Six months ago Aether Corporation sent Elena, Adam, and three other recruits on a trip to the future where they brought back secret information–but not everyone made it back to the present alive. Now Elena’s dealing with her survivor’s guilt and trying to make her relationship with Adam work. All she knows for sure is that she’s done with time travel and Aether Corporation.
But Aether’s not done with her–or Adam, or fellow survivor Chris. The travelers on Aether’s latest mission to the future have gone missing, and Elena and her friends are drafted into the rescue effort. They arrive in a future that’s amazingly advanced, thanks to Aether Corporation’s reverse-engineered technology. The mission has deadly consequences, though, and they return to the future to try to alter the course of events.
But the future is different yet again. Now every trip through time reveals new complications, and more lives lost–or never born. Elena and Adam must risk everything–including their relationship–to save their friends.
The second book in the New York Times bestselling Future Shock trilogy.

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.

PLEASE WELCOME ELIZABETH TO BOOKHOUNDS YA
1. What is on your nightstand?
A Court Of Mist And Fury by Sarah J Maas – I’m finally reading this series and I’m loving it!
2. What author would you totally fan?
3. What makes you cringe?
Ignorance and intolerance
4. Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
I do plot out each scene in a book before I write, but often with just a one or two sentence description. Then, when I’m writing the scene, things often surprise me or go in a different direction than I originally planned.
5. Is there a word you love to use?
I use “just” way too often and have to go back during revisions and remove a ton of them. It’s my favorite word!
