This Time Tomorrow

Alice is about to celebrate her birthday. She has a good job at the school she attended as a young girl, a somewhat likable boyfriend and a rent controlled apartment. Things are not great, but good enough. Then Alice’s father falls ill. An accomplished and somewhat famous author her father raised her on his own and has been her lifelong source of joy and happiness throughout her 39 years. As Alice sits by his bedside in the ICU she has a hard time accepting his fate and cannot imagine life without him. Drinking way too much on the eve of her big 4-0 Alice walks towards her father’s home on Pomander Walk, her idyllic childhood home on the Upper West Side. When she wakes in the morning she doesn’t feel quite right. Glancing down Alice sees a young woman’s body and an unlined face in the mirror reflects her 16 year old self. It is her birthday in 1996. After adjusting to this incredible time hop Alice relives this day over and over again desperately searching for a way to change the outcome. Every choice she makes sends her future in a different direction. In a Sliding Doors sort of way this parallel universe teaches Alice what she had in her heart all along. Completely devoured this wonderfully written, clever time-travel drama filled with lovable characters and lots of life lessons. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
