*** Featured in the Richard and Judy Book Club ****** Featured in the Waterstones Book Club ****** Featured on BBC Radio 2 Book Club ***Harry August is on his deathbed. Again. No matter what he does or the decisions he makes, when death comes, Harry always returns to where he began, a child with all the knowledge of a life he has already lived a dozen times before.
Nothing ever changes.Until now.As Harry nears the end of his eleventh life, a little girl appears at his bedside. 'I nearly missed you, Doctor August,' she says. 'I need to send a message.'This is the story of what Harry does next, and what he did before, and how he tries to save a past he cannot change and a future he cannot allow
