A man obsessed with the mystery of his sister’s disappearance 20 years ago.
An accidental discovery that time travel is possible.
A chance to save his sister.
I really loved the premise for this book, and the story lived up to my expectations! The time-travel was fun, exciting, and unexpected. I enjoyed the main character’s drive and determination about finding his sister, and I loved how the story wrapped up!
The main character, Joe, is absolutely a wreck from the disappearance of his sister. He’s become a recluse and is about to lose his home. His life and family fell apart after Amy went missing. I enjoyed this distraught behavior in him in the beginning. It created such a character arc as he discovers his ability to time travel. I thought he was a good MC and I enjoyed his story from start to finish. There were a few other side characters that I really enjoyed as well. One, a record store owner, brings some light moments that made me smile a lot.
I liked Joe’s time travel situation. I really enjoy time travel because there are so many ways an author can take the story. This one had some fun rules that made the story really interesting and helped move the plot along.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book! It was hard for me to put aside, and when I wasn’t reading, I was wondering what Joe was up to!
