This is what it means to love someone. This is what it means to grieve someone. It's a little bit like a black hole. It's a little bit like infinity.

Gottie H. Oppenheimer is losing time. Literally. When the fabric of the universe around her seaside town begins to fray, she's hurtled through wormholes to her past:

To last summer, when her grandfather Grey died. To the afternoon she fell in love with Jason, who wouldn't even hold her hand at the funeral. To the day her best friend Thomas moved away and left her behind with a scar on her hand and a black hole in her memory.

Although Grey is still gone, Jason and Thomas are back, and Gottie's past, present, and future are about to collide—and someone's heart is about to be broken.



Angie Elle (AngieElle) | 29 comments Sarah this will take me probably three days to read because I'm working also. Are we going to do a percentage with a spoiler tag for discussion?

Angie Elle (AngieElle) | 29 comments Oh, wow. You're quick. LOL I read the first chapter before work this morning. I like the writing style so far. I'll read your spoiler when I make it that far.

lol! Sarah is a turbo-reader! I am constantly in awe... I was thinking of joining you both with this, but I am currently involved in 3 buddy reads and starting another tomorrow... ooops (I have some overcommitment issues... ;) ).

Happy Reading!

Angie Elle (AngieElle) | 29 comments Sarah, I have not gone AWOL. I repeat - I have not gone AWOL. I had to work late yesterday because we were wrapping up March. I'm knocking off a bit early today to get some reading time in, so I'll be able to conversate!


Sarah (bookworm_sarah) | 71748 comments Mod
Okay ☺


Angie Elle (AngieElle) | 29 comments Sarah wrote: "up to 18% [spoilers removed]"

20%, and I'm in total agreement. I'm going to read your other spoilers to see if that changes.


Sarah (bookworm_sarah) | 71748 comments Mod
It has improved slightly, but it's still not brilliant.


Angie Elle (AngieElle) | 29 comments Yes, it's a slow, steady pace. Nothing exciting so far.
