Sixteen year old Alex is a Spinner she has the ability to rewind time to review past events Hated and feared because of their ability to find the truth the small population of Spinners is restricted to Centers compound. This was not the non stop heart pounding adventure that I had anticipated based on the synopsis However in this instance I think it only added to the story and really set up a series that has a lot of interesting potential I won't give you a second synopsis of the book because O'Doherty did a great job of snapshotting the premise I will say that Alex was an incredibly likable and endearing character and I'm excited to see how she grows and faces the interesting challenges that this story has set up She's charming innocent if not at times naive the way most 16 year olds are while also being incredibly strong willed and a genuinely good person grappling with choices any human being would struggle withThe twists and turns felt in the end fairly predictable but I thoroughly enjoyed them none the less I'd love to see a lot character development for Ross in future books This is not a spoiler it is information given freely when we first meet the character Carson Ross in the first chapter or two of the book How did he grow to make the choices he did Was he this way before Sal's death I'd also like some development of his relationship with Sal and how that appears to be a pivotal event that set in motion this story I really enjoyed O'Doherty's use of time in this story as well and I look forward to seeing it in the next book Time was often written as if it were a living thing a secondary character that you forgot about until the most pivotal momentAll in all while this is a young adult book it did not waste time on a frivolous romance or the angsty thoughts that many YA books dwell on O'Doherty created an incredibly uniue and complex storyline that I think anyone would enjoy It was an easy and fun read with a lot of promise

Rewind Rewind #1Til time sickness strikes early When she is offered an experimental treatment Alex sees a future for herself for the first time But the promising medication offers than just a cure it also brings with it dire conseuenc. In her debut novel Carolyn O’Doherty has created a fascinating world where time isn’t as set as we believe REWIND is a solid YA science fiction with a heavy dash of suspense that will keep readers on the edge of their seatAlex Manning was born with a rare gift Known as a spinner she can freeze and rewind time She and others like her are feared and hated in eual measure for their abilities Tested at birth spinners are taken from their parents as infants and raised in secure Centers where they can be monitored and tested The only time they’re let out is to work with law enforcement to rewind crimesEach spinner is paired with an officer and Alex hit the jackpot with Agent Ross He values her skills and treats her like a real partner His real goal is to hunt down a prolific and dangerous killer who has managed to evade capture for years It’s a case that will take time Time that Alex doesn’t have since no spinner lives past the age of 20 EverWhen Agent Ross offers Alex a chance for experimental medication she suddenly sees a possible future for herself But when this new treatment produces a side effect in her abilities that would terrify the public and put all spinners at risk Alex has to ask herself if it’s worth the riskWithin the first chapter O’Doherty skillfully shows us what life as a spinner is like She takes us through a rewind She lets us see how people treat Alex and how different Agent Ross is in that regard We learn that spinners are “leashed” and that controlling time has side effects It’s a concise and important introduction that allows the reader to fall completely into the story immediately While there is a lot of information it is written into the story fluidly so it doesn’t feel overwhelming or take away from the readingEven though Alex is a spinner with abilities we don’t actually have she feels very real as a teenager Her reactions thought processes and decisions all feel normal and within the spectrum of how a teenager would behave I really liked that she felt like a 16 year old It makes her character relatable and realistic Which makes this an excellent coming of age story Alex has to face situations and unravel some difficult truths about people she trusts Her choices propel her forward and change her taking away some of the innocence and naivety of childhood She has to put her own thoughts feelings and desires behind her in order to move forwardI love the blend of science fiction but with the fast pace and suspense of a thriller The ideas and world building are easy to grasp and understand making this very approachable science fiction However there is a very sinister undertone throughout the book not just in the plot twists but in how society treats these kids in general Which makes it read like a dystopian but instead of some distant future we’re in an alternate present reality This merging of genres works really well making for a highly entertaining readOutside of Alex the entire cast of characters are complex and believable We see a wide range of personalities in the kids and the adults around them We also see a broad spectrum of reactions to the kids themselves which feel depressingly real I really enjoyed that while there are definite bad guys presented O’Doherty wasn’t afraid to offer an exploration of the murkier grey area where good people make bad choicesREWIND is the first in a series ending in a bit of a cliffhanger I’m very anxious to read the next book to see where Alex Agent Jones and Dr Barnard go next The ending is satisfying with enough room to explore both the plot and deeper societal world building O’Doherty has created an interesting world with a cast of compelling characters This is an imaginative debut that is solidly entertaining and will find an audience within a wide range of readersReviewed by Jena Brown
