The Next Together by Lauren James


How many times can you lose the person you love? 

Katherine and Matthew are destined to be born again and again, century after century. Each time, their presence changes history for the better, and each time, they fall hopelessly in love, only to be tragically separated. 

Spanning the Crimean War, the Siege of Carlisle and the near-future of 2019 and 2039 they find themselves sacrificing their lives to save the world. But why do they keep coming back? What else must they achieve before they can be left to live and love in peace? 

Maybe the next together will be different...

A powerful and epic debut novel for teenagers about time-travel, fate and the timelessness of first love. The Next Together is told through a mixture of regular prose, diary entries, letters, "original" historical documents, news reports and internet articles.

My Thoughts

This book is as confusing as it is good!  I don't mean that in a negative way at all.  I am sincerely happy and confused at the same time.  Actually, I am mostly just confused at the ending.  However, that is typically how books that are in a series tend to go.

The Next Together is about two people, four different places, and four different times.  To be honest, I never used to like time travel type stories very much until about 2 years ago when I read a book that changed my mind.  Then last year I read another time travel book that I absolutely fell in love with.  This book falls into that same category.  I am pretty smitten with it!

If you decide to pick up this book you will not regret it.  I am so glad that it was sent my way!

*Note: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
