In Ninety Days in the 90s by Andy Frye, Darby is in her forties. After a broken engagement and an unsatisfactory job, she comes back to Chicago and assumes ownership of her uncle’s music store. Darby is deeply nostalgic for a time in the 1990s when she experienced great music, her most memorable romance, and recognized the potential for a three-woman band that blasted onto the music scene. She’d heard rumors about the Chicago Gray Line, a subway system that could take a traveler anywhere in the past after 1947, but she had stored these in her mind as folklore ... until a mysterious bracelet appeared. Using the bracelet, she discovers the Chicago Gray Line and travels back to 1996. Once there, ninety days are counted down from the display on her bracelet before she has to decide. Will she go back to the present with fond memories, or will she try to weather the new challenges of the time period and put her life on a new course?
Ninety Days in the 90s by Andy Frye was a trip to a recognizable past. The story concept was appealing to me because I became aware of the world during that era, and my CDs were stacked high with singers and bands from that time period. Also, who hasn’t thought of going back to a past where they were in constant contact with treasured friends and fell in love with a special person? To me, the references to bands and concerts in the story are more credible because Andy Frye has written for Rolling Stone magazine. This book will appeal to anyone with vivid memories of the music of the 1990s, and to those readers who want to take a glimpse into 1996 and early 1997.
