The blurb intrigued me for this book - from Amazon I was rather disappointed though. I didn't find Jess all that believable. She finds herself instantly in this alternative world, and because it is so oldfashioned she looks out of place right away and gets abuse for it - however, not one of the people who knew the alternate Jess realise she isn't the same person....I didn't really believe they wouldn't stop her and just say 'what the hell is going on?!' and that she manages to fit in for a while - I just found that unbelievable. The alternate world is quite interesting, we're never quite sure what is going on, it seems like maybe Germany won world war 1 or that the UK is basically is a fascist state or World War One never ended, it isn't really clear. I'm not sure if this means we're going to get a series. Pretty average and doesn't do much as a book in itself, is squarely aimed at this age range. I'd recommend City of Ember or The Hunger Games instead tbh!
