#BookADayUK 26: Clocks go back! Best book on time-travel


I’m out. I haven’t… wait. WAIT. I have read a book with time-travel in it! Hazzah! The 57 Lives of Alex Wayfare is a pretty decent book on time-travel, or some kind of form of time travel. It’s more like jumping spirits. This book was published by Strange Chemistry (RIP, I MISS YOU SO MUCH) and so, I don’t know if it is still for sale or what happened to the authors after the imprint folded. Sigh.

For as long as 17-year-old Alex Wayfare can remember, she has had visions of the past. Visions that make her feel like she’s really on a ship bound for America, living in Jamestown during the Starving Time, or riding the original Ferris wheel at the World’s Fair.

But these brushes with history pull her from her daily life without warning, sometimes leaving her with strange lasting effects and wounds she can’t explain. Trying to excuse away the aftereffects has booked her more time in the principal’s office than in any of her classes and a permanent place at the bottom of the social hierarchy. Alex is desperate to find out what her visions mean and get rid of them.




An obvious choice…
