The concept of this book is amazing. I really wish the execution had been better.When teenager Jack Bishop agrees to participate in a medical study, he hopes that it will help with his epilepsy. He does not expect that the study will send him back in time, but that’s exactly what happens. During the study, the doctors induce a seizure, and Jack wakes up in 1926. To make things more bizarre, Jack isn’t in his own body. He’s in the body of a girl named Jacqueline. Can Jack/Jacqueline use the [...]

The Unintentional Time Traveler by Everett Maroon is a soon to be released young adult novel introducing Jack, a self-deprecating and entertainingly sarcastic fifteen year old boy with a knack for automotive repair and self-acceptance beyond his age. He suffers from epileptic seizures that have him despairing that he’ll ever be allowed to drive or live without padding on all the hard surfaces in his home. By the time we catch up with him, Jack has suffered through numerous attempts to medicate [...]

This is a book in which time travel is done right. As much as I love Jack, I love Jac even more. a story of a boy with epilepsy dissolves into a story of someone displaced in time and space, trying to get back to his own world. But once the world around him starts to fall apart, the ties Jack has to reality begin to fall apart, honestly, by the time I finished this book, I couldn't tell which head was the one he really started in, even though it's explicitly stated it's Jack - but then, he coul [...]

I was super excited about this initially but had a really hard time following the story and understanding what was going on. A lot of jumps (not just through time) that were hard to follow. Characterization was meh, no one really stuck out or read complexly enough to feel totally real. Writing was pretty basic. Not a HORRIBLE book, and an interesting concept, but just not quite up to par. Possibly good for younger readers?

Well done. Loved the time travel. And OMG the main character, such a cute journey to finding out who she was.

The Unintentional Time Traveler by Everett Maroon is the story of teenage Jack Bishop, whose epilepsy ends up with him put into an experimental program to try to cure him. Unexpectedly (to say the least), this causes him to travel back in time and find himself in the body of 1920s teenage girl, Jaqueline. But as Jack repeatedly jumps between time periods, losing stretches of time along the way, things get complicated in both the past, with a prohibition-era self-proclaimed prophet ruling the tow [...]

I feel kind of awful not giving this a better rating, but for me 3 stars is a good book, and I would say that's where it sat for me.The problems I had were mainly with the writing itself. Many events felt rushed, and many times the emotions didn't resonate with me. After everything Jack / Jacqueline had been through, and devoting so much time trying to figure out the myriad of mysteries, the end felt too rushed and sudden. This is book 1 of 3, so I have to wonder if some things will be explained [...]

The Unintentional Time Traveler is a fast-paced piece of YA fiction with a few interesting twists on genre and character tropes that kept me interested and wanting to read more. The characters are well-drawn and complex: no easy trope-role-filling here. There’s a tendency, I think, in time travel novels to give short shrift to one set of characters or the other: either the present-day characters are given more weight than the past/future cast, or vice versa. Maroon very capably avoids that imb [...]

I think the main problem I had with this book, was that it fails to linger in the moment. Perhaps it's just me, but my favorite thing in a story is when the author lingers, gives you a feel for the world. The story itself wasn't bad, but I think a serious problem this book has is that it rushes through almost every single moment. In some ways that is a good thing, it gives a feeling of being caught up in time but on the other hand I think it could just benefit from just slowing down once in awhi [...]

Time travel through neural synapse firings. Interesting! Engaging writing, enjoyed the read. Starts off following Jack, whose epilepsy serves as a conduit for his initial trips through time. Just when the time traveling aspect gets interesting, the story begins to explore gender identity, via the various bodies the self travels into. The story picked up in speed after a few trips back, and more of the time traveling aspect was revealed. I'm interested to see what happens in #2! And to find out w [...]

TBH I don't know how I feel about this book. There were thing I liked and things I didn't. There wasn't really a plot (at least to me). The genres say lgbtia+ because Jack/Jacqueline is trans but I didn't really see it as trans. I was confused a lot. The time leaps weren't dated and weren't really clearly stated. I had to read a few paragraphs before I knew that J made a time leap. I did like the characters though. And there was an Indian, (view spoiler)[ who ended up being gay(hide spoiler)] wh [...]

I enjoyed this little time traveling tale! I have always been a sucker for time travel (Quantum Leap and Doctor Who!!) and this book didn't disappoint. What intrigued me was the genre swap that takes place when Jack goes back in time and in Jacqueline. The author takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster ride as Jack learns to navigate being a girl, gets used to being a girl, then has to go back to being Jack again. Not only that, but Jack figures out that he needs to stop a certain thing [...]

I knew this book – Everett’s first foray into long fiction – would be well-written but I had some hesitation about the genre (I’m not a huge sci-fi fan.) I read this book in less than two days. Jack, the protagonist, jumps back and forth between his body and Jacqueline’s. He must learn to juggle two lives and integrate his identities. The Unintentional Time Traveler is, at various points, sweet, exciting, anxiety-inducing, and funny. In this, the first of the Time Guardians series, Eve [...]

This was a super fun book about time travelling initially induced by seizures. Our protagonist is passionate and snarky, and all the side characters are wildly different from each other.The book moves along at a zippy pace, leaving no dull moments. But it starts to get a bit too fast for me around the 67% mark, and I'm a bit confused what happened in the climax. But I loved the epilogue with all my heart, and I was so happy to see our MC get what she wanted in the body which suited her best.

Loved this booka compelling journey through time and space with interesting, witty characters. I found the tone similar to John Green which is good for the author given Green's popularity. I recommend this to fans of Green or anyone who wants a descriptive adventure. I can't wait to read the sequels!

The first part of the book was tedious and then it got to the part about time travel which was a lot different from the many other time travel books that I have read and not in a good way!

I started two book challenges at the beginning of 2018. The how many books can you read in a year, and a 52 book challenge from #Bookfirst. One of the challenges was: A book written by a trans author so after consulting Dr. Google I came up with this one.I am a big fan of time travel. Quantum Leap is one of my all time favourite shows, and Back to the Future one of my most watched films.I was pleasantly surprised by this novel. Which makes me sound a bit glib. Jack lives in America in the 1980s [...]

If I could divide his book in half the first half would receive 5 stars. There you find young Jack accidently falling into the past into the body of a young woman, falling in love with a guy from that past, and when returned to the future, does everything in her power to return to him. That was a great story. Then came the 2nd half of the book and an explanation of his power, and the introduction of Travelers and Guardians and the confusing jumping in to to other times and other bodies and the d [...]

Jack starts to travel back in time during his seizures.  It takes a few times before he realizes what is going on.  Each time he is in the past for a longer period.  He gets dropped into a body of a girl in the 1920s named Jacqueline.  It is very Quantum Leap.The town Jacqueline lives in is being terrorized by a local minister.  Jack is being dropped into different points in time to try to save the town.  But everything he does changes the timeline.I enjoyed this book but it frustrated me.

Entertaining, though confusing, story of time travel. Flouts the old rules about not changing things when one travels back in time.

I really really wanted to like this book, because it has a lot going for it. Unfortunately, I only made it about halfway through before officially deciding to give up. I was unable to connect to any of the characters, which ultimately made me unable to get into the story.

This is one of those books that you start reading, waiting for something, and everything comes different.The obvious: Jack is a 15 year old boy who suffers from epilepsy, as well as his mother. However, the drugs appear to do it with different desired effect.His mother is told by his neurologist, there is a new research for people who have this disease. Something related to change brain waves. Jack is enrolled in this study. From there his life is not the same.More than researching his brainwave [...]

Better than the Ruby Red trilogy.The premise was very intriguing so I had to order this book from the US since it's not available in my country. I wasn't disappointed, although it took me a while to get into it.The story works very well in itself but is also expanded by LGBT aspects that make it even more interesting. A boy in a girls body in boys clothes has to hear comments about wearing boys clothes, or someone asks why he, a woman, is allowed to talk to a man in a certain manner. It's ironic [...]

This is one of my favourite old science fiction scenarios done well, the leaper. Jack Bishop is a boy in the 1980s with epilepsy, yet when he has episodes he finds himself in the body of Jacqueline, a girl from the 1920s. But when he returns to his original body he discovers his life has gone on without him.Within this McGuffin there are a lot of questions raised about identity, responsibility and who we really are. Yet, for all the moralising the answers are not always the easiest ones.My only [...]

Interesting in theory, but the grammar and pacing need a lot of work. Made the effort to write people of various ethnicities and disabilities, but representation seems shaky at times, especially in handling mental illness. Does have a fun narrator, though. And our main character's experiences as both male and female are interesting.A potentially interesting read for those interested in representations of gender, people with epilepsy, or time travel fans. If not invested in at least one of those, [...]

This is a great, maybe even brilliant idea, that didn't pan out as well as I'd hoped. More questions raised by the plot needed to be answered before the end, despite this being the first book in a series. Many events felt rushed, and some felt under-developed and unbelievable to me, the major one being the romance between Jacqueline and Lucas. I enjoyed the non-judgmental exploration of gender identity, but I wished it has been more fleshed out.
