Publishers Description: You will never read Denny Younger’s name in any history book, but the world as you know it wouldn’t be the same without him. Denny was born into one of the lowest rungs of society, but his bleak fortunes changed the day the mysterious Upjohn Institute recruited him. The role: “verifier of personal histories.” The job title: Rewinder. After accepting the offer, Denny discovers he’ll have to do his research in person…by traveling through time.

Review: This was a fun read. The characters were entertaining, although they lacked depth in places but overall Denny seemed to grow with the movement. There are a lot of plot holes as mentioned by numerous reviewers but this failed to limit the fun I had reading this (teenagers impacting time events, choices not obvious to the characters that have better outcomes, world building constraints etc. ). 

If you want fun within the bounds of alternate history, get this.
