"Be swept away for a ride! Oh wow! What a ride! It's an alternative world and anything is possible. It's a thrill ride of a story! Ebony's writing style is incredibly appealing to YA with touches of humour and ironic story telling. The first person, present tense gives a real impact to what's happening and you can't help but get swept away for the ride. If you like time-travel, adventure and a touch of romance - this is the book for you!"

"I love time travel stories but this one comes with a twist. The author has done a fabulous job of not only portraying the angst of a modern teenager stuck in the past without any modern props, but also in the company of a boy after whom she has been languishing, as only teenagers can. She also shows a good knowledge of the actual historical events of the time and has cleverly manipulated them to suit the 'ish' of 1916. Highly recommended for Young Adults and Young at heart Adults."

"Terrific Time-Travel. Ebony McKenna takes three teenagers, French twins Luc and Mari and Australian exchange student Ingrid, on an exciting and at times terrifying journey back to France, 1916 in the middle of First World War. The battle/transition scene is so vivid you feel you are there and as the teenagers start to get to grips with what has happened, odd things begin to happen. The tension builds to a superb twist that makes you sit back and go 'Whoa!'. The characters are extremely well-drawn and the budding romance between Luc and Ingrid is full of all the angst and doubt that takes you right back to your own teenage years. A highly enjoyable read."

"I really enjoyed it and read it (almost) in one sitting. Ebony McKenna has a clever way with words and I was swept away with the story line of friends time travelling to The Great War. This is really well-written and the author has enough twists and turns in the storyline to keep the reader interested. Thanks Ebony McKenna for a really good read :)"

"This is an action packed story that had me turning the pages ... to see Ingrid and Luc's friendship turning into more than just friendship really made me smile and I loved the little twist at the end with revenge. This is a great story that I highly recommend."

"This is a young adult travel romance and although I do not normally read then I have read Ebony McKenna before and enjoyed her writing. This story really gave a wonderful insight as to what war is like and how we would find things so different if one day it is 2016 and by night fall it is 1916."

"1916-ish by Ebony McKenna is my first read by this author. I tried to put myself in the shoes of a YA reading this and I liked it."

"Time travel fun. I enjoyed this book. McKenna perfectly captured Ingrid's teenage attitude and perceptions. What I liked about this book was that not only did they travel back in time, but either crossed over to another dimension or ended up in an altered history. ...I'm hoping this is the first book in a series. I would definitely read the next book if one is forthcoming."
