“You have to kill him.”

Imprisoned in the heart of a secret military base, Em has nothing except the voice of the boy in the cell next door and the list of instructions she finds taped inside the drain.

Only Em can complete the final instruction. She’s tried everything to prevent the creation of a time machine that will tear the world apart. She holds the proof: a list she has never seen before, written in her own hand. Each failed attempt in the past has led her to the same terrible present-imprisoned and tortured by a sadistic man called the doctor while war rages outside.

Marina has loved her best friend James since the day he moved next door when they were children. A gorgeous, introverted science prodigy from one of America's most famous families, James finally seems to be seeing Marina in a new way, too. But on one disastrous night, James’ life crumbles apart, and with it, Marina’s hopes for their future. Now someone is trying to kill him. Marina will protect James, no matter what. Even if it means opening her eyes to a truth so terrible that she may not survive it. At least not as the girl she once was.

All Our Yesterdays is a wrenching, brilliantly plotted story of fierce love, unthinkable sacrifice, and the infinite implications of our every choice.

WHAT READERS ARE SAYING…

On GoodReads.com:

 
“You guys will want to read this book! Yes, the writing is that good. The premise is that good.”

 
“There are three elements I look for in a young adult novel: an exciting plot, compelling characters and a strong narrative voice. All Our Yesterdays has all three. The combination of sci-fi time travel elements, a heart-wrenching love triangle, gripping action sequences and a ‘Hunger Games-style’ political background provides something for every kind of reader and made it a book that I, personally, found difficult to put down.”

 
“Brilliant time-slip adventure that genuinely keeps you on the edge of your seat and desperate to find out what happens.”

REVIEW

Wow! Just, WOW! I am floored after reading this amazing book.
 
Terrill delivers a compelling read that kept me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. A brilliantly pieced together story that could have very easily become confusing, and even predictable, but never once was.
 
I loved the shift between characters, allowing the reader to see the vulnerable girl who loved so passionately, and the strong, but broken, girl who has lived through the devastation, countless times, and knows the only way to end it is to sacrifice her own heart in the process.
 
With thrilling plot twists and fascinating characters this story kept me guessing. Filled with plenty of suspense, action and heart-wrenching moments, the only thing that mattered to me was finishing this book. I had to know if Em and Finn would complete their mission in time, and if they did, would it change anything. And how, if they were successful, would their actions affect Marina, and even Finn. Would they "find" each other no matter what?
 
This book has been dubbed as Sci-fi, but I believe it will find a place in the hearts of many readers. Lovers of Dystopian, Fantasy, Suspense and Spy Thrillers, will lose themselves in this exciting story. I know I did, and I loved every second spent with Em and Finn in the fight for justice. I cannot wait to read the follow up to this story, I have no doubt it will be as exquisite as the first book!

CRISTIN TERRILL EARNS EARLY TOP NODS FOR YA DEBUT
Unpredictable time-travel thriller ‘All Our Yesterdays’ also undergoing big screen treatment

 

SILVER SPRING, Maryland – A literary blend of suspense, romance, government nefariousness and what reviewers call “time travel done right,” Cristin Terrill’s science fiction thriller All Our Yesterdays has been singled by the American Booksellers Association as the top YA debut to celebrate this fall.
 
 
Terrill’s highly anticipated novel releases in Europe from Bloomsbury UK, publisher of “Harry Potter,” in August. And on September 3, 2013, Disney-Hyperion launches All Our Yesterdays in the United States. The foreign rights have been sold into multiple other international territories.
 
 
Months before hitting the shelves, All Our Yesterdays is already creating major buzz with readers and moviegoers alike as Global Produce and Gold Circle Films have secured the screen rights for a movie adaptation. Behind the project is screenwriter Brian Miller, who penned the Rome, Sweet Rome screenplay for Warner Bros. as well as Dimension’s Apollo 18.
 
 
All Our Yesterdays tells the dynamic story of a girl who slips back in time to kill the boy she loves before he destroys the world – while at the same time, fighting her younger self, who refuses to let him go. As New York Times bestselling author Becca Fitzpatrick describes it, “Masterfully plotted and rich with emotion, All Our Yesterdays is possibly the most addictive book I’ve read this year.”
 
 
Terrill’s debut was selected as a Buzz Book for this year’s Book Expo America, and the author a featured speaker at the American Library Association’s 2013 conference and selected member of the Class 2K13 for debut YA authors.
 
 
Hot on the heels of her first novel, Terrill is already rolling up her sleeves to write a sequel.
