The Repeat Year is a debut novel by Andrea Lochen about a young woman who has had a terrifically horrible 2011. On New Year’s Day 2012, she wakes up to find that it’s 2011 all over again — at least it is for her. She’ll have to relive the dreadful year, with the full knowledge of what happened during her first time around, in hopes that she can correct her personal and professional mistakes. Yes, the storyline sounds like a cross between Groundhog Day and The Time Traveler’s Wife.
The Repeat Year will be released by Berkley Books on May 7, 2013, but you can read the first chapter now:
We’ll post a review of this novel in the near future, presuming that we don’t travel backwards in time.
