Come Find Me Two Years Ago… Six words that propel ice-hockey-playing tomboy, Arizona, into an alternate dimension. She suddenly finds herself living the life of a glamorous cheerleader. She finds herself transported from her happy life with her dad to living with the mother she hates. Everyone knows her as Arizona Darley, but she isn’t. She is Arizona Stevens. As she struggles to find answers she is certain of two things — that her mother is somehow responsible, and that she wants to go back home to her real life. That’s until she meets Kellan…  
My Review: 

I was definitely loving Portal from the moment I started reading it! I want to get my hands on the rest of the series now (and will definitely be doing so when I finally catch up on all of my review books / eBooks).

Arizona (weird name, but beautiful!) finds herself in a different life when she leaves her SAT test in one car, and finds herself in another – her mom’s, but her mom’s from a different life. As confusing as this was for me at the beginning, it soon began to make sense as I continued to read on – that’s just the way it goes some times! 

I loved all of the characters, except Simila and Justin! There was no need for their behaviour! Okay, there was, it was part of the story…but I feel like I’d have liked them if it wasn’t for that happenings! I don’t know what it was about all the characters that I just loved, I just found them so easy to read and therefore get along with I suppose. Imogen’s world intrigued me from the start, but that’s not enough – the characters have to be well developed and interesting – and these were! I love Harry and Kellan, and I never had an issue with either. They’re both amusing and protective – both great characters.

It only took me 2 days of reading to finish this novel, and I’m not surprised – it really was a great read. Like I said, I’m going to try and get my hands on the rest of the series soon! I really need to know what happens next!
