Summary:

SOME STORIES CANNOT BE TOLD IN JUST ONE LIFETIME.

Harry August is on his deathbed. Again.

No matter what he does or the decisions he makes, when death comes, Harry always returns to where he began, a child with all the knowledge of a life he has already lived a dozen times before. Nothing ever changes.

Until now.

As Harry nears the end of his eleventh life, a little girl appears at his bedside. "I nearly missed you, Doctor August," she says. "I need to send a message."

This is the story of what Harry does next, and what he did before, and how he tries to save a past he cannot change and a future he cannot allow.

    I really enjoyed how thought provoking this book is.

  • Erica Rowan

    Fantastic!! Original and addicting. The ending made me want to stand and cheer out loud! Highly recommended.

  • Kelley Evans

    Part thriller and part psychological exploration, this book kept me engaged and curious from start to finish. The concept is fantastic. As a "linear" (i.e. someone with only a single life to live), it is fun to imagine a world where you can return to address your mistakes, learn more than you can imagine and live so many different lives. The relationships are well-drawn. I definitely recommend it!

  • Kim Brady

    Very enjoyable book. The narrating was excellent! I enjoyed the conflicting emotional relationship of Harry and Vincent; best friends and nemeses beautifully woven. The time traveling was fun and the many alterations of his lives kept it intriguing.

  • Tonya Morris

    I recommend this book to anyone interested in the theory of time travel. I love the idea of having numerous chances to undo your mistakes and grow from them. We watch Harry come into the world in the worst way and on his last journey save the planet.
