Sixteen-year-old Chloe just found out she’s not the only one who can rewind time. Now she’s in as much danger as the fabric of time itself is.
Chloe can rewind time, but that doesn’t make her a superhero.
Trying to reverse tragic events—like her little brother’s death nine years ago—always backfires. So Chloe has resigned herself to using her ability to fit in, rewinding small mistakes and embarrassing moments. Then overnight, her “gift” becomes a magnet for danger and suspicion.
Chloe is awoken by severe pain from her connection to the Ring of Time, causing her to pass out. The strands of time go haywire, sparking her mind with electrifying buzzes. And her sort-of friend, Leah, accidentally reveals that she’s been spying on her.
Leah’s mother, Lillian, will stop at nothing to keep the ability to rewind to herself, even if it means erasing Chloe’s life altogether. As the damaged strands of time deteriorate further, Chloe and the other rewinders experience excruciating side effects, and friends and family start remembering events they’ve rewound. Chloe fears time itself is beginning to unravel.
While frantically seeking the secret to healing the Ring of Time, Chloe learns there may be a way to reverse her brother’s death—but it would require going along with Lillian’s plans. Is the possibility of saving her brother worth the risk of giving such a twisted person unlimited power over time itself?
Springback is a contemporary fantasy full of magical realism for teens and tweens—a unique twist on time travel, parallel universes, and time loops. More than just a mystery about supernatural abilities, it’s a coming-of-age adventure about being real, forgiving yourself, and making tough choices.
