For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn’t there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents’ death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She’s tried everything, but the visions keep coming back.
So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson’s willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may change her past.
Who is this dark, mysterious, sympathetic guy, barely older than Emerson herself, who seems to believe every crazy word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he’s around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should have happened?
I have heard so many good things about Hourglass from those lucky enough to get an ARC copy that I am highly anticipating getting a chance to read this YA novel by Myra McEntire as well! I love how mysterious this Hourglass organization and Michael character sound! In a way, Hourglass kind of reminds me of Meg Cabot's The Mediator series (which I loved), but with a twist. All I can say is that June 4th cannot come soon enough!
