All Emery Land wants is to be like any other 17-year-old--to go to school, hang out with her friends, and just be normal. But for as long as she can remember, she's suffered from seizures. And in recent years they've consumed her life. To Emery they're much more than seizures, she calls them loops--moments when she travels through wormholes back and forth in time and to a mysterious town. The loops are taking their toll on her physically. So she practically lives in the hospital where her scientist father and an ever-growing team of doctors monitor her every move. They're extremely interested in the data they collect when Emery seizes. It appears that she's tapping into parts of the brain typically left untouched by normal human beings. 
Escaping from the hospital, Emery travels to Esperanza, the town from her loops on the upper peninsula of Michigan, where she meets Asher Clarke. Ash's life is governed by his single-minded pursuit of performing good Samaritan acts to atone for the death of a loved one. His journey is very much entwined with Emery's loops. 
Drawn together they must unravel their complicated connection before it's too late.

I cannot remember where i saw this book first or what drew me too it intially.  The cover is a little bit 'meh' but at the same time it is a little odd and therefore intriguing so i thought i'd read the 'blurb' to discover what it is about.  Once read, i'm hooked.  Right now, i am going through a 'time travel' obsession with books and i question how much time travelling is going to occur in the book but the link with Asher seems interesting.  Another twist on the time travel idea is that it occurs with seizures and that she is in hospital and her dad is a scientist (makes you think she is going to be a 'test piece' for research etc).  I am really perplexed by the brain and it's functions-we use only a tiny amount of it and i always wonder about the rest of the brain, the functions we don't know about, or how to use. Oh bit of science there, i love it.  Therefore in a novel with time travel, PERFECT!  Hope it lives up to the expectations i have for this book.  Looking forward to reading this.
Has anyone got this book to review?

What is everyone else waiting for with their 'WoW' this week?
