Time has stopped. It’s been June 23, 2020 for nearly a year... as far as anyone can tell. High schoolers and college age kids are tasked with trying to figure out how to find a solution to this world-wide problem. There’s a switch is Tru’s bizarre house. Her family is in crisis. Nobody knows what the switch controls.

Well... I’m not quite sure how to explain this book. On one hand I really liked the characters, but I don’t feel like a got to know them as well as I would have liked. The plot was interesting, but a lot of the time I was confused as to what exactly was happening. The concept was unique and timely – seeing as how we are in the midst of a pandemic where, at times, it really does feel as if time is standing still – but I think the ideas presented in this novel were a bit too abstract. The writing is definitely different, but some of the words/sections I didn’t think served a real purpose.

I give ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 stars to Switch by A.S. King. Not bad, but I was hoping for better.
