Hourglass by Myra McEntire.
HourglassSummery: Emerson Cole has a special talent...or more realistically, a curse. Shortly before her parents were killed in an accident she discovered she could see ghost like people obviously from the past. She is looked at as crazy for talking to "nothing" on several occasions. She has started seeing them again after secretly coming off of her medicine which had been sucking all of her emotions. Her brother has someone to help her...again. All the people he brings in end up being frauds or insane. However Michael is different then the other people her brother has hired. For one thing he is incredible cute and he really seems to understand her. He even says he is like her, seeing what he calls rips...and that he (and Em) can time traveler. Because of this, Em starts to doubt if he is actually sane either. But he brings a grand adventure to her, for sure. 

Romance:A couple kisses (one make out scene kinda, not really described), attraction/admiring, liking/loving someone, thinking/talking about someone, hugging/touching, flirting.
Inappropriate Romance:Em spends the night in Michael's room (he isn't in it) over at his apartment/dorm and several people assume they did something inappropriate and have to be corrected. At another point she has had gotten dirty and showered, with only a pair of clothes. So she is wearing one of his sports shirts and underwear only, while her clothes are washed and several guys see her.

Language:4 (see my new Language rating system on my sidebar)

Violence: Murder, death, yelling/arguments, slapping/hitting someone (or wanting to), shooting, threats, injuries, accidents.

Other:Betrayal, manipulation, brief mention of wine (characters didn't drink), time travel, eavesdropping, spying, snooping.

Time Period:Modern.

My Thoughts:Although there was a good bit of language and a few thoughts and/or moments that I disagreed with, but otherwise I really liked it. Michael and Emerson went together really well, the plot was enticing and had me reading late at night. Also, as this was a time travel story, I was afraid it might be confusing! Although there were some technical terms that were, I otherwise didn't have any trouble understanding it. And I can't wait to get the sequel! I would recommend this book to girls, YA+

My Stars:4
Keep reading!
