It was Saturday, November 15, but I didn’t know that. I wouldn't understand the strange countdown of days that formed my existence until later. All I knew then was that I was alive, alone, and trapped in the body of a dead person.
At the moment Dan's life ends, the Rider's life begins. Unwillingly tied to Dan, the Rider finds himself moving backwards in time, each day revealing more of the series of events that led to Dan's suicide. As the Rider struggles to figure out what he's meant to do, he revels in the life Dan ignores: his little sister, always disappointed by her big brother's rejection; his overwhelmed mom, who can never rely on Dan for help; and Cat, with her purple hair, artistic talent, and misfit beauty. But Cat doesn't want anything to do with Dan. What did he do? As the days move in reverse, it's up to the Rider to find out why Cat is so angry and what he must do to make things right.
In his second novel for teens, Todd Mitchell turns time around as the Rider attempts to fix the future by changing the past and experiences the joys and heartbreak of living backwards.
