Summary

One of PopSugar's Best New YA Novels of 2021A Buzzfeed Top LGBTQ+ YA BookA Lambda Literary YA Book to Add to Your TBR PileA Goodreads Pride Month PickAn epic, heartfelt romance about a boy torn between two loves, one in his present ... and one in the past. A story of Black queer history, love, loss, and learning to stay in the moment before it passes you by.
Weeks ago, Andre Cobb received a much-needed liver transplant.
He's ready for his life to finally begin, until one night, when he passes out and wakes up somewhere totally unexpected...in 1969, where he connects with a magnetic boy named Michael.
And then, just as suddenly as he arrived, he slips back to present-day Boston, where the family of his donor is waiting to explain that his new liver came with a side effect--the ability to time travel. And they've tasked their youngest son, Blake, with teaching Andre how to use his unexpected new gift.
Andre splits his time bouncing between the past and future. Between Michael and Blake. Michael is everything Andre wishes he could be, and Blake, still reeling from the death of his brother, Andre's donor, keeps him at arm's length despite their obvious attraction to each other.
Torn between two boys, one in the past and one in the present, Andre has to figure out where he belongs--and more importantly who he wants to be--before the consequences of jumping in time catch up to him and change his future for good.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "After Andre Cobb receives a life-saving liver transplant, he passes out and wakes up in 1969 Boston. When he returns to present-day Boston, it is to learn that his experience wasn't as singular as he imagined. His donor's family explains that he now has the same ability as their late son: he can time travel. The family's grief-stricken, remaining son, Blake, is tasked with helping Andre learn and navigate his new abilities. Though Blake keeps Andre at arm's length, an undeniable connection forms between them. Meanwhile, during his travels to 1969, Andre also feels powerfully drawn to Michael, who teaches him to follow his passions. Ultimately Andre must decide where he belongs, whom he loves, and, most importantly, who he is meant to be. Jackson's charming debut is thought-provoking, romantic, and fun; furthermore, his characters are well drawn and fictional world is authentic. It is important to note that Jackson capably delivers both a swoon-worthy romance with a gay Black main character and a coming-of-age story rife with adventure, where racial trauma and pain aren't at the forefront of the narrative. A stellar novel that today's teens needed yesterday."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Six months after a liver transplant helps him beat cancer, 17-year-old Andre Cobb, who is Black, should be focused on graduating on time. But his new liver has given him the ability to time travel from 2021, which he discovers when he crawls into bed in his Boston home and ends up outside the same house in 1969, chatting with Michael, a handsome white 18-year-old who's happy to flirt with him. Once Andre's back in 2021, his deceased donor's mother invites him over to explain their wealthy, powerful white family's "genetic gift"--time jumping--and to introduce him to her other son, Blake, who can guide Andre in traveling time. Andre finds himself falling for Michael, though he can't help noticing how handsome Blake is. In his YA debut, Jackson has a great gimmick as well as a likeable protagonist who faces sociocultural realities across time ("Boston hasn't always been great for Black people"). If Andre's internal development is sometimes lean, the book offers an interesting twist on the way that organ donation, like time travel, can represent a mix of opportunity and loss. Ages 14--up. Agent: Jim McCarthy, Dystel, Goderich & Bourret. (Feb.)■"
