How can a 400 year-old diary that was brought to America by John White, the Governor of Sir Walter Raleigh’s Lost Colony of 1587, contain Beatles’ song lyrics?
And what does Elwood, a college freshman who believes he’s an extraterrestrial, have to do with it?
And how does Erica, the beautiful daughter of the U.S. Air Force’s Chief Investigator of UFO’s, make this connection while she’s exacting revenge on Elwood for embarrassing her father on a television gameshow called IT’S ACADEMIC?
And how does 1580’s London’s John White’s band The Knavels change England’s colonializations plans? Interplanetary sparks fly in this Sci-Fi romantic comedy between Elwood and Erica as they discover what changes the space-time continuum, and what they must do in order to guarantee that the United States of America actually happens.
Getting the answers to these questions makes this a ‘can’t put down’ kind of story.
This book was a pleasant surprise for me. The rhythm of the story telling, and the choice of words throughout kept me smiling. The pop culture references came in unexpected places and were always amusing. Even the juvenile antics of the characters were fun. I believe the author could write the nutritional information on the back of a cereal box and I would find it entertaining.
