Ruby Red, by Kersten Gier

This was good, and I suppose the closest I've ccome to reading steampunk- which still isn't very close then lol.
Gwyneth Shepard is more than surprised when it turns out that she, rather than her perfectly prepared cousin Charlotte, carries the family time-travel gene. Lots of confusing plot business, and it was translated from German, and seems to have lost a lot on the way, but at the same time, strangely enjoyable.
My main issue was that Gwyneth kept being remarkably, startlingly stupid, and that got really annoying.
