Meet A Time Traveler's Theory Of Relativity!

He believes in science, but only magic can help his mom.

Twelve-year-old Finn is used to people in his family disappearing. His twin sister, Faith, drowned when they were three years old. A few months ago, his mom abandoned him and his dad with no explanation. Finn clings to the concrete facts in his physics books—and to his best friend, Gabi—to ward off his sadness. But then his grandmother tells him a secret: the women in their family are Travelers, able to move back and forth in time. Finn's mom is trapped somewhere in the timeline, and she's left Finn a portal to find her. But to succeed, he'll have to put his trust in something bigger than logic.

It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with all things time travel.

Here are my top five favorite time travel novels (and one novella) to get you in the mood for some serious tessering. They are not in any particular order (asking me to order them would be cruel so please don’t make me).

 

  1. Jack Finney’s Time and Again – First published in 1970, but like all good time travel novels, it’s timeless. It’s particularly good if you also happen to love New York City as Finney made the Big Apple a major character. I first read this on my bus commute up and down Fifth Avenue. The time travel was so believable I almost expected to see horses and hoop skirts when I peered out the window.
  1. Octavia Butler’s Kindred – I read it in one sitting over a weekend. This is a book I didn’t discover until I was in my twenties. First published in 1979, it’s about an African American woman who accidentally finds herself being pushed back and forth between her modern life in L.A. to a life with her enslaved ancestors on a Maryland plantation. It’s a riveting and painful read that I think it should be part of every high school curriculum.
  2. Charles de Lint’s Timeskip – This is a novella I read when I was a teenager in 1989. It stuck with me as the very first time travel story that made me feel that it was both entirely possible and magical at the same time. As the years passed, I forgot the title and author, but never forgot the story and tried valiantly to remember it for many years. I became a fan of de Lint’s other novels in the years after and read many of his works before finding Timeskip again. When I sat down with it, I had no idea it was the novella I had been looking for, but I was instantly pulled back to my teenage bedroom with my blue flowered comforter and my favorite yellow mug filled with piping hot herbal tea. It’s the closest I’ve come to real time travel.
  1. Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife – The very first time travel book I read where traveling was a genetic condition. My novel owes a great debt of inspiration to Niffenegger because I loved this notion and decided I wanted to make mine mitochondrial. (In A Time Traveler’s Theory of Relativity the ability is passed from mother to daughter.) The emotion in this novel is palpable. Do yourself a favor and never watch the movie. It can’t compete.
  2. Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time – What list would be complete without it? This book meant everything to me as a twelve-year old girl and it still does. I own a signed first edition. It was the book that told me it was okay to be the heroine and I credit it with empowering me to pursue my first career in technology.

The cover is okay. The synopsis, however, sounds so much fun to read with time travel, high-stakes, and suspense.
