**A Library Journal Selection**
A teenage time traveler accidentally takes her secret crush back in time. Awkward.
Casey Donovan has issues: hair, height and uncontrollable trips to the 19th century! And now this --she's accidentally taken Nate Mackenzie, the cutest boy in the school, back in time. Awkward.

Protocol pressures her to tell their 1860 hosts that he is her brother, and when Casey finds she has a handsome, wealthy (and unwanted) suitor, something changes in Nate. Are those romantic sparks or is it just "brotherly" protectiveness?

When they return to the present, things go back to the way they were before: Casey parked on the bottom of the rung of the social ladder and Nate perched high on the very top. Except this time her heart is broken. Plus, her best friend is mad, her parents are split up, and her younger brother gets escorted home by the police. The only thing that could make life worse is if, by some strange twist of fate, she took Nate back to the past again.

Which of course, she does.***For fans of young adult time travel, romance and historical fiction.

From the Author:

Clockwise will always have a special place in my heart. It was the first book I published as an independent and I'm so grateful that my readers love it as much as I do. Thank you!

From the Inside Flap:

An Interview with Elle Strauss:
What inspired you to write a young adult time travel novel?
The idea actually started as a dream, only instead of a cute boy, I took back a talking cat! I've always been fascinated with history and the idea of what it would be like to visit a time in the past. I loved the absolutely brilliant Back to the Future movies. My first attempt involved a time machine, and the whole effort wasn't that good, but I did come away with some reusable ideas. I knew I wanted to write young adult, and at the time, paranormal was really taking off, so I gave my character a "gift". No time machines necessary! 
Why did you choose the pre- American civil war era as the moment in time your main character, Casey Donovan, goes back in time?
I wrote the first draft of CLOCKWISE after moving back to Canada from Boston. I lived in a suburb just outside of Cambridge for a year and took in all the historic sites. As one of the oldest cities in America, it holds a lot of history. I wanted to explore the themes of freedom and civic duty alongside of the angst that goes along with teen romance. The civil war was an interesting back drop to contrast what was going on in Casey's present.
The Clockwise Series isn't a long story arc comprised of many books, but rather a collection of stories involving your protagonist Casey Donovan, with a detour in book 3 with an alternate character, Adeline Savoy. Why did you do that?
When I wrote CLOCKWISE,  I had meant for it to be a stand alone book. Then I thought I'd like to stay in the time travel world, but introduce new characters, which is what I did. Casey meets Adeline Savoy at the end of Clockwise before moving to Hollywood and getting pulled into the drama found in the glamorous Hollywood of the 1950s.
What I didn't expect was a demand from my fans for more of Nate and Casey! (I don't know why this surprised me :)). I had discarded a story thread while writing book 1 and it turned out to be a main thread for the sequel ClockwiseR. Book 2 is a separate, complete story arc with Nate and Casey as leads along with her brother Timothy.
My readers made it clear that, though they liked Adeline, they loved Casey. When I began the next book in the collection, Counter Clockwise, I knew I needed to include Adeline to create some continuity. Casey and Adeline's worlds collide in an unexpected way with tumultuous consequences, especially when it comes to Casey's relationship with Nate.
The series ends with Clockwork Crazy - and things are super crazy for Casey, just as the title indicates.
