During Justina's time travels she learns why the past keeps pulling her back into Laurice Haywoods' world back in 1932. TWO BOUNDLESS STARS
Justina is just a normal college student when a strange mirror in her dorm room brings her to the past. Using her past self and knowledge, she helps save a woman from a worrying fate. I took this book because it was a short story and it was time travel. I love reading both so it was right up my alley. This book had a good story to tell, but the writing itself lacked. The problems in Grammar, punctuation, and repetitiveness all really hurt this story. It seemed like most of the story was just repeating phrases so as to fill space. It probably would have been half the length if all the extra things were taken out. Honestly, the story of time travel was a good tale, I just wished the story was written better.
