Timekeeper by Alexandra Monir - ADVISABLE

Monir, Alexandra Timekeeper, 252 pgs. Delacorte Press, 2013.

Language - PG (11 swears, 0 "f"), Sexual Content - PG; Violence - PG; 

Michele and Philip can finally be together in the same time period. Or, they would be able to if Philip remembered Michele and there wasn't a vengeful time-traveler chasing down Michele. In a world determined to keep Michele and Philip apart, they must fight to keep the happiness they experience together. 

While I loved seeing the time-traveling ability develop and information about Michele's father unfold, I found that Timekeeper wasn't as enjoyable as its prequel, Timeless. When Philip didn't remember Michele, I was confused and annoyed. The reasoning was later explained, but it uses a non-time-traveling theory. By using another type of theory, I feel like Monir is taking on too much.
