Staff Reviews



This was our book club read for November and we thoroughly enjoyed it! This is a fantastic debut from Terrill and I can’t wait to see what she’s going to come up with next. Em has been imprisoned at a secret military base for what feels like years. She’s constantly tortured for information by a man called, the doctor (yes I really did love the slight Doctor Who reference, even if it was unintentional!). All Em has to keep her going is the voice of a mysterious boy in the cell next to her, until one day she finds a slip of paper taped inside the drain of her cell. The slip of paper contains the instructions Em will need in order to escape. This fast-paced science fiction thriller is great for fans of, well, science fiction! I know it’s a slim genre in YA, but I really liked the time travel elements in this one! It’s a quick read with an unbelievable ending! --Anna, Books Inc. Palo Alto

Description


Imprisoned in the heart of a secret military base, Em has nothing except the voice of the boy in the cell next door and the list of instructions she finds taped inside the drain.

Only Em can complete the final instruction. She's tried everything to prevent the creation of a time machine that will tear the world apart. She holds the proof: a list she has never seen before, written in her own hand. Each failed attempt in the past has led her to the same terrible present- imprisoned and tortured by a sadistic man called the doctor while war rages outside.

Marina has loved her best friend, James, since they were children. A gorgeous, introverted science prodigy from one of America's most famous families, James finally seems to be seeing Marina in a new way, too. But on one disastrous night, James's life crumbles apart, and with it, Marina's hopes for their future. Marina will protect James, no matter what. Even if it means opening her eyes to a truth so terrible that she may not survive it . . . at least, not as the girl she once was. Em and Marina are in a race against time only one of them can win.

All Our Yesterdays is a wrenching, brilliantly plotted story of fierce love, unthinkable sacrifice, and the infinite implications of our every choice.
