    Gwyneth Shepherd's sophisticated, beautiful cousin Charlotte has been prepared her entire life for traveling through time. But unexpectedly, it is Gwyneth who, in the middle of class, takes a sudden spin to a different era! Gwyneth must now unearth the mystery of why her mother would lie about her birth date to ward off suspicion about her ability, brush up on her history, and work with Gideon, the time traveler from a similarly gifted family that passes the gene through its male line, and whose presence becomes, in time, less insufferable and more essential.

    betsy says: "Where's the rest?"
    "It's one of the best teen fiction I've ever read"

    Story
    What did you love best about Ruby Red?

    I love that you really don't know what is going on, just like Gwendolyn. I love the concept of time travel and that it is uncontrolled without the chronograph.This has become my favourite teen fiction trilogies. I love that Gwendolyn is so ordinary and that Gideon is so dreamy. The character that steals the show is the gargoyl.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ruby Red?

    My favourite part is the end where Gideon kisses Gwendolyn.


    Which character – as performed by Marisa Calin – was your favorite?

    My favourite character is the gargoyl. I can't remembr how to spell his name.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed and though I didn't cry tears, I cryied out in frustration a few times.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read the whole series in German and can't wait for the English version. The movie comes out in fall of 2013 (in German but the trailer looks so cool).
