I love how Mott takes a question everyone has asked themselves – what would you do if you had one more chance to be with a person you had lost? – and takes it to this extreme place that is frightening and thoughtful all at once. I found myself agreeing with or at least understanding every character, “good guys” and “bad guys” alike, and wondering which character I would end up most like in this situation. I still don’t know! Recommended for people who want a book they’ll be thinking about for weeks after finishing it.
