Exquisite....Boy is a perfectly compelling protagonist.

Forthcoming from Dundurn Press on May 20, 2020.
Boy’s final year of high school is unraveling. Fast. He had it all worked out, from crushing his final exams to military school to a career in the air force. But his family’s tragic past and its complicated present have caught up to him, and his marks are slipping, jeopardizing all of his plans. When he befriends Mara, a homeless man who can seemingly stop and restart time at will, Boy will have to weigh his family’s needs and his own conscience against the potential contained within Mara’s mysterious and powerful gift. And he’ll learn hard truths about time: the past can’t be undone, memories are as fragile as moments, and the future rarely turns out like we think it will.
