A teen writer discovers that every mirror is a portal into an alternate version of her life in this romantic YA fantasy by author L.E. DeLano.

Jessa has spent her life dreaming of other worlds and writing down stories more interesting than her own, until the day her favorite character, Finn, suddenly shows up and invites her out for coffee. After the requisite nervous breakdown, Jessa learns that she and Finn are Travelers, born with the ability to slide through reflections and dreams into alternate realities. But it’s not all teacakes, pirates and fantasy lifestyles…Jessa is dying over and over again, in every reality, and Finn is determined that this time, he’s going to stop it… this Jessa is going to live.

My Review:

Jessa is a high school student who loves to write and keeps pen and paper with her at all times. When anything of interest happens she just pulls out her pen and paper and writes it all down while it is fresh in her mind. While everyone else is using the computer Jessa prefers the old pen and paper. Jessa loves her life and dreams of being a writer one day. She has a best friend Ben whom she spends most of her time with. I love how Jessa and Ben get along and their attitude towards one another is fantastic. They cut up and joke with each other all the time.

Then one day Jessa meets the man of her dreams, literally. She meets a guy named Finn whom she actually does dream about very often. But what she doesn’t realize at first is that they are not dreams they are memories. Finn is not from Jessa’s time no Finn is a time traveler and has come to Jessa in this time to save her. Jessa finds out that she is also a traveler and that someone wants her dead. They want to kill her and all the other Jessa’s in other times as well which they have killed a few of her and if Finn can’t stop them will continue to kill the other Jessa’s. The problem is they have no clue as to who wants her dead. 

Who wants Jessa dead? Could it be another traveler? Could it be someone from her school? Could it be her best friend Ben? Could it be Finn? Can Jessa and Finn find out who wants her dead before it is too late?

Jessa is a very soft, kind hearted girl but can stand on her own when it comes to protecting the people she loves and cares about. If you have not read Traveler then you don’t know what you are missing as it is filled with lots of adventure. Come follow Jessa on all her time traveling adventures as she gets to meet all the other Finn’s and Jessa’s. I can’t wait to see what adventures Jessa, Finn and Ben take us on in the next book.
