Young Adult Sci-Fi

Save the girl.
Save the day.
The mission sounds easy enough, but it is anything but easy for Parker Jenkins. Yesterday, ordinary, poverty-stricken Parker was an ordinary high school kid, getting bullied relentlessly and trying to get by. Today, he’s a time traveler with gifted powers expected to carry out the extraordinary. Teaming up with another time traveler, Scarlet, they must save an innocent girl on the run before the villains kill them all. If they don’t, their present-day selves will die. But can the ordinary perform the extraordinary?
HJ Lawson is an English author who currently resides in New York. When she’s not writing, she spends her watching movies and hanging out with her family. She is the author of the following young adult books: The War Kids Series and The Sanction Series.
Parker is the typical outcast in high school. He finds himself the target of the jock Travis and pining for Travis’ girlfriend doesn’t help matters. He also has a hard home life. His mother has become bitter after the loss of Parker’s father and his step father is abusive. But one night when he goes to sleep he wakes up in Tokyo. He thinks he is dreaming although Scarlet insists that he is a time traveler and he has a job to do. It is up to Parker and Scarlet to save a little girl.
You can’t help but feel bad for Parker. He just seems to stand out enough in life to be everyone’s punching bag. But he is a good kid that suddenly finds himself in Tokyo being told he is a time traveler and is supposed to save a little girl. I don’t blame him for asking 101 questions, I would be doing the same thing. But he does get going and with the help of Scarlet saves Tora.
This is a great story with lots of actions and fantastic characters. I really liked how the paradox of trying to save his father comes into play. I easily got sucked into this story and couldn’t wait to see how it ended. Of course, cliff hanger which means I can’t wait for the second book.
