Families are complex. We are either born into one or create our own. Love is complex. We either embrace it or ignore it. This author creates a book that explores both these issues. It could have been a heavy book with one tear shedding after another. But this author takes this heavy idea and turns it upside down, and that’s why I loved it. The idea of time travel fascinates me because there are things in my life I’d like to change, but I know it would change who I am now and what my life is like. The author takes a sci-fi trope and gives it an emotional umbrella that pulled me in from the very beginning. The characters were very well-developed and read like people I know if my own life. Her dialog was completely realistic and served to move the plot to the end. I stayed up way too late reading this one, but I just needed to know how it ended. When I finished this book I had a hard time reentering my real life. It gave me all the feels.
