About the Book:

In this debut YA speculative romance, two queer, disabled, Jewish teens find themselves stuck in a time loop—and falling love.
Phoebe Mendel has been living the same day for a month—literally. On August 6th, she woke up to find herself stuck in a time loop.
Ever since, she’s been reliving the same day: pancakes with Mom, Scrabble with Dad, and a search for answers on how to escape and make it to her appointment with a doctor who takes her IBS seriously. It’s the same thing day after day—until Phoebe’s childhood crush Jess comes crashing into the time loop. Now stuck too, Jess convinces Phoebe to break out of her routine and have fun. From splurging on concert tickets, to enacting harmless revenge, to all-night road trips, Jess pulls Phoebe further and further out of her comfort zone—and deeper in love with Jess. But the more Phoebe falls, the more she must grapple with dreams of a future that may be impossible to reach.

CHATHAM GREENFIELD is a young adult author born and raised in Florida, which is why their stories often take place in humid seaside towns. After graduating from Sarah Lawrence College, they were selected as a fellow in the inaugural class of LitUp by Reese’s Book Club. You can find them wherever there’s air-conditioning, wrapped up in a blanket, reading a gay love story. Time and Time Again is their debut novel.
