Blurb from Goodreads: 

The boy Eden loves just saved her life. Now she must save his. 
To do so she must make a huge sacrifice. 
Eden can never see her friends or family again, as she travels a hundred years into the future. 
But the dangerous risk Ryan took to rescue Eden has been uncovered, and now Ryan faces an exile ...which will leave Eden separated from him - the one person she can't live without - and stuck in the future. She must fight to save both of them.

My Review:

2.5/5 stars

Ryan saved Eden's life but a cleaner has been sent from the future to investigate Travis's death. 
A series of events mean that both Ryan and Eden have to travel to the future where Ryan is put on trial and potentially faces being sent to a prison camp on the moon.

I can't actually decide whether or not I like this book. 
Parts of it were sweet but others were annoying. 
It wasn't particularly gripping and was slightly predictable. 
I did feel sorry for Eden being stuck in the future on her own while Ryan was on trial and thought she coped rather well. 
I liked the sciencey aspects and the fact that part of New York was underwater so people could go scuba diving there.

Overall this was an okay read.
