If you could go briefly back to your past and make some changes, would you? Alice Stern, whose beloved father is a famous sci-fi writer of time travel books, discovers that it is not so easy to do so after she stays out too late on her 40th birthday and wakes up in her childhood bed on her 16th birthday. After she nails down the art of traveling back and forth through time, she discovers that she doesn’t always like how changes to her past turn out in her present. But she can keep on trying! Poignant and entertaining, especially reliving one’s teen years.
