The Square Root of Summer


Time travel meets romance in this gorgeously written Time Traveler's Wife for teens.

Gottie H. Oppenheimer is a lot of things: Seventeen. Great at math. Tall. Half-German. Motherless. And she's losing time. Literally.

When the fabric of the universe surrounding her sleepy seaside town begins to fray, it sends Gottie through wormholes to her past. To last summer, when her grandfather Grey died, and she lost her virginity to a boy who wouldn't even hold her hand at the funeral. To before her childhood best friend Thomas Althorpe moved to Canada, leaving her behind with a scar on her hand and a black hole in her memory. But although Grey is still gone, Jason and Thomas are back, and Gottie's summer - and life - are changed forever.

Amidst romantic tumult and rips in the time-space continuum, Gottie learns that to stop being afraid of the future, you've got to let go of the past.

Lyrical, lovely, lush, and lasting, this is the debut of a breakthrough YA voice by UK author, Harriet Reuter Hapgood.

      I wonder what it is about because it seems very good just by looking at the cover but I guess the cover don´t matter like that. Also I heard that it is a great book and if you try it you will be amazed and satisfied by the book. So it you don´t believe it try it because I don´t know the truth and reply to my comment to let me know if it is true. Thanks!!
