Author Shay West’s, The Adventures of Alexis Davenport Series, takes the reader on a journey through time, and follows the struggles of a modern teenage girl as she copes with major life changes and a secret that could cost Alex her life.

Dangerous Reflections 

Alexis Davenport wants to go home. She hates her new school, her mother for moving her away from her friends, and her father for walking out.

To make matters worse, Alex is haunted by images of strange girls reflected in her mirror. It’s bad enough juggling homework, a relentless bully, boys, and a deadbeat dad; now, she must save the world from an evil presence hell-bent on changing the past – and our futures. Who knew her A+ in history was going to be this important?

Twisted Reflections

Alexis Davenport is learning to come to grips with her ability to travel through time, but she still hasn’t been able to stop the evil Drifter and his Master from trying to alter the past.

When she travels back to ancient Egypt, Alex gets a most unexpected surprise; she meets someone who can help her figure out how to use her powers, another Traveler like herself.

But can Alex learn how to control her gift before Drifter finds a way to stop her from meddling in his Master’s plans?

Desperate Reflections 

In this final book of the Adventures of Alexis Davenport Series, we find Alex dealing with more drama than ever: her first break-up, her mom’s new boyfriend, and attempting to learn the secrets of her “gift” on her own.

Desperate to stop Drifter, Alex uses her ability to locate the evil Traveler, only to discover that he lives in her time…

And he knows who she is.

In a final race against time, Alex must discover Drifter’s ultimate plan, stop him, and save her family…all before prom.

Riley Witt is running out of time. 

Battling Alzheimer’s disease, Riley’s grandmother Mary suffers from memory loss, mood swings, and a tendency to wander off. 

As senior year approaches, Riley has to face the reality that the one person she depends on most is slowly fading. Making matters 
worse, when Mary does remember the past, she tells tales of time travel and visions. As Mary’s version of the past gets more confused, Riley knows they are running out of time together. 
But when Riley discovers a guitar belonging to a famous rock star at Mary’s house, the truth behind the crazy tales finally comes out. 

SIX STRINGS tells the story of Riley’s journey back to 1973 where she enters a world of music, long-lost family, and first love. Her adventure is all about discovering her past, understanding her present, and figuring out how to step into her future.

(Blurb from publisher.)

—————————————————————————–

Let’s be honest here, I read this book in two nights.  It was so good I couldn’t put it down.  I got pulled back into my teenage years, but in a good way.  I’m not saying that Riley had it easy though, because she definitely didn’t.

Riley’s summer leading into senior year is basically taking care of her grandmother who has Alzheimer’s.  Riley and her grandmother were/are super close, so this is heartbreaking.  Sometimes her grandmother is perfectly coherent, other times she wanders off and is in her own world.  So when Riley’s grandmother tells her that Riley is going to have the ability to travel through time soon, Riley doesn’t know if it’s just her grandmother’s illness talking.

But it’s not, and Riley travels back to the 70’s.  I loved it.  I felt like I was back in time with Riley, living with the hippies.  Riley meets a guy, well two guys in a band, but I’m not going to say much more because I don’t want to give anything away.

You guys should really read this book.  It’s the first in a series, and it’s fantastic.  Although the time travel is in there, it doesn’t feel like a fantasy, more like contemporary young adult, with a little romance added in.  I can’t wait until the next one comes out!

My Rating:  4 ½ stars

***I need to disclose that I received this book free from the publisher, Booktrope.  And I also work for Booktrope, but in no way did that sway my opinion on this book.  I also receive no monetary gains from giving this book a good review.  This review is based solely on my honest opinion.***
