Waterfall: A Novel (River of Time Series)

Waterfall: A Novel (River of Time Series) - Lisa T. Bergren Even though time travel may never be a reality, the concept of being able to see the past and/or future has always been quite exciting to me. It turns out I'm not alone; between H. G. Wells' classic novel "The Time Machine," the cinematic "Back to the Future" trilogy, and kiddie edutainment games such as "Mario is Missing" and "Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?", not to mention the PBS game show based on the latter, the thought of voyaging through the years has enthralled many. "Waterfall" is a chrono-trekking novel that is part fantasy, part historical fiction, and part Disney Channel Original Movie. It's actually a very fun read, if you can forgive the totally unnecessary awkward formatting in one section. The young female narrator is likable, the story is fast-paced even when there are no battles going on, and the writing style is very readable. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.
