Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly series hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming book releases we can’t wait to get our hands on.
This week’s Waiting on Wednesday pick is a romance with a time travel twist: Opposite of Always by Justin A. Reynolds.
This young adult debut follows the timey-wimey love story of Kate and Jack, whose relationship is cut tragically short when Kate dies … magically sending Jack back to the night they first met.
While we don’t really read contemporary novels, when we do, they must have a fun, intriguing twist. And what’s twistier than time travel?
Opposite of Always will hit shelves (real and proverbial) everywhere next week on March 5, 2019!
When Jack and Kate meet at a party, bonding until sunrise over their mutual love of Froot Loops and their favorite flicks, Jack knows he’s falling—hard. Soon she’s meeting his best friends, Jillian and Franny, and Kate wins them over as easily as she did Jack.
But then Kate dies. And their story should end there.
Yet Kate’s death sends Jack back to the beginning, the moment they first meet, and Kate’s there again. Healthy, happy, and charming as ever. Jack isn’t sure if he’s losing his mind.
Still, if he has a chance to prevent Kate’s death, he’ll take it. Even if that means believing in time travel. However, Jack will learn that his actions are not without consequences. And when one choice turns deadly for someone else close to him, he has to figure out what he’s willing to do to save the people he loves.
