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.


  1. The reviews of this one have been really mixed. I can't decide if I want to try it or not.
