Wouldn't be nice if life were like a computer game and you could undo your mistakes and start again?  Gib Finney has an Unner which can do that.  So what if he makes a mistake.  He can just undo it.  Life will be easy now.  Then there is an accident and Gib must decide what event he needs to change over the last two days to keep the disaster from happening.  Was it the spitball he shot in class, an argument over a science project, was it the carnival?  Gib must relive that horrible night until he can find the one key event that will set things right.  Can he choose the right thing to change, and not hurt anyone, or are there things that can not be changed at all?  (Jean Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2003)
