Earth 101 – Time to Run is the debut novel from Emae Church. The first in the series, the story’s concept is pretty interesting, and the writing flows well. Jayne is one of the only people who remembers other teens who have been seemingly erased from existence. No one believes her, but Jayne determines to get to the bottom of the mystery of the missing girls. She also notices the handsome and mysterious boy in class and realizes that he may know more than he lets on. What has happened to these people, and why does Jayne remember them when no one else does?
The characters are unique and interesting, especially Jayne. She goes through a lot throughout the story, and I like that she never gives up. She’s determined and smart, and she handles shocking revelations and new experiences well. I love how dedicated she is in finding out what happened to her friends and that she is unrelenting when fighting for the things (and people) she believes in.
Other characters, though not as developed, are unique and intriguing as well. There are several characters who are so much more than they seem, and they show that people can change, grow, or hide their true feelings and intentions. Jayne and Aithen definitely struggle to identify who they can truly trust.
There are a lot of twists and turns, and the setting is not confined to Earth, which I found really interesting. Missing and unremembered teens, family tragedy, aliens, romance, new worlds, murderous threats, attempted murder, and more create a fast-paced read. There are some parts of the plot and characters that I wish were fleshed out a little more, but overall it’s a good start to the series. I’m curious to see what happens to Jayne and Aethin as the series continues.
I think this is a book that will appeal to readers who enjoy ya sci-fi romance with a bit of mystery. Thanks so much to Emae Church and Zooloo’s Book Tours for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
