This is by and large one of my favorite childhood books Peter was so absurdly relatable that as an adult I couldn t bear to sell it or donate it to a used bookstore I don t usually keep things lying around like

due to sentimentality but this did it I read this book back when I was 9 or 10 years old I m iving it such a high rating because I m 25 as of writing this and it stuck with me for that long I really felt for our main "And Am Still Kind "am still kind outraged over his awful parents In fact that s the one thing I didn t really like about it his parents faced no conseuences f it was a cool and confusing book A teenage boy can re do past events by manipulating dimensional time Rewind by William Sleator is a very ood book for anyone who is looking for a reat fantasymystery book with a lot of twists Rewind is about a boy who Mesagerul gets hit by a car after finding out that his parents don t love him and after his death he finds out that he can rewind things andet a second chance This book has a reater meaning to "It That You Will "that you will after you finish the book This is a very ood book that is set in the modern world Another interesting and fun YA tale from William Sleator 11 year old Peter is killed by a car when he runs out into the street without looking After he dies he learns he has a chance to o back in time and try to change the events that led up to his death Through trial and error he begins to learn that just trying to change the people and circumstances around him will not forestall death if he does not also change himselfTold from the viewpoint of a smart but naive pre teen this book really speaks with Peter s voice Although sometimes the characters behaviors seemed a little unbelievable overall I was caught up in the story Good exploration of the implications of ones own behaviors and how they affect not only how others see you but how you see the world I think I would have really enjoyed this back when I was around 10 13 years old This is a very creative boo. When Peter is hit by a car he is iven the ultimate do over o back to any point in time before that fateful moment and alter the events leading up to his death.

Rewind by William SleatorHoly victim blaming Batman Every facet of this book is eared to establish that Peter is wrong Peter s actions and feelings caused his demise Peter is to blame for all the bad things in his life Peter is ELEVEN GODDAMN YEARS OLD and is killed in turn by a speeding car by a DIFFERENT speeding car and then by a car that loses control hops the curb and RUNS HIM OVER ON A SIDEWALK Neither Peter s emotions nor actions caused these things Idiot "drivers did It s incredibly troubling to me that this Juvenile Fiction "did It s incredibly troubling to me that *this juvenile fiction such a clear message of *Juvenile Fiction such a clear message of blaming as a central plotpointVictim blaming the second Peter s parents are one dimensional emotionally stunted horrible excuses for parents and for people They are utterly incapable of seeing the Jimmy: The Terrorist good in ANYTHING Peter does andive him completely conflicting mixed messages of what is expected of him leading to Peter basically having an 11 year old s crisis of how do I please these people and in pleasing them How to Live the James Bond Lifestyle: The Complete Seminar get them to show me that they love me His parents are either liars or simply acting and raising him in bad faith They provide him with cryptic flawed information and expectations and when he an eleven year old acts towards thoseoals he is punished His father at one point in the story uncharacteristically helps Peter and when the mother complains his father then BLAMES PETER FOR UPSETTING HIS MOTHER Even though it was the the mother complains his father then BLAMES PETER FOR UPSETTING HIS MOTHER Even though it was the that prompted and executed the upsetting actions WHAT THE SHIT PETER S DAD NO WONDER YOUR KID DOUBTS YOUR DEVOTION TO HIM Protip don t toss your kids under the bus for your own actions Not in real life not as a trust exercise not as a metaphor Don t do itThere s a teeny tiny kernel of a More scary stories for sleep-overs good message in here they idea that you should learn your audience and try to craft messages that will resonate with them But it s so far buried in the protagonist being surrounded by emotionally abusive stunted cardboard cutouts of characters that I cannot recommend that ANYONE read this orod forbid let their kids read this. Rstand him the school jock is out to et him and no one appreciates his own talents This may be his last chance can Peter cheat death or will he be lost forever.
