    The China Garden by Liz Berry (Jen-the-Librarian)
    Jen-the-Librarian: Though not a time travel book like THE YEARBOOK, there's the element of fate/destiny, magical realism with a preternatural love.

Maybe it wasn't the strongest writing (the jump to love seemed unnaturally quick), but I enjoyed the plot and characters so much. It was a quick, fun read, and you have to suspend disbelief for a time travel book. It had a similar feel to THE CHINA GARDEN by Liz Berry. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 144058897X, Hardcover)

Misfit teen Lola Lundy has every right to her anger and her misery. She's failing in school, living in a group home, and social workers keep watching her like hawks, waiting for her to show signs of the horrible mental illness that cost Lola's mother her life. Then, one night, she falls asleep in a storage room in her high school library, where she's seen an old yearbook--from the days when the place was an upscale academy for young scholars instead of a dump. When Lola wakes, it's to a scene that is nothing short of impossible. Lola quickly determines that she's gone back to the past--eighty years in the past, to be exact. The Fall Frolic dance is going full blast in the gym, where Lola meets the brainy and provocative Peter Hemmings, class of '24. His face is familiar, because she's seen his senior portrait in the yearbook. By night's end, Lola thinks she sees hope for her disastrous present: She'll make a new future for herself in the past. But is it real? Or has the major mental illness in Lola's family background finally claimed her? Has she slipped through a crack in time, or into a romantic hallucination she created in her own mind, wishing on the ragged pages of a yearbook from a more graceful time long ago?

Has teenaged misfit Lola Lundy slipped through a crack in time to 1924, just in time for the high school Fall Frolic dance, and where she makes an instant connection with the brainy and provocative Peter Hemmings, or is she having a romantic hallucination related to her family's background of mental illness?… (more)
