Save the girl.Save the day.Save yourself.
The mission sounds easy enough, but it is anything but easy for Parker Jenkins. Yesterday, ordinary, poverty-stricken Parker was an ordinary high school kid, getting bullied relentlessly and trying to get by. Today, he's a time traveler with gifted powers expected to carry out the extraordinary. Teaming up with another time traveler, Scarlet, they must save an innocent girl on the run before the villains kill them all. If they don't, their present-day selves will die. But can the ordinary perform the extraordinary?
Life was good for Parker up until the day his dad died. Now in high school, he’s not the most popular kid in class. He is poor and often made fun of. His home life is not great as his mom works all the time to support him and his low-life step-father. As Parker starts to resign to what life is like after his father, he wakes up in a different time in a different place. He finds out he has to complete his mission before time runs out for him and the girl he is trying to save.
In an Oyster Shell – This was a small taste of a really big story that seems to just be getting started.
The Pearls – The concept was good, though not thoroughly original an underdog main character who get’s called to something bigger. What I thought was original about this concept is the way the author had the characters time travel and incorporated an idea of an overall timeline. It was like the idea of Time Cop but with a young high school kid.
I liked the first person POV. I thought it was the best perspective for this story. Seeing everything go through Parker’s eyes made this story interesting. His reactions and inner dialogue made me feel something as a reader.
The overall plot was really interesting. You didn’t really know who to trust. At the end of the story you still didn’t know who to trust, which makes me eager for the next one.
The Sand – The story could of been a little bit longer, been a little more fleshed out.
