Date Published: June 1, 2016

Save the girl.
Save the day.
Save yourself.

The mission sounds easy enough, but it is anything but easy for Parker Jenkins. Yesterday, ordinary, poverty-stricken Parker was an ordinary high school kid, getting bullied relentlessly and trying to get by. Today, he's a time traveler with gifted powers expected to carry out the extraordinary. Teaming up with another time traveler, Scarlet, they must save an innocent girl on the run before the villains kill them all. If they don't, their present-day selves will die. But can the ordinary perform the extraordinary?

My Review:

Parker Jenkins is just your ordinary high school boy who is picked on every day by the school jock, Travis. Parker is in love with Travis’s girlfriend Clara and is always lusting after her and Travis is always sending him to the school nurse for looking at her.

Parker has a rough home life too. He has an abusive stepdad and his mother has never been the same since they lost Parker’s dad a few years back. With her having to work all the time just to make ends meet and to keep food on the table for all of them it has all made her a very bitter person.

Parker has two great friends from school, Douglas and Kimi. They are always taking up for Parker but it doesn’t do any good. Douglas and Kimi are picked on as well and are part of the school’s outcast.

One night after taking one of Travis’s “beatings”; Parker goes to bed and falls “asleep” and wakes up in Tokyo. Parker has no idea what is going but he comes to the conclusion that the only thing that it could be is that is dreaming. Yeah that is it. But the girl, Scarlet that he has met keeps insisting that it is not a dream and that it is all real. She keeps trying to convince him that he has time traveled just like her. Parker being the inquisitive nerd that he is has a lot of questions for Scarlet but she keeps telling him they don’t have time for that.

Scarlet explains to him that when they time travel they have a mission to complete and they only have a certain amount of time to complete said mission. This time they are sent to save a little girl, Tora from some very bad men. Parker wants to know who Tora is. Who are these bad men? And what do they want with Tora? Along with numerous other questions of course which gets on Scarlet’s nerves but that is just Parker always wanting to know what is going on and what everything is.

But once Parker gets to know Tora he still has all these questions and then some but he has now become quite taken with little Tora and has step up a notch or two from the picked on kid at school to one that stands up to the bad men to protect a defenseless little girl.
Infinite Time was a very interesting read unlike any that I have read before. The characters were quite loveable each in their own way. Well except for the bad men that is. But bad men are what make for a very good read. You know good versus evil kind of thing that balances everything out. If you have not read Infinite Time then I would like to recommend that you do. If you like time travel then this is the book for you. So pick up your now!
