Alessandra D’Angeli is in need of an adventure. Tired of her sixteenth-century life in Italy and homesick for her time-traveling cousin, Cat, who visited her for a magical week and dazzled her with tales of the future, Alessandra is lost. Until the stars hear her plea.
One mystical spell later, Alessandra appears on Cat’s Beverly Hills doorstep five hundred years in the future. Surrounded by confusing gadgets, scary transportation, and scandalous clothing, Less is hesitant to live the life of a twenty-first century teen…until she meets the infuriating—and infuriatingly handsome—surfer Austin Michaels. Austin challenges everything she believes in…and introduces her to a world filled with possibility.
With the clock ticking, Less knows she must live every moment of her modern life while she still can. But how will she return to the drab life of her past when the future is what holds everything she’s come to love?
I was ecstatic when I found out this book was from Alessandra’s point of view. I loved her in MSSSC, and couldn’t get enough of her in this book.
I loved seeing Less’s reaction to the technology in our century. It’s like you get to view the world as a child again. Things are scary but interesting all at the same time. I also love how stubborn Less can be. She’s more like Cat than she thought. Less loosens up when she meets Austin. He is the perfect surfer guy, and he sees right through Less. I think they each make the other want to be a better person.
We also get to peek a little bit into Cat’s life, and meet the new mystery boy, Lucas. Well he’s not really a mystery, but things are just so amazing about him. Cat and Less also become even closer. They are definitely more like sisters than distant relatives.
A Tale of Two Centuries is a great follow up to this series. I can’t wait until the next book. If only I knew the release date.
