Publisher's Summary

"A rousing what-if look at a decidedly different America persuasively stuck in a historical past.” (Kirkus Reviews)

A college party lands freshman Hal Christianson in an America that could have been: no smartphones, no cars, no flush toilets. What he finds is a squabbling bunch of states, the consequence of the colonies having grown up on their own after European civilization collapsed from plague in the 1670s, and they are poised on the brink of war.

For a socially awkward young man who takes refuge in online games, this is a bad situation. He has no knowledge or experience that is useful in this world. He does, however, have one skill of value in a world where the rifle is a new invention: He is a competitive fencer. 

What do you do when the world is strange and you have no way to control your own fate? Can Hal grow up fast enough to survive in this world and can he find a way home?

For teens

It is well written and has a interesting premise.
he gets transported to an alternate universe that is more inline to the independence era. while the year being about the same as his old world.

However there are things that just make one cringe, the main character is, well is quite pathetic.
he blushes a lot, falls in love in seconds while acting like somebody who has never seen an average looking girl or pr0n, while running behind the with the "my queen" attitude.

I don't know why some authors have these "hard" on for writing these main character, but it would have been 10 times better a book if the personality of the main character would atleast be normal and not so artificially bad.
