Elena has hidden her eidetic memory all her life—or so she believes—until Aether Corporation reveals they know about her talent. She is offered the chance to participate in a top-secret mission. The mission is to go to the future with other kids her age who also have special skills. In exchange, she’ll gain enough money to help her make her way after she is kicked out of the foster system when she turns 18. However, when things go wrong in the future they all decide to break the only rule they were given: not to look into their own fates. Now they have to stop the seemingly inevitable fates that await them when they go back to the present.
While Future Shock was a bit slow at the beginning, I enjoyed watching it unfurl in front of me until the very last page. The characters were very well thought out and they each brought something new and interesting to the table. As they all became more dynamic, and the story danced around what was really going on, I become more enthralled. This book seems to have something for everyone, whether because of the brilliant Sci-Fi touch, street-smart fights, or the blooming of romance.
