Julia shares her experience of when she was 12, and the world began to slow down making the days and nights grow longer and longer.
I thought this was an adult book, but as soon as it began I realized it must be a YA book and went with that assumption all the way through. However, since finishing it, I looked it up and discovered that I was incorrect in my assumption; it was in fact an adult book like I thought before beginning it. That has left me baffled. It so reads like a slow moving, uneventful YA book. Sadly, I was bored for the majority of it and don't understand its high praise.
