In this sweet young adult love story, sixteen-year-old art nerd Aeon Still is the unwilling subject of a documentary about average American teenagers. She must quickly come to terms with the identity of her mystery parent, Chronos, the god of time, the realization that she wields extraordinary power, and the trials of keeping the town safe all while hiding her secret from a camera crew. Her life is further complicated by the interest of the enchanting new guy in town, Alex, who harbors a secret of his own.

This really was a very sweet story.  Though a bit different from anything I've read before, which is good!  I wanted different.  The characters of Aeon and Alex were very lovable.  Aeon was very quirky and a bit sarcastic.  Anya did a great job of making her very likable.  And Alex was great with his air of mystery in the beginning and then just enough struggle to make you question is he friend or foe?

There were a few places in the book with typos. Like at one point when Aeon is blushing, the line was something about "Her cheeks turning pink." but it said "Her cheeks turned pick"  Just to give an example.  But it was never enough to cause confusion and take away from my enjoyment of the story. 

So if you're looking for something a little different give it a try.  It was worth the read!
