Subway Love is characterized by many "what if's". What if Laura's parents hadn't gotten divorced? What if Laura and her brother were late to meet their dad at the train station?

In a whirlwind, time-travel filled romance that explores spirituality and the complex nature of time, Laura and Jonas must compete against all odds and fall in love in the only space possible: a subway car. 

Opinion: 

I think Subway Love is fresh and new. While I do not always love teenage romance, this book is a clever and fascinating take on two popular topics: teen romance and time-travel. 

I love the rich and well-developed characters. Without interesting back stories or cute, awkward dialogue, I may not have liked the story as much as I did. 

My only qualm about Subway Love is the format in the beginning. Before Jonas and Laura's storylines intersect, I think the cuts bewteen points of view are hasty and truncated. I would have liked to read a little more about one character before switching to another. 

Besides the formatting bit, I have no other problems with Subway Love. I would recommend it to young adults who enjoy magical realism and romance, and are looking for a quick read.
