Synopsis from Goodreads: Jenny Waters boards her flight in 1995, but when she lands, she and the other passengers are told they disappeared . . . 25 years ago. Everyone thought they were dead.

Now contending with her family and friends fast-forwarding decades, Jenny must quickly adjust to smartphones and social media while being the biggest story to hit the internet. She feels betrayed by her once-best friend and fights her attraction to a cute boy with an uncomfortable connection to her past. Meanwhile, there’s a growing group of conspiracy theorists determined to prove the whole situation is a hoax. Will Jenny figure out how to move forward, or will she always be stuck in the past?

My Review: I enjoyed this twist on the same idea as the TV show manifest, though this one takes a completely different path. The story mainly focuses on the difference in Jenny's life compared with that of 95. She no longer has any idea how to fit in. I liked the story well enough though I was expecting a little bit more from it. The book also seems to be for younger ya audience and Jenny seems immature in some points. Overall it was a cute light read.

*I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher. All opinions are my own.*
