One hour to rewrite the past . . .
For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn't there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents' death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She's tried everything, but the visions keep coming back.So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson's willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may change her past.
Who is this dark, mysterious, sympathetic guy, barely older than Emerson herself, who seems to believe every crazy word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he's around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should have happened?
Full of atmosphere, mystery, and romance, Hourglass merges the very best of the paranormal and science-fiction genres in a seductive, remarkable young adult debut.

Myra McEntire knows the words to every R&B hit of the last decade, but since she lives in Nashville, the country music capital of America, her lyrical talents go sadly unappreciated. She's chosen, instead, to channel her "mad word skills" into creating stories. She's an avid Doctor Who fan and will argue passionately about which incarnation is the best.

"A perfectly well-rounded book with paranormal, action and love triangles, this will keep you guessing until the surprising end. If you're a paranormal lover, you do not want to miss this one!" --Romantic Times Book Reviews
"Em is an entertainingly cheeky narrator and appealingly resilient heroine ... first-time author McEntire deftly juggles plot, characters and dialogue; her portrait of grief is particularly poignant."
" ... the story centers itself in Emerson's voice--by turns sardonic, world weary, ardent, and hopeful." --Publisher's Weekly
"Buffy for the time-traveling set." -- Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books
"Doctor Who in a YA package." -- MTV's Hollywood Crush
