Future Shock (Future Shock #1) by @lizwrites #BookReview

 
What do you do when the future is too late, and the present is counting down to an inevitable moment?

Elena Martinez has street smarts, the ability for perfect recall, and a deadline: if she doesn’t find a job before she turns eighteen, she’ll be homeless. But then she gets an unexpected offer from Aether Corporation, the powerful Los Angeles tech giant. Along with four other recruits—Adam, Chris, Trent, and Zoe—Elena is being sent on a secret mission to bring back data from the future. All they have to do is get Aether the information they need, and the five of them will be set for life. It’s an offer Elena can’t refuse.

But something goes wrong when the time travelers arrive in the future. And they are forced to break the only rule they were given—not to look into their own fates. Now they have twenty-four hours to get back to the present and find a way to stop a seemingly inevitable future—and a murder—from happening. But changing the timeline has deadly consequences too. Who can Elena trust as she fights to save her life?

The first book in an unforgettable series about rewriting your destiny in the city of dreams.

I finish this book in about a day and it was fairly good.  It did have its boring parts where it totally almost lost me. But it wrapped me back up into the story a few chapters later.  I do wish it would have had more to it. Im not sure what I'm talking about but it just felt like it had something missing. The characters were great but I really only eve connected to Elena, Adam, and Zoe.  I really didn't click with the others.  The plot was well paced for the most part. But the story itself just felt like it was missing something that I just can't put my finger on.

I will be reading book two which I'm starting right after I finish this review. I am wondering what will happen in book two since this one ended and didn't leave us with any real cliffhangers.
