                   Gwyneth is supposedly a normal girl. Or at least, that is what she has thought for the last 15 years of her life in London, England. The Time Travel gene that runs in her family has skipped over her. Her perky, smart, and perfect cousin Charlotte has inherited it. At least that is what everyone else in her family thinks. Until one day, Gwyneth travels back in time instead of Charlotte. It is not as great as it sounds. Her cousin is instantly jealous, and Gwyneth's life is put through a cyclone. Now aware of her new status, the people in the league of Time Travel scientists are positive that she is the Ruby, the last time traveler in the 12. Her male counterpart from the other time traveling family is Gideon de Villiers. He is smart, handsome, courteous, everything. And he has stolen her heart. Without any training to time travel, Gwyneth is instantly lost in a world of fancy clothing and parties. But what is in store for her? Nobody will tell what her fate is. Will she be destined for greatness or death?
                    I thought this book was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love time travel (Cough *Doctor Who* Cough Cough), and this book perfectly suited that. Plus the fact that it is a British book. Even more like (Cough Cough *Doctor Who* Cough Cough). Gwyneth was very sure that she didn't have it, but she did. Now on to the Star rating. Honestly, why why why why why was there so much ROMANCE??????? Sheesh. Gideon breaks her heart by doing blah blah blah, and also blah blah blah blah blah. It was sweet at the end, but seriously! In the middle of the book, I thought it was just there to fill up pages. I got a teeny bit bored. Now, did that stop this book from being one of my favorite books? No. (I then proceeded to read the other two books in the series in less than a day. Oops.) This book was a little inappropriate. Not that bad. There was some British cussing though, and that was pretty funny. So I would recommend this book to 7th grade and up. It was really amazing though, and you really, really, really, really, really need to read it. Now. Go to the library and get it. Or buy it. NOW. (Please though, it is very good. You won't regret it!)
