Have you ever wanted to travel back in time? Well, get tested to see if you have the glitch in your DNA. If you do, you will automatically be taken to the Glitch Academy where you will learn history, self-defense, and glitching, the ability to time travel. You will be secluded from the rest of the world, taken away from your family, and spend your time studying history. But you will also learn how to detect butterflies (the bad guys) who want to change history. If they succeed, the world as we know it wouldn’t exist. Regan and Elliot who are two cadets at the Academy and are not the best of friends, are put in a situation where they need to put their differences aside as they are asked to save the Academy and the world as we know it.

I really liked this book and I think tweens and early teens would enjoy reading it. It is a fast read. The author did an incredible job expressing in detail, but not too much detail, what the academy is like for all of the cadets who attend. I really like the way she described the feelings the two main characters had towards each other. I do have a hard time understanding exactly how things all worked out because of the time travel aspect of the book but as long as I don’t think that much into it, it works.
