Summary: Teddy is a time traveller whose job it is to fix time paradoxes that have the ability to change the future, as it is known. Unfortunately, she meets a paradox called Ano who forces her to question everything she thought was true about society. Is it necessary to fix the time paradoxes? Why is it such a negative thing to be anything other than heterosexual? Why do we have to accept the Infinite Loop if we know it’s something we can and should change? Does it always have to be the way it is?
Review: Although I found Teddy and her time-travel coordinator to be a bit blasé as characters, the art and the idea of the Infinite Loop and paradoxes had me hooked. I absolutely love time travel stories and it’s not often that the time traveler completely intends to change the future by changing the past. In this case, the butterfly effect was the end goal and empowerment was the result. A lot of reviews disliked the in-your-face messages, but I found them to be refreshing. Instead of hiding the message of this book behind prettiness, Colinet just… goes for it. There’s no interpretation needed and there’s no misinterpretation possible.
Recommendation: If you like time travel that breaks the laws of time travel and diverse characters, check this book out!
