This book definitely highlights the importance of spending time with loved ones before it's too late.

Thanks for reading! :D

Post by Karen0823 »

I often find myself regretting the fact that I didn't ask more questions for the benefit of hearing the life stories of my parents and grandparents. Now I can only imagine what their lives were like as I try to fill in the gaps of the unknown. What a treat to be able to travel back in time to relive their experiences. This sounds like a great read. Thanks for the awesome review.

This is a book I might like adding to my library. The plot is interesting, I specifically think the angle of stepping back in time is fascinating. Fine review!

Sounds like a great book. Appreciating people especially relatives is important. More so because we at times take them for granted. If they are older than us, we may forget they passed the same experiences like we are, and can give us a valuable lesson that will save us an agony, just in case we are going through a difficulty. Nice review, thanks.

I agree with Miriam that this book is like the Back to the Future movie! And i always loved books that leaves me feeling nostalgic and has character development. Good job on the review Amagine!

A freak accident that whisks the hero back in time and teaches him important lessons? Sounds good! Not my usual read, but the premise intrigues me. Thank you for the nice review!

Whew. What an amazing review. This book seems really great for all ages, but particularly though provoking for teenagers and parents.
