Publisher's Summary

Whip-smart 13-year-old Julian Costello Proctor - better known as Jules - has an eidetic memory. For as long as he can remember, he has remembered everything. "My mind is always on," he explains. But when an unexpected death throws his life into turmoil, Jules begins to experience something strange. For the first time, there are holes in his memory.

But that's not the strangest part. What's really weird isn't what he's forgotten; it's what he remembers. Memories of another life, not his own. And not from some distant past. No, these memories belong to a man who's alive right now.

With bravery, ingenuity, and quirky good humor, Jules devises a theory to explain this baffling phenomenon. While tracking down the identity of his mysterious doppelgänger, he finds himself enmeshed in the hopes and dreams of a stranger and caught in the coils of a madman's deadly plot.

Slow, overly detailed, carefully crafted

Seemed to nowhere for such a long time. Bright, innovative ending. Might have been better at half the length.

Charming, lovely, engaging!

Lovely short recording. Had I known how short it was I doubt I would have purchased it, so I'm glad I didn't check to see the novel's duration. The narrator was perfect and enhanced the story (which is ideal, right? since that's their entire purpose). I love time paradox so that added to my enjoyment of the story. The 13 year old narrator is endearing and characters are kept to a minimum so those of you who are sometimes confused with numerous characters and/or story lines won't have that issue here. I'll keep my review brief by saying the story is just as my headline says, charming, lovely, engaging.
