Imagine a world in which time travel is not only possible, but commonplace. Terminals in major cities house “time taxis”, which are used by tourists and commuters alike to journey to different years – subject to strict regulations which prevent the system’s abuse, of course. Fourteen-year-old Adam grew up in this world, and is easily bored by his father’s job as a time-taxi-driver. But Adam’s life changes when he meets the mysterious Evelyn, only moments before the police whisk her away. What starts out as a search for this captivating girl leads Adam to discoveries far beyond his expectations.

Aimed at young adults, John Settle’s first novel Time and Time Again is a fast-paced science fiction adventure. It is written in the voice of its protagonist, Adam, and Settle does an excellent job of incorporating the scattered thought process of a believable fourteen-year-old boy into an intelligent story. And when Adam finds himself in the middle of the age-old debate between science and religion, it is handled in a way that does not come across as biased toward either side. The book is thought-provoking as well as entertaining, and I would recommend it to teens and adults alike. ( )

Book description
Adam’s father is a time-travel taxi driver for Chronos Travel, chauffeuring passengers forwards and backwards in time. For Adam, time-travelling with his father is normal—boring, even. As far as Adam is concerned, he leads a normal life. He cycles with his friend, Don, or they both hang out at the skate park with Roslyn, eating ice creams, texting, and instant messaging. In September, the three friends were going to go back to school and continue their normal lives, like normal fourteen-year-olds do. All that is about to change.

Frightened and desperate, Evelyn Walker runs into the time taxi seeking Adam’s help. In his moment of indecision, she is arrested. Unable to forget her, Adam searches for Evelyn, not knowing that if he finds her again, everything he once considered normal—his life, his friends, and even his world—could be changed forever.

In this science-fiction tale, two teenagers embark on a dangerous adventure through time and uncover a shocking truth about mankind that will cause them to question everything they have ever known about themselves.
