Waterfall takes a 21st-century girl, Gabriella, and mysteriously places her in medieval Italy. Gabi’s journey is unexpected and exciting! While the title might be misleading, you won’t be disappointed when you’re introduced to this teenage girl who’s grown up with archeologist parents learning how to wield a sword. Finding herself in the fourteenth century, Gabi literally lands in the middle of a battle, she meets a knight-prince, and her summer has only begun.

From K.'s list on teen adventures for an escape.

Another time travel novel, this particular book takes readers on an adventure to 14th century Italy. The vehicle for time travelling is unique and the setting is also unique. Once again, the reader is on the edge of his or her seat as the character is plunged into danger, always wondering if the character will survive and stay in the Middle Ages or return to the present.

From Jody's list on time-traveling back to the past.
