Review: Protagonist Zoe Mahar is a foster child who possesses a special gift: she can playback and repeat time in 23 minute increments. When she witnesses a violent bank robbery, she has ten chances at using those 23 minutes to make things right. Each attempt goes wrong for different reasons that reveal more back story while demonstrating that the events in all our lives involve many more factors than meet the eye.
