Nathan Cobb lived with his mother in London, England. His parents had divorced a few years before but Nathans dad, Henry, was still a small part of his life. One day, Henry came to see Nathan at school. He explained that Nathans mother had died in a bus accident. From then on, Henry and Nathans lives change forever. One year after the accident, Nathan meets a curious yeomen warder (Beefeater) that goes around switching files and untying peoples shoes. The Beefeater states that he changing peoples futures for good. The Beefeater has a quest for Nathan: Nathan needs to stop Henry from returning to the past. While Nathan is on this journey, he discovers the secrets that had been hidden from him since the crash & and changes the present day his father and himself live in.

Counterclockwise was quite unique. It wasnt the usual build a time machine stuff and then you can go to the future. It was different and only the book can explain how exactly it worked, for I have no idea how to put it in words. Each page in this book was developing the story one way or another. It was quite exciting to see how Nathans life changed from day to day and I was very eager to read how everything worked out in the end. I wasnt disappointed! Every sentence was so exhilarating that I literally couldnt wait to read more. This book is more for younger children (ages 9 or 10) but that didnt stop me from liking it. Once again, 5 stars to a good read!

*book comes out in the next few months
