All Our Yesterdays

by Cristin Terrill

Gr. 9+

360 pages

Would you travel back in time to kill the one you love, if it meant saving the world? Em and Finn have tried 14 different times to make sure they aren’t stuck living tortured and imprisoned in a bare cell. Each time they go back into the past, the outcome is always the same, and Em ends up reading secret notes hidden in the cell drain from their failed attempts. Em has only four days left, and there is only one more thing they have not tried.

With nothing but a list of instructions to guide her- a list written strangely in her own writing, Em must decide quickly to go back in time to kill the one she loves, to save their past, their future, and save everyone from the apocalypse.

In Cristin Terrill’s debut novel, you follow the points of view of two people- Em and Marina. Em is the book’s brave heroine from which the story is told from the past. Marina is the same person, but from the present time. The reader follows the twists that these characters go through in this fast-paced adventure in a dystopia setting. This book is filled with tension, a heartbreaking romance storyline, and a scary sci-fi surreal tone. This book is highly recommended for readers fascinated by time travel, or anyone who likes Legend by Marie Lu, Divergent by Veronica Roth, TV shows like Doctor Who, or movies like Back to the Future. Here is a list of even more book titles about time travel:
