Not On Our Shelves, Usually Arrives In 1-5 Days Published:
Random House, 6/2012
Our narrator, Julia, is 11 years old when the world changes forever. It's October, and time suddenly becomes elastic. One day, for no apparent reason, a day is suddenly 25 hours long. Three days later, 25:37, and they continue to stretch. This novel has the feel of an apocalyptic To Kill a Mockingbird or a more sober True Grit, with a knowing, worldly voice-over guiding the reader through the moment in her childhood that everything changed. Understated, odd, and haunting.
