Time Travel for Teens

This book doesn’t get bogged down in the sciences time travel, but instead focuses on the difficulties the characters may face as a women, and as a black man in different counties and eras. The love story doesn’t take over the novel, but is important to the storyline. Some violence and swearing, but nothing worse than what teens are watching on YouTube or Netflix.
