Imagine you got on a plane in NYC after a week with your grandparents and are flying back to St. Louis. Perhaps the biggest thing on your mind is whether your sorta boyfriend, Steve, will finally get around to kissing you. Then your world is turned upside down in a second. Your first inkling of something awry is when the guy sitting beside you can't hear the chatter between the pilot and the control tower. When you land, it's 2020, not 1995 as it should be. People your age are parents, technology is so much different, and your fourteen year old brother is 39 and has two kids.
This is Jenny Water's new reality and to compound matters, she learns what happened to her best friend and sorta boyfriend. It's a shocker, but not the biggest she has to face. Everyone has their own theory about what happened during the flight, some think it's a huge hoax, the FBI is scrambling to contain rumors while testing the plane and passengers, and everyone on the plane is hounded by reporters.
Following Jenny as she tries to make sense of it all, deal with heartache, and a budding romance with some unusual qualities, not to mention a huge decision she must make at the end, make this an extremely satisfying story. It's a dandy choice for any library to consider. ( )

Your Life Has Been Delayed is a cute YA Contemporary novel with a time travel twist. That premise is super intriguing!

The story pacing is a bit slow, but I found it picked up after a few certain plot points got ironed out and weren't consistently repeated, glazed over, or withheld because of protecting Jenny.
There is just a hint of romance which was a nice touch, but not really necessary.
With the amount of characters in the book, I found them all fairly well fleshed out (all the important details touched on), but I really would've loved to have gotten more depth into the lives of Jenny's friends and family.

An overall enjoyable read that's very heavy on the YA side as Jenny navigates her teenage life in a new time period with all the ups and downs.

Thank you to Bloomsbury YA for the ARC to read and honestly review. ( )

This story has a fascinating premise reminiscent of the TV show Manifest: 17-year old Jenny gets on a flight from St. Louis to New York in the late 1990s, and lands 25 years into the future. She finds her parents aged, her little brother a grown man, and her boyfriend and best friend married with 18-year old twins. Jenny and her fellow passengers are faced with a media storm of interest as well as a barrage of skeptics who call their existence a hoax. She also has to navigate starting her senior year amidst the scrutiny and complications from a new world of social media, while also falling for the distressingly attractive son of her former flame and best friend. A very fun read! ( )
