Out now from Orbit Books (Little, Brown).

  1. Arlo and his sister Erin consider themselves to be very different characters, but in what ways are they alike?
  2. Would the book be any different if there was no mention of quantum physics?
  3. How is the theme of imperfection explored? How are characters a product of their mistakes?
  4. How does what Arlo wants out of life change as the book progresses?
  5. Arlo’s dad lets slip that he was ‘an accident’. How does this affect the protagonist?
  6. Is there any benefit to having regrets?
  7. Who was a worse influence on the protagonist, his mum or his dad
  8. Is Arlo a good person?
  9. What role does deja vu play in the novel?
  10. What do you think of how Arlo chooses to end the book?
