I started this book quite a while ago, and for some reason, it got lost in the shuffle and never finished. Boy, am I glad I circled back around to it.
Em is locked in a cell. She has no idea how long she’s been there. Maybe a few months? The next cell over is Finn, someone whose face she has not seen for just as long. What do the doctor and the director want from them? They basically take turns being beaten, and nothing they can tell those in charge makes any difference. How did they get here? And how can they escape?
What would you do if you discovered how to move back and forth through time? Would you do good? Would you choose to be selfish? Power hungry? What happens if your idea of what is important changes over time? What if it means that the people you love most – suffer most?
This complex tale of friendship, protecting those you love, and doing the right thing is a nail-biter down to the very end. The twists and turns it takes while the characters try to find the right course make your head spin. It shows how one good turn can be contorted into something ugly and catastrophic.
