Summary And Reflection Of Both Sides Of Time By Caroline B. Cooney

1387 words - 6 pages

For the Third Quarter SSR Project I chose the book Both Sides Of Time by Caroline B. Cooney. I settled on this fiction book not only because I’ve read all three books in Cooney’s series Time Travelers Quartet, but it just so happens to be my favorite out of all of them. This book is gripping to me because of the events happening in the book. A hopeless romantic going back in time, involved in two love triangles in two different centuries, then forced to leave one that she loves either way. I relish reading any kind of love stories, but I especially enjoyed this one because of the twisted storylines.
This book starts off simple in the beginning then surely escalates. Annie Lockwood, the main character is a typical teenage girl who just got out of school for the summer. Her boyfriend Sean isn't the romantic type at all. As she goes to Stratton Point where Sean is, to tell him that the party at the beach for the beginning of summer will start soon and she wanted him there with her. While he was working on a car, she walks into the old Stratton Mansion and looks around and all of a sudden she feels a falling feeling, like an earthquake almost, and then it was like only half of her was there. She could hear playing music, she even saw sun coming through the windows, and then bumped into someone. It was Hiram Stratton, Jr.. When he approaches her, she’s frightened, then Annie runs out of the house, and gets onto her bicycle and rides away. Finally, Strat was able to catch up with Annie and they went to the beach and sat there. That was where Annie had learned what year it was and they learned each other's names. Harriet Ranleigh was in the mansion in a tower, spying on Anna Sophia and Strat. She was angry and jealous when she saw the two being so open with each other.That day a servant, Matthew, had been murdered. That evening there was supposed to be a party. At the party, Hiram Stratton, Strat's father told Strat to stop fooling around with Ms. Lockwood and to go spend time with Harriet. Strat’s father had always wanted Strat to marry Harriet. Of course, Strat ignored what his father had told him and stayed with Annie the whole time. Devonny Stratton, Strat's younger sister called the police because she felt bad for Matthew's family and wanted to know who killed the kind servant and why. Annie and Strat still kept going on cute, cheesy dates, but never kissed. The next week, in the library, Mr. Rowwels proposed marriage to Harriet and she accepted. She thought that now that Ms. Lockwood had Strat's eyes only for on her, she wouldn’t have chance on marrying who she loved, which was Hiram Stratton, and thought that marriage to someone she didn't love would be better than absolutely no marriage at all. Mr. Rowwels turned out to be Mathew's murderer and Annie ended up going back to her own time, in 1995. There, she tells her mother that her father is cheating on her. Then poor Annie realizes, in the 19th century, Strat is doing the same thing to...
