William Sleator’s Rewind transcends time as well as space. The story opens with Peter, the main character, dying in a car accident. Peter is given the chance to go back and try to change events so that he not only lives, but lives a better life than before the accident. This means he must change some of the firmly held beliefs of the adults around him, which is no easy task for a teenager.Jamie Whitfield teaches middle school English and literature.
