Kirkus calls out FUTURE SHOCK’s “refreshing swap”!

FutureShock_CVRThanks to Kirkus Review for another great review of Future Shock by Elizabeth Briggs. I’m particularly chuffed by this part:

The author refreshingly swaps teen-lit gender stereotypes in the […] romance: she’s the edgy, brooding girl with the heart of gold, and he’s the adorable, inexperienced good guy.

They also go on to call it “absorbing”! Woot!

I have to say, I love how Liz reversed the gender tropes in this novel, and included diversity in a authentic way that seems to truly echo a realistic contemporary story, albeit one with time travel.

Please join me in congratulating Liz on Twitter, and check out the sidebar for a countdown to the release day.
