enjoyed it! Now I didn't now this was a time travel book I actually went into this book blind, because I saw so much great reviews about it that I had too check it out from the library too see if I like it or not. Plus I've been wanting too check out this book out years ago since I first heard about it but I totally forget what this book was about. But Ohh boy I am so glad and happy that I did check it out from the library because I couldn't put this book down at all I was very intrigued from the very beginning too the very end. That I actually finished this book in two days yes it was that amazing too me. I absolutely love everything about it the plot and concept was very new and unique too me like I said this was my very first time travel book but it won't be my last. I will most definitely continue on reading more time travel books in the near feature. Because time travel books are always a refreshing book too read and I really love the idea about Time Traveling in books. The writing style was very expository and persuasive especially when there were telling about the time machine Cassandra and how the world change because of Cassandra. I absolutely love the tiny facts we see in the books about how the world changed for the worst because of Cassandra. The characters were absolutely well developed, fantastic and some of them down right scary, especially the evil genius doctor and his hitch men's they were just pure cold hearted and evil! But all and all I really loved and enjoyed All Our Yesterday and I most definitely will keep an eye out and check out more books by Cristin Terrill!
