Casey Donovan has issues: hair, height and uncontrollable trips to the 19th century! And now this—she’s accidentally taken Nate Mackenzie, the cutest boy in the school, back in time. Awkward.

Protocol pressures her to tell their 1860 hosts that he is her brother and when Casey finds she has a handsome, wealthy (and unwanted) suitor, something changes in Nate. Are those romantic sparks or is it just “brotherly” protectiveness?

When they return to the present, things go back to the way they were before: Casey parked on the bottom of the rung of the social ladder and Nate perched high on the very the top. Except this time her heart is broken. Plus, her best friend is mad, her parents are split up, and her younger brother gets escorted home by the police. The only thing that could make life worse is if, by some strange twist of fate, she took Nate back to the past again.

Which of course, she does.

Casey, the heroine of the story was a normal girl who has to deal what most teenage girl has to deal with. But what’s special about Casey is that she can ‘trip’, or time travelled to the 19th century and one day Casey accidentally taken Nate, the cute, popular guy in school back to the past. How is she going to explain about this?

Clockwise by Elle Strauss is one of the books that I didn’t expect I would be enjoying so much. At first, I was a little bit sceptical what with the setup—Casey, the not so popular, liking the cute, popular guy in school and she also had issues with one of the popular girl in school. But things got a little bit more interesting once Casey accidentally took Nate into the past. We get to see Casey in a different light. I think I like Casey more when she travelled to the past. She’s a lot more confident, reliable and funny.

I definitely enjoy the story as it goes on. The characters are fun. The story flowed nicely with the past and present.  There are lots of moments that made me smile. Clockwise by Elle Strauss is definitely a fun and cute story. Clockwise by Elle Strauss is available for free on Kindle.
