Book Review

(by- Linda )

I would love to find a magical library that lets me explore the what-ifs of life. In fact, I think this was my favorite part of the book. Who doesn't have a regret or two or wonder how life would be with different choices? It's impossible not to think about this as you read this book. The story shows you how big and small decisions have good and evil consequences that impact you and others.

I also liked the parallel universe concept, a clever take on second chances in life. It made me realize that maybe there is no perfect life. It reminded me of the classic Christmas special "It's A Wonderful Life." Overall this is a satisfying read that forces you to think. Recommend.
