Named a Most Anticipated Book of 2022 by Harper’s Bazaar, Oprah Daily, Glamour, Entertainment Weekly, Vogue, Good Housekeeping, Parade, Bustle, Marie Claire, PopSugar, Thrillist, Lit Hub and more!   What if you could take a vacation to your past? With her celebrated humor, insight, and heart, beloved New York Times bestseller Emma Straub offers her own twist on traditional time travel tropes, and a different kind of love story.             On the eve of her 40th birthday, Alice’s life isn’t terrible. She likes her job, even if it isn’t exactly the one she expected. She’s happy with her apartment, her romantic status, her independence, and she adores her lifelong best friend. But her father is ailing, and it feels to her as if something is missing. When she wakes up the next morning she finds herself back in 1996, reliving her 16th birthday. But it isn’t just her adolescent body that shocks her, or seeing her high school crush, it’s her dad:  the vital, charming, 40-something version of her father with whom she is reunited. Now armed with a new perspective on her own life and his, some past events take on new meaning. Is there anything that she would change if she could?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Unlike other time travel stories, this one’s not about figuring out how to get back to the present but how to appreciate it when you do.” Good Housekeeping
“A moving story about a father-daughter relationship…Chronicles what happens when one forty-year-old woman wakes up and is suddenly sixteen years old again. But it’s not her youth she’s riveted by—it’s her father’s.” Marie Claire
“Time travel is a popular trope in fiction, and Straub deploys it brilliantly in her effervescent new novel…Straub is an expert chronicler of social mores and the inner lives of her (mostly) bourgeois characters, and here she delivers a surefire bestseller.” Oprah Daily
“This addictive and lovely novel is Straub’s ‘smallest’ so far, focusing ultimately on a single character and her most treasured relationship. Yet it contains no less of Straub’s signature warmth and authenticity.” Booklist (starred review)
