Ruby Red is a thrilling and humor-filled tale that includes time-traveling, romance, and a sassy protagonist in Gwen, a high-school girl who can see ghosts and suddenly is popping back in time-the gift her cousin, Caroline, was supposed to have. Gwen, totally unprepared for this legendary legacy, is suddenly thrown into a world that includes mystery, action, and poofy dresses from the past. There's a big problem to it all, however-she has to deal with Gideon, the only other time-traveler alive, and he's a big jerk, along with being the best looking guy she has 'ever seen in any century'.
An absolutely delightful novel, Kerstin Gier, along with the fabulous translator, Anthea Bell, has brought Ruby Red to America. Not only is it good, but its one of my favorites. The suspense and romance kept me flipping through it into the night, and I wasn't ever satisfied until I realized I was at the end, and even then, I was eager for the second. A good and fast read for reader's who enjoy historical fiction, romance, and action-it is absolutely a story that can be enjoyed by many teens.

I thought this one was amazing as well. Are the next books as good as Ruby Red?
