...Before You Leap by Les Lynam

...Before You Leap is a hilarious fish-out-of-water story about a visitor from the future meeting up with an ancestor in 1995. With great high school banter and as a fun throwback to 1995 this book kept me entertained. I particularly liked the 90's references because, like the main character, Sean, I was also a 16 year old teen in the 90's. 
Since Sean's descendant "dumbed" down his explanations of the time travel mechanics for Sean there were a lot of great analogies used to support the sci-fi aspects of this novel. 
The book's overall tone is light and wistful, but it also has its philosophical moments centered around what the ramifications of altering the past might be. I had a great time with this one!
