Reversing Time is some good escapist reading with a pertinent message for today
The Miramichi Reader
Rather than reading as heavy-handed didacticism, Simon’s story is an engaging environmental fantasy novel reassuring readers that millions of people making small, everyday changes results in positive environmental change.
Reversing Time is a complicated tale, filled with information about what we are doing to the planet and glimpses of a possible future, told mainly from the point of view of a conflicted teenager trying to reconcile his broken family.
