KIRKUS REVIEW

What would you do if you had to live one of the worst days of your life over and over again? After witnessing his younger brother Mark die in a horrific accident, Justin finds himself utterly isolated—from his friends, his girlfriend and his family. His only companion is an unceasing, unrelenting voice in his head. One year to the day of Mark’s death, things go indescribably wrong for Justin, and in a fit of despair, he seeks to end his own life, only to wake up in that fateful day again and again. This dark, frenetically paced psychological novel is sure to mesmerize readers, as they follow Justin in his maddening struggle to distinguish between reality and illusion, and his struggle with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. Morgenroth’s writing is meticulous, to the point where her words are economical; a welcome change after many of the epic works for teens on the market. An ingenious twist at the end will surely leave its reader stunned. An electrifying read. (Fiction. YA)
