There’s a bomb in City Hall and only Alex can stop it. She’s a Spinner, and her ability to freeze and rewind time means that Agent Carson Ross can prevent the inevitable.

This is the new world.

In this alternate present, a rare few can manipulate the strands of time. Hated and feared, Spinners are restricted to the Centers, compounds created to house and protect them. Society uses their skills to solve major crime. But messing with time comes with consequences: no Spinner lives past twenty.

At sixteen, Alex is in her prime—until time sickness strikes early. Agent Ross offers an experimental treatment and Alex suddenly sees a future for herself for the first time—a future gleaming with professional success and blossoming romance with fellow Spinner, KJ. But the promising medication offers more than just a cure—it also brings the ability to affect changes in time. And with it, dire consequences.

Carolyn O’Doherty’s debut shines a bright light on how we balance individual rights against societal good with startling results. REWIND looks at the lure of unimaginable power; the downfalls, and the triumphs.
