A fun Young Adult book about a teen who discovers she has a special time-traveling gene. The best read I've found recently that is funny and just plain fun!
Gwyneth doesn’t believe she is special; that would be her cousin. But then she discovers she's the one with the time-traveling gene and is whisked into a family adventure across time.

This one was just plain fun. Gwen has a great sense of humor, and I loved being introduced to time travel with her. It definitely feels like the first book in a series, though, because I was left with a sense that the story is only beginning...

SummaryAdd a Summary
A teenage girl named Gwen on a mission to travel back in time to save a little bit of history as this thread runs through the female part of the family and problems at school.
Gwyneth Shepherd's sophisticated, beautiful cousin Charlotte has been prepared her entire life for traveling through time. But unexpectedly, it is Gwyneth, who in the middle of class takes a sudden spin to a different era!
Gwyneth must now unearth the mystery of why her mother would lie about her birth date to ward off suspicion about her ability, brush up on her history, and work with Gideon--the time traveler from a similarly gifted family that passes the gene through its male line, and whose presence becomes, in time, less insufferable and more essential. Together, Gwyneth and Gideon journey through time to discover who, in the 18th century and in contemporary London, they can trust.
