Ever since discovering her ability to rewind time seven years ago, Chloe has been reaching—for a worthy use of her ability, for redemption from her past, and for the kind of validation she’ll never find as long as she has to keep this secret.

By the time she’s sixteen, Chloe has decided that rewinding is not a gift at all, but punishment for her part in the tragedy that ha

What a fun ride! This wasn't a romance (which is my usual), but it was so well done. I'd highly recommend it for tweens and teens, especially if they don't like the mushy stuff.

This was a great YA adventure. The rules and complexities of the time manipulation were so fun to discover and see how they played out. The interactions between the characters were fun (often funny) and the plot kept me turning pages. It was great to see rounded teenage characters without any of the flat, stereotypical hi

**This copy was kindly send to me by the author, Jana Miller**

**SPOILERS AHEAD**

16 year old Chloe can rewind time, from bad conversations to awkward moments. what she can't do however is impact the world in a major way. She can't undo death or accidents.

I think this book takes an interesting take on time travel by putting many limitations on it, such as no more than a few days in the past without major consequences and no travel forward.

Chloe finds out, through a school assignment, that a boy

I have to start by saying that I wasn't sure what to expect at all from this book. And I was blown away! Miller immediately captured my attention and held it so thoroughly throughout the entire book that I could not put it down. I repeat, I could NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN!!! I tried, I really did. Because it was getting late and my eyes were burning but I had to know how it all ended. I couldn't stop reading it held me so completely. Chloe can rewind time you guys! Literally she can take the strand ...more

I think everybody has at least one or two moments in their lives that they'd give just about anything to go back and do differently. It was thinking about moments like that--mostly small ones--in my own life, and that planted the seed for this book. What if we actually could go back? Rewind and try again?
So this is a book that started with the question of "What if?"...and it just grew from there. What if a sixteen-year-old girl could rewind time? What would she do with it and why? What if she d

My New Favorite Author

This is an amazing book! It was extremely well thought out and put together. I liked the challenges Chloe faced, and how she found herself struggling at times. I barely put it down. I can’t believe this is Ms. Miller’s debut novel. I look forward to her next book.

Wow did I LOVE this book! There's just SO MUCH to love! I love the realness of the main character. Her insecurity, her humor, her strength. I love the diversity and depth of the other characters. I love the fun of considering what it would mean to be able to rewind time, and all the goofy stuff that ends up coming with it. I love that it's not a love story! So refreshing- and so great for so many teens who are really just trying to figure out friend stuff in high school. I was fascinated with th ...more

This book is one of a kind! In it, the main character experiences emotions well known to everyone, making her super relatable. Her development throughout the story is incredible, believable and inspiring, and the development of the other characters is fantastic as well.
The story is told beautifully. Every idea and aspect is creatively presented and so well thought out, and it’s just such a fun read!! The humor is right on point and the whole book is made of such a cool concept and thought!

The YA genre is a tricky one. It is so difficult to not only create an engaging storyline, but to also create characters that are not old beyond their years or written with a voice clearly coming from a “kids these days” attitude. Jana Miller does not have any of these problems. Her characters are not only believable, but written in a way that keeps them obviously young. Their dialogue, thoughts, and reactions to the story are interesting and well thought out, but manage to stay age appropriate. ...more

Chloe's life at 16 should simply revolve around school, friends, and maybe a boy, but it doesn't. Instead, it revolves around springing backwards in time, covering up little mishaps, embarrassing moments, and suddenly discovering that the senior boy in her creative writing class is able to do it, too. If that were all she needed to deal with, life could continue as she knows it; but there are others who possess the same ability, and one of them is determined that Chloe and her ancestors never ob ...more

From the prologue, your heartstrings are pulled and you easily begin turning the pages. No love triangle, no grimacing at a young-adult book filled with "smut", just a great, easy, page-turning adventure. A book I, a mom, enjoyed and a clean read I know my teenage son and daughter will enjoy as well. I laughed, I cried, and I recommend!

Great book

Great characters unique premise very entertaining. I would recommend this book for early teens through adults. Couldn't put it down especially the last few chapters. There are not too many books that I will miss sleep for, this is one of them

Absolutely not a genre I usually like.

HOWEVER!

Springback is very original and very well written. Chloe’s voice is unique and her journey is clear, clean, and satisfying.

Jana’s explanation of what Chloe sees is so clear that I could easily visualize her power.

Great read!

My six siblings and I were raised by artistic parents in mountain towns, and after surviving thirteen years in the Valley of the Sun, I now live in Colorado (my dream come true!) with my fun-loving husband and our five weird kids! I’m a work-from-home mom, editor, and now author. Until this year, writing a novel has always been in my top three “pie in the sky” dreams—along with running a marathon ...more
