Clockwise - Elle Strauss Clockwise is one of the more fun, and cute reads that I have come across in a while. As most of you know, I am a fan of the dramatic young adult novel, wrought with passion and danger and all those kind of things. Clockwise was like a breath of fresh air.

A time travelling fifteen year old, in love with the sports star of her school (who also happens to be taken by the head cheerleader), accidentally brings him back in time with her. And not only once.

It just sounds like fun, right? And it was. Strauss has written Clockwise in a way that is light-hearted, and yet not silly. Fun, but not dumb. I just really enjoyed reading this novel.

The characters aren’t too intense, and you’re not completely invested in them as you sometimes are about characters you read about. However, I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Casey (the main character), and her travels back in time to 1861. Her interactions with the people there were interesting to read.

I was never bored once with Clockwise, and found myself a little disappointed when it ended. The ending held a really sweet surprise for readers, and I found myself smiling along with Casey at the discovery. It was really quite adorable.

I am really interested as to how the series is furthered, and am most definitely going to continue to read about Casey, and her antics in the past.

The story of Clockwise was light and interesting, and I would recommend it to you if you are caught between books, and looking for a sweet, fun read to tide you over.
