    DescriptionJackson Meyer is hiding a secret. He can time-travel. But he doesn't know how he does it, how to control it or what it means. When Jackson, and his girlfriend Holly, find themselves in fatal danger, Jackson panics and catapaults himself two years into his past, further than he's ever managed before, and this time he can't find a way back to the future. All the rules of time-travel he's experienced so far have been broken and Jackson has no choice but to pretend to be his younger self whilst he figures out a solution. Jackson is tearing himself apart with guilt and frustration, wondering if Holly survived. He's also become the target of an unknown enemy force and it seems even his dad is lying to him. Jackson is racing against time to save the girl he loves, but to do that he must first discover the truth about his family and himself. And stay alive.

    Review quote
    "I have seen the future and it is Jackson Meyer! I loved Julie Cross's engrossing and engaging TEMPEST. If I could time-jump, I'd read the sequel yesterday at the very latest." --Nancy Holder, New York Times bestselling author of the CRUSADE series "Julie Cross's thrilling debut is brimming with excitement, romance, and intrigue. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough!" --Beth Revis, New York Times-bestselling author of ACROSS THE UNIVERSE "Jackson Meyer is a 19-year-old Upper East Sider with a loving and loyal girlfriend, a brilliant and funny best friend and an unexpected and exciting new talent. Jackson can suddenly "jump" back and forth in time. Cross takes readers on a thrilling ride as Jackson struggles to harness his abilities in a desperate attempt to learn the truth about who he is and, even more importantly, who he can trust. The characters are...complex and distinct, they will work their way into readers' hearts and stay with them long after the book is finished. Equal parts adventure, romance, science fiction...readers will turn the last page and find themselves wishing they could "jump" to the future and read the sequel."--KIRKUS REVIEWS, starred review "Debut author Cross launches a trilogy with an exciting and complex page-turner about difficult choices. Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer can travel in time, but he's no Doctor Who--he can only make short jumps backward, and he can't change anything. It's all harmless experimentation until his girlfriend, Holly, is shot when two gunmen attempt to kidnap him. Panicked, Jackson jumps back two years and gets stuck there. The consequences of unprepared time travel and Jackson pretending to be his 17-year-old self are amusing, but as he explores his life and pursues Holly (now his girlfriend-to-be), the already gripping story escalates. Jackson discovers his father's secret life with a shadowy government agency called Tempest, and father and son become tangled with violent rival time tra
