Review: Perfect A Novel By: Rachel Joyce

PerfectPerfect by Rachel Joyce
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Byron Hemmings thought it was an ordinary day until that is his best friend, James Lowe tells him about two seconds will be added to the clocks - that they will be adding time without anyone knowing it. What can happen in two seconds?
Ms. Joyce takes us on a journey into 1972 and how a family and small group of people are changed over those two seconds. With chapters that alternate between past and present the reader is gentle woven into this wondrous tale. Filled with perfect imperfect characters that leave the reader with the profound this is a definite must read - and great for book clubs!!
There is a surprise and a twist, there is also so much within the pages for discussion. Time can be unforgiving and it requires you to be.
