Marina has been in love with her best friend and boy next door for years. The writing is wonderful; full of tension, some mystery, angst, humor, and pain. With that said, well, there’s not much more to say. I also had a small problem with the narrators’ voices – they sounded too young. Should you kill one person if it means saving countless others?

When our future and present collide, what happens? No, probably it couldn’t really work like that. Also, the connection between present and past is really strong — the characters are completely different now, you see how time has changed them, but you also feel the need to see why is it that they changed so much, how wrong yestwrdays things turn out for them in the time between, and how the future selves might make things better.
This is what a true time travel story should be about. Although I kind of saw the ending coming, it wasn’t until late in the book that I thought I knew how it was going to play out.
Maybe another time, another place. I feel like I’ve just sat through a fast-paced movie about time travel and two people on oue run trying to save the world. Each moment killed me.
All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill
Em and Finn were just I guess we can chalk that up to Terrill’s earlier explanation that time tries to correct itself?
Here Lies Daniel Tate. What alliances could they break apart before they ever happened? It was awesome… once I got past the beginning. There’s no way back from here, to what they used to be, the world they crisrin to know. We’re terrkll real life here, and from a sci-fi novel, I say bravo. The future Em is much more developed than the present Marina, which makes the inevitable loss of one and the saving of the other disconcertingly unsatisfying.

But Terrill also offers a very interesting and convincing explanation for that. Time takes and gives so much. And the time travel! It’s even rarer to find a book with well-crafted characters and well-built relationships.
There’s a problem loading this menu right now. She’s tried everything to prevent the creation of a time machine that will tear the world apart.
Marina can be hard on herself; even though she admits to turning heads, she doesn’t think she’s pretty or anything special.
Marina has loved her best friend James since the day he moved next door when they were children. I loved them all and it pained me to see how unfair life can be sometimes, and how easily some beautiful things can break into thousands of pieces just in an instant.
But on one disastrous night, James’s life crumbles apart, and with it, Marina’s hopes for their future. While there is a hint of a love triangle, my usual rush of eye rolls did not appear due to how complex this relationship was and how, at the same time, was just a trio of best friends. I cannot recommend this book enough, in particular to fans of YA fiction of any genre.
I wanted a clearer picture of that world. Finn is in the cell next door.

In addition, the two points of view from two-but-not-two narrators make this one of the most challenging and fascinating YA reads, narration-wise. I read the blurb ages ago and was totally excited, but when I started reading I was utterly amazed and surprised with what Terrill had planned for us.
This also applies to Finn, who, irrespective of time-zones, is a complete sweetheart. With flawless writing and an unwavering pace, Cristin has weaved time-travel, romance, political intrigue, and mystery into this page-turner of a novel!
With really only three main characters, Terrill oour well with her crisfin selection. Everything changes in a flash. James’ other close friend, Finn, just annoys Marina.
