Here, There & Everywhere by Chris Roberson

Guest Author - Laura Lehman

Roxanne Bonaventure is given a mysterious gift when she stumbles upon an old woman dying in the woods near her boarding school; a bracelet that fits itself to her wrist. With the bracelet she is able to travel through space and time, not only in her own worldline, but also in alternate worldlines. Once she masters its use with the help of her scientist father, she sets off exploring, sometime visiting the lives of her heroes and sometimes experimenting with different worldlines.

Roxanne is a great character. She has a strong and spunky personality that makes her instantly likable. For example when she meets a “time cop” of sorts she does what seems completely realistic. She laughs about the ridiculous name of his organization, the Chrono Defense Corps. Beneath her sense of humor, though we can tell she is painfully lonely, which is emphasized when she sees an alternate version of herself who has married and has a child.

There is a disjointed feel throughout the book and I often wondered if it was purposely done. Often the chapters seemed to have little connection other than Roxanne’s presence. By the end of the novel, everything falls into place and I see why certain adventures were included. The final chapter is the best in the book and explains the origin of the bracelet and solves Roxanne’s loneliness.

My Recommendation
Here, There & Everywhere is a wonderful novel to read. Roberson added many pop culture references that made me laugh. Remember this one when you’re looking for some laid-back summer reading.

Here, There & Everywhere is available at Amazon.com
