Many thanks to Tracy Fenton and Compulsive Readers for my spot on this Blog Tour.

This was an intriguing tale of physics and life. Arlo Knott had a rare ability, he could undo time-space continuum. He could go back in time and correct his mistakes. This started with a few seconds in the past until it moved on to greater lengths of time. And this was his life story as he learned how time and universes really worked. And the role he played in that.

Heather Child has written a thought provoking concept based on a single line – what if we could have an undo button? How would we use it? I liked how Arlo’s character had developed over the pages. She showed me his abilities and his mind frame at every age starting from when he was 13, when he lost his mum.

Power is heady and when such a power made you rich and a savior, you bet it would be used for personal gains. Arlo did that, he was selfish and greedy. He gambled and womanized. He became a magician, the Great Arlo. But he soon joined the police and started saving people. But it was all done for personal glory.

Along with him, his psysicist sister Erin and her girlfriend Nina and his love Sabra had a monumental part to play in his character development and understanding the physics behind it. He was not a likable character, but down the pages, I liked how he grew up to understand the repercussion of his abilities. He tried to correct some of them. His main motto in life was Save Sabra, his love. But did he really save her?

Child’s writing kept the story pretty gripping. With such an ability, I had to know the truth behind it and where Arlo’s life would finally land. The book started with Part 6 to end in an explosive finale of part 1. And the end reveal just took my breath away. Past and future were the same, and and the way the author has weaved them in, you have to read this book to believe it! Brilliant!! Definitely a different story.

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher Orbit Books, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

What if your life had an ‘undo’ button?

Arlo Knott discovers he can rewind time – just by a minute or two – enough to undo any mistake, say the right thing or impress his friends with his uncanny predictions…

But second chances aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. As wonderful as his new life is, a mistake in Arlo’s traumatic childhood still haunts him and the temptation to undo, undo and keep undoing is too much to resist.

  1. Wonder what I would do when I would have such a power🤔 There’s certainly a few things that I would maybe end up doing…on the other hand, I might just leave things the way they are because well things might end up even messier than they are lol.
    Sounds like a great read though! Wonderful review again! 😘❤️

  2. Interesting concept. I’m sure lots of us would say we would use that undo-button but I’m sure the book will make us think twice… and be happy with the way things are because nothing can ever be perfect, right? Great review Shalini!

  3. Second chances happen all the time, but an undo button? the chance to redo parts of your life? That does indeed open new possibilities and an interesting take on life. I wish the main character was setting out to make a better world, but then I guess there wouldn’t have been much of a story to it.

Awesome to see you here. Let's chat.
