Review: Let me start by saying that the story idea was solid. I feel this would have made a much better story if it had been longer. There was a lot of details I felt the author left out. Sometimes I found myself re-reading sections to make sure I understood what was going on, and questioning things that happened in other places because they seemed to just happen and there was no explanation as to why. I think there were twists with some of the characters, but they are never really revealed. It left me feeling a little like I was only getting to see part of the story and there was much that was being held back.

That being said, I still feel the story was a worth while read. It was intereasting and makes you wonder how things could be different with just a simple change. One small change can affect not only you, but many other lives.

At $3.95 I felt the book was worth it. Not one I will reread very often, if ever again, but definitly worth the time I spent with it.
