First Line: "I don't get what we're supposed to be doing," Holly said as she spread her worksheets all over the gym floor.
The year is 2009. Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy… he’s in college, throws lots of parties, is interested in a girl he can’t have, and oh yeah, he can travel back through time.But it’s not like the movies – nothing changes in the present after his jumps, there’s no space-time continuum issues or broken flux capacitors – it’s just harmless fun.
     Tomorrow is Today is the bonus prequel to Tempest by Julie Cross, which I reviewed earlier this year.  Since this prequel only lasts about 30 pages, I can only give a "Mini-Review."  I felt the same way about the characters in this prequel because they were the same.  It was nice to see another side of Holly, though.  I really liked seeing how Adam, Holly, and Jackson first became friends.  It was nice seeing how they got to know each other.  I also thought the party and the roof scene were a fun twist on the more serious events that happened in Tempest.  I liked being able to see Adam, Holly, and Jackson in a more friendly environment.  It was a nice break from all of the more dangerous and serious scenes in Tempest.  I also really liked the use of time travel in this short story when Jackson found the little girl.  I thought it was a creative use of Jackson's powers.  Since Tomorrow is Today was only a short bonus story, there wasn't much room for things to love or hate.  That being said, my final grade is:

PS- If you have a nook or a device that you can use the nook app on, download the ebook now!  It's free! :)


  1. So do you think it's better to read this before or after Tempest?

    1. I would probably say to read it after so that you know how the time travel works! :)
