The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell - ESSENTIAL

Maxwell, Lisa The Last Magician 498 pgs., Simon Pulse, $18.99, Language: PG(9 swears, 0 “F”); Mature Content: PG; Violence: PG; 

Esta lives in Modern New York and is a talented thief with a secret. A big secret that keeps her trapped inside the city. She can travel through time. So, when Esta is asked to go back in time to 1902, she agrees and finds a web of schemes and lies. She also finds a little romance. When Esta is faced with a decision, stay in the time she has come to love or fulfill her mission, her choice changes her life forever. 

I loved this book. It was a fun one to read and also told a lot about what the time was like if you lived in 1902. Mature Content is PG because there is some kissing and some talk of womanly services men paid for at a bar. Violence is PG because there is quite a few scenes of fighting and a little blood in the process.
