9780062123923: Erasing Time

When twins Sheridan and Taylor wake up 400 years in the future, they find a changed world: domed cities, no animals, and a language that's so different, it barely sounds like English. And the worst news: They can't go back home.

The twenty-fifth-century government transported the girls to their city hoping to find a famous scientist to help perfect a devastating new weapon. The same government has implanted tracking devices in the citizens, limiting and examining everything they do. Taylor and Sheridan have to find a way out of the city before the government discovers their secrets. To complicate matters, the moblike Dakine has interest in getting hold of them too. The only way for the girls to elude their pursuers is to put their trust in Echo, a guy with secrets of his own. The trio must put their faith in the unknown to make a harrowing escape into the wilds beyond the city.

Full of adrenaline-injected chases and heartbreaking confessions, Erasing Time explores the strength of the bonds between twins, the risks and rewards of trust, and the hard road to finding the courage to fight for what you believe in.

About the Author:

C. J. Hill is the mother of twins. They aren't identical, but this doesn't mean she always calls them by the right name. In fact, she occasionally calls all her children by the wrong names (she has five) and has even been known to throw the dog's name into the mix. Laugh now, but you'll do the same thing when you have kids.

If C. J. had a time machine and could visit another century, she would probably go to the Regency era instead of the future. According to all the novels she's read, the past was filled with a multitude of dashing lords and viscounts who were always on the lookout for damsels in distress, whereas the future is populated by scary dystopian societies.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 7 Up-Twins Sheridan and Taylor are snatched from their comfortable home and dragged 400 years into the future by scientists with dubious intentions and a time machine. While the science strains credulity, it's really just a device to set the twins up in the future. Present at their arrival is historian and wordsmith Echo, charged with acting as translator and then babysitter when the scientists realize that the girls are not the groundbreaking scientist whom they intended to pull forward. The future is both too comfortable, breeding a clueless citizenry oblivious to the rampant pollution and lawlessness outside their domed cities, and slightly menacing. Silly fashions and frivolity mask a society riddled with corruption and a Big Brother state that has outlawed religion of any kind. In order to escape a mind wipe, the siblings enlist the help of Echo, who has connections with the mafialike Dakine, and the "doctors" who are the underground preservers of religion that conduct like-minded believers out of the city to a safe haven. The twins' use of idiom as a means of secret communication is amusing, and the gentle romance between Echo and Sheridan will attract some readers, but the strong religious themes make this book a better choice for readers of Christian fiction looking for something with a sci-fi twist.-Caroline Tesauro, Radford Public Library, VAα(c) Copyright 2011.
