Future Shock by Elizabeth Briggs

I was given an ARC in exxchange of a an honest review.

Elena Martinez has hidden her eidetic memory all her life--or so she thinks. When powerful tech giant Aether Corporation selects her for a top-secret project, she can't say no. All she has to do is participate in a trip to the future to bring back data, and she'll be set for life.

Elena joins a team of four other teens with special skills, including Adam, a science prodigy with his own reason for being there. But when the time travelers arrive in the future, something goes wrong and they break the only rule they were given: do not look into their own fates.

Now they have twenty-four hours to get back to the present and find a way to stop a seemingly inevitable future from unfolding. With time running out and deadly secrets uncovered, Elena must use her eidetic memory, street smarts, and a growing trust in Adam to save her new friends and herself.

As a fan of Back to the future series I had no doubt about requesting this book.
And, lucky me, it was awesome.
Well written,full of intrigue and twists this book kept me in my feet, waiting for the punch. I couldn't put it down, went to sleep at 3 am, so I could finish soon.
I felt for them like if I was there too, running like a mouse in a labyrinth.

I think the romantic part could be bigger, but that´s my only complain.

Como uma fã da série De volta para o Futuro eu não pude deixar de solicitar esse livro no Netgalley. E, pra minha sorte, o livro foi maravilhoso.
Bem escrito, cheio de intrigas e reviravoltas, me manteve sempre alerta, esperando pelo próximo susto. Não pude deixar de lado, fui dormir às3 da matina pra poder acabar logo.
Eu sentia pelos personagens como se estivesse lá com eles, correndo como um ratinho de laboratório no labirinto.
Eu acho que a parte romântica poderia ser maior, mas essa é minha única queixa.
