When I began reading this book, I had no clue what was going on. But the author's writing style was riveting and pulled me in. It made me want to keep reading to find out what was going on. It took some time to understand the story, but it didn't matter because I was enjoying the writing in itself.
This story is on the theme of time and what would happen if someone went back in time to change a horrible event. And ultimately how that change would not be worth it as everything else would change as a result.
I found this to be a fast read although there is a lot of intelligent thought and many big words throughout. I always find stories about time fascinating. This book deals quite a bit with the loss of a parent which could be an emotional topic, but there was a lot of humor as well.
Many parts of this book reminded me of Roald Dahl in their wackiness. But to me they made the story more interesting.
Would I recommend this book? YES. For grades 4 and up. I think middle school students would enjoy this as well.
