Between hitting the books twenty four/seven, having too
many commitments, and balancing a frantic college schedule,
Sabrina can't remember the last time she had any fun. When
Sabrina casually wishes she could go back to her less complicated
high school life, an eavesdropping garden gnome grants her
wish. Trouble is, high school isn't quite how Sabrina remembered.
And of course, there's a glitch. When Sabrina landed in the
past, her teenage self was thrown into a completely unfamiliar
future. If these two Sabrinas can't find a way to communicate
across more than a few time zones and locate the gnome, they'll
be stuck - forever...
the core of Now and Again is a relatively simple premise
- Sabrina stuck in the past, her past, with no way
of getting back to her future. I couldn't help thinking
of the excellent Back to the Future trilogy while reading
back into the education system should be a doddle. But preparing
those spells (which, back in the 21 Century, Sabrina can acquire
ready packaged) is not as easy as she'd remember it being.
And how does the other, young, Sabrina cope with the alien
environment that she now finds herself in? How would you cope?
The only slight problem with this plot twist is that the older
Sabrina isn't really that much older than her younger version
anyway. A larger age gap would have provided many more problems
and comical situations - but the writers cannot be blamed
who has been following this series won't be disappointed.
Now and Again is a fun book which slots well in to
the Sabrina universe.
lesson for us all then... Be careful what you wish for - especially
when there are gnomes lurking in the vicinity.
