It had always been Michele and her mother. They had a great life in Los Angeles. But when her mother dies in a car crash, Michele finds herself across the country living with grandparents she's never met. Grandparents who happen to be Windsor's, one of the oldest (and richest) families in New York City. As Michele struggles to adjust to her new life, she finds herself exploring the house her mother grew up in. What she finds is a diary, a diary that takes her back to 1910. Where she discovers that everything she thought she knew isn't quite true.
For a book about time travel, Timeless is well written and pretty believable. I enjoyed how the author didn't try to explain any 'science' behind the diary's ability to take Michele back in time to whichever time period she was thinking about. I also thought that her interactions with her ancestors were quite fun, plus the idea that she was the impetus for most of their choices is interesting. This book is the first in it's series, something good to know going in because a lot is left unresolved. All in all it's a good read for teens who like romance.
