I received an ARC of Rewind in exchange for an honest review.It’s hard to believe that this is Ms. O'Doherty’s debut novel. The plot is very complex, the characters have layered motivations and thoughts, and the ending is spectacular. The novel is well-paced with many unexpected twists. I will leave the plot summary for someone else to cover. For me, this book does a fantastic job of creating a solid, consistent world with characters who act as they should, given the parameters of their tens [...]
I first read parts of Carolyn O’Doherty’s book Rewind in a 2012 writing workshop at Portland’s Attic Institute, and I loved it. The finished product did not disappoint. In fact, my trigger-happy editor’s pen found nothing to redline.Rewind is equal parts sci-fi, thriller and coming of age novel. Like so many good YA books, Rewind works just as well for adults like me. Our heroine Alex has the power to manipulate time. She lives in a group facility with other kids who have the same specia [...]
I loved it! It’s beautifully written and a real page-turner. Each chapter ends with a cliff-hanger and I could hardly wait to see what happens next. A lot happens. This is the story of Alex, a 16-year-old girl with a rare gift: she can stop time and then rewind it to reveal events in the past. Her ability is such a boon to the Portland police department that Alex lives in the city’s Crime Investigation Center. So do other teens who help the police solve crimes by freezing and rewinding time. [...]
Easy and quick read! I received this ARC book at the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) annual conference in St. Louis as a freebie! It was the first out of the bunch of books that I read. The cover and summary caught my attention! I enjoy YA science fiction but not all that into mysteries. But, I really enjoyed the plot in this book and found myself wanting to not put the book down! It is a good read from start to finish. I can see some reluctant readers in high school enjoying this [...]
Rewind is a fast-paced thriller. Every chapter ends in a cliff-hanger, making it hard to put the book down. Alex Manning is a sympathetic, complex heroine: she's tough yet vulnerable, smart yet naive. The dystopian world of the spinners is eerily similar to our own, making the final revelation of what is really going on all the more shocking. Bonus points: I loved all the references to Portland, my home town!
I couldn't put this book down! It is a great read. Well developed, interesting characters with an intriguing plot and so well written I wanted to keep reading and reading. I can't wait for the next book, which has to be coming because I NEED to know what happens to the Alex and her friends. This feels like the next Divergent series - fun and compelling for both young and old adults.
Ooooh! This is a very fun premise and start to a terrific series. I was given this at ALA and read it on the flight home from Denver. Fast-paced with twists and turns on every page. Book talk this one just once and you'll have waiting lists a mile long. Loved the genre mix of sci fi, adventure and crime procedural.At 247 pages and large font, this is a welcome fast read for time-crunched teens.
Love this book! Great story, fast-paced, and well written. It's perfect for teens and tweens and will keep even reluctant readers engaged to the end.
