That of a girl his age Jacueline who defies the expectations of her era Since his seizures usually give him spazzed out visions Jack presumes this is a hallucination Feeling fearless he steals a horse expecting that at any moment he’ll wake back up in the clinical trial lab When that doesn't happen Jacu. This is a book in which time travel is done right As much as I love Jack I love Jac even a story of a boy with epilepsy dissolves into a story of someone displaced in time and space trying to get back to his own world But once the world around him starts to fall apart the ties Jack has to reality begin to fall apart honestly by the time I finished this book I couldn't tell which head was the one he really started in even though it's explicitly stated it's Jack but then he could just be remembering things or imagining themI love books that make you think when you c lose the back cover The Unintentional Time  Traveler brings up all kinds of uestions from 'Who are we really' to uestions of one's self and identity the matter of a soul's gender and place the effects of time A boy transplanted into a girl's body building a life in both times places and bodies can only work in a well written book and this is one of those booksI could bring up all kinds of arguments for transgenderism and non conformist sexualities represented and alluded to intentionally or not but that would make this an English essay and I hate having good books torn apartSummaey I just plain loved this book555

Summary The Unintentional Time Traveler

The Unintentional Time TravelerEline falls unexpectedly in love even as the town in the past becomes swallowed in a fight for its survival JackJacueline is caught between two lives and epochs and must find a way to save everyone around him as well as himself And all the while he is losing time even if he is getting out of algebra class. The Unintentional Time Traveler is a fast paced piece of YA fiction with a few interesting twists on genre and character tropes that kept me interested and wanting to read The characters are well drawn and complex no easy trope role filling here There’s a tendency I think in time travel novels to give short shrift to one set of characters or the other either the present day characters are given weight than the pastfuture cast or vice versa Maroon very capably avoids that imbalance giving us two sets of interesting supporting characters to get to know each with character arcs and subplots that affect the main plot He also doesn’t skimp on Jack’s personal exploration how being in Jacueline’s body causes him to reassess what he’s always known about himself how it alters his relationships with his friends Jay and Jeannine in the present The book is a time travel novel genre wise but it is so a journey of discoveryThe time travel itself is of the “take over a past person’s body” type rather than the physical transportation of the main character to another time period Tying Jack’s time jumps into his life long epilepsy engages the reader not only in the mystery how is this happening but also in the character’s fate will Jack’s epilepsy be cured or are the time jumps making it worse adding a level of concern that many time travel novels lack I also liked the aspect that present day Jack unpredictably “loses time” when he jumps into Jacueline’s body; it adds another layer of tension to the travel and also adds another mystery to the mix how much time has passed and what will be different this time I won’t pretend to be able to explicate the way Maroon’s cross body cross time travel works but I will say that in context in the midst of the book it made sense to me And really isn’t that what we want from our genre reading – internal consistencyPlot wise the set up introduced in the back cover copy would be propelling enough but Maroon keeps JackJaueline and us guessing as to what will happen next and how it all comes together
