Praise for Yesterday:

"Sci-fi thrillers are hot right now, and Yesterday does not disappoint. . . . Slow-building suspense and heart-pounding action help keep readers engaged." --School Library Journal (starred review)

"A vivid infusion of 1980s culture gives this near-future dystopia an offbeat, Philip K. Dick aura. . . . Fans of the Smiths, Depeche Mode, Scritti Politti--this one's for you." --Kirkus Reviews

"Yesterday is a compelling novel that will take up permanent residence in your mind and haunt you, continually leaving you suspended in its spell until the very last page. Martin's ability to manipulate the laws of time and space to create a fantastical fictional world is exceptional. . . . Not to be missed by fans of romances, apocalyptic tales, action, and science fiction." --National Post

"C.K. Kelly Martin's novel has all the makings of good speculative fiction fused with a nostalgic nod to the music scene of the 1980s. Martin writes of a bleak future that is reminiscent of Aldous Huxley's dystopian classic Brave New World. . . . The love story that develops along with the open ending leaves the reader with a sense that this story is not over." --VOYA

"There's a good deal of charm in Freya and Garren's relationship and the fleshed-out supporting cast (particularly Freya's mother and her classmates), as well as some well-written action sequences (and one intensely erotic scene) late in the book." --Publishers Weekly

"A prologue gives just enough foreknowledge to tantalize readers, and the surprise ending ties everything together satisfyingly. Teen readers will find much to discuss in this thought-provoking story." --Children's Literature
