What if you could go back in time to save the person you love the most?
The rules are simple. If you want to travel back in time, you need to be at least eighteen years old. You can only travel within your own lifespan for a maximum of six months. And above all else, you must never, ever, change the past.
But that's exactly what Brooke Wallace plans to do.
As Brooke faces existence without her beloved brother, his life cut short by a rare disease, she can think of only one solution - travel back in time to prevent his death. However, her attempts at fixing the past challenge her to confront everything she believes to be true about herself. And ultimately, she is forced to discover whether or not we can ever truly be in charge of our own destiny.

It's taken me awhile to gather my thoughts about this book. Mostly because I have so many good things to say, I don't know where to begin. The way that the author addressed themes of love, fate, destiny, personal choice and, of course, time was mind blowing at times (as all time travel issues are to me) but very cool to see how it all intertwined. I love how the "sci-Fi" element is just a means to explore a problem. That is after all what great science fiction is! Unlike many other time travel books The Clay Lion is tightly written without lots of tangents that aren't relevant to the core plot. This makes it a very quick, page turner, can't put it down, I'll just read one more chapter, before you know it's two a.m. kind of book. But what really sold me were the characters. Most notably the protagonist, Brooke. I love that throughout the course of the novel we see her truly grow as person. So many books these days I feel like we see no real growth from the hero/heroine and in the end I...
An amazing story of compassion, love, loss, and hope, told by an amazingly gifted storyteller. The journey from beginning to end is poignant and real. The characters of Brooke, her family, and her friends, each ring a chord with anyone who has ever wondered about roads not taken, love and loss, and what we might do to alter a reality where we lose someone we love. Amazing read, highly recommend this to anyone!
I didn't want to read this book-- but I did it for my friend, who wrote it. Now you think that anything I write will be biased. Yup. I've known Ms. Jahn for a long time, starting when she was a college kid and the girlfriend of one of my students. I've loved keeping in touch and watching them marry, have a family, and make me feel old! I didn't want to read this book-- but I did it for my sister, who died a few years ago. Losing her was the most painful thing I've endured in my life, but I still want to stay connected. I didn't want to read this book-- because I worried I would cry. I did. But I also laughed! And I smiled at sibling silliness and young love. I was inspired by Brooke's loyalty and love and doggedness in the face of an agonizing situation. I realized that through stories like The Clay Lion, we get lessons in life, we get help in coping with our battles, and best of all, we find out that we are not alone. I didn't want to read this book-- but I did it for...
