Did you ever want to go back in time to change things around in your past? The undo button we all fantasize about. Amalie Jahn explores this concept in her touching novel, The Clay Lion. Brooke Wallace cannot deal with the sudden death of her younger brother and travels back in time three times to try to modify the events of his life. Her trips are meticulously planned to correspond with the exact event she wants to change in order to avoid his death. The themes of control and cause and effect are paramount in this emotional coming of age story. Brooke must learn that ultimately, she can only control her own life, and there are sometimes negative consequences in trying to direct someone else's life. A thought-provoking look at the painful journey of grief and heartbreak, and without a doubt, a strong recommendation for the young and adult reader alike.

"The Clay Lion" by Amalie Jahn is an amazing piece of heart-breaking and uplifting fiction. Aimed probably at young adults as main target audience the book however has a lot to say that is relevant to people of all ages. It is the story of one brave young woman that choses to go back in time to try and save her fatally ill younger brother. The idea of time travel did not appeal to me at first since it has been done many times and some authors in the genre can try to be too clever for their own good. "The Clay Lion" is way above that level and raises some fascinating and worthy questions about regrets, missed opportunities, second chances and destiny. By doing so successfully the book qualifies - in my humble opinion at least - as literary fiction and philosophical offering on the subject of turning back time. It made me think hard about what I would chose to relive and try and change in my life. The main story - the disease of her younger brother - is often sad but always full of hope and positive and important messages, a tribute to courage and an appeal to the good side in all of us. Written with charm and emotional wisdom this is hugely rewarding and captivating. A powerful and important read and a talented author to watch.
