The Square Root of Summer
Gottie H Oppenheimer is losing time. Literally. When the fabric of the universe around her town begins to fray, she's hurtled through wormholes to her past: last summer, when her grandfather Grey died; the afternoon she fell in love with Jason; and the day her best friend Thomas moved away.
Although Grey is still gone, Jason and Thomas are back - and Gottie's past, present and future are about to collide.
The Square Root of Summer is a completely unique and beautiful look at all the different ways our hearts can break. Brilliantly told and full of sweeping prose, swoon-worthy romance and just a touch of physics, this is a book for anyone who has loved and lost a family member, friend or romantic partner.
The time travel and wormhole element is fascinating but doesn't overtake the heart of the book, which is about Gottie and her relationships with the people who mean the most to her.
