Honestly, if the world stopped, we’d all stop with it. It would be like a hiccup in time. Who’s to say that doesn’t happen all the time? Maybe it’s really 3013, not 2013, and we’ve been frozen for a thousand years?
Okay, now I’m creeping myself out. J
Seriously though, we’ve all experienced that moment of losing time. Like when I drive to the day job and I wonder how I got there so fast. Or like when I walk into the kitchen only to forget why I even went in there.
Sure, time keeps moving even if we want to stop it. But if it did stop, we’d stop along with it.
Unless of course, we’re the only ones who can restart it again.
What if today never ends?
What if everything about life—everything anyone hoped to be, to do, to experience—never happens?
Whether sitting in a chair, driving down the road, in surgery, jumping off a cliff or flying … that’s where you’d be … forever.
In One More Day, Erika Beebe, Marissa Halvorson, Kimberly Kay, J. Keller Ford, Danielle E. Shipley and Anna Simpson join L.S. Murphy to give us their twists, surprising us with answers to two big questions, all from the perspective of characters under the age of eighteen.
How do we restart time?
How do we make everything go back to normal?
The answers, in whatever the world—human, alien, medieval, fantasy or fairytale—could,maybe, happen today.
What would you do if this happened … to you?
L.S. Murphy lives in the Greater St. Louis area where she watches Cardinals baseball, reads every book she can find, and weaves tales for young adults and adults. When not doing all of the above, she tends to her menagerie of pets as well as her daughter and husband.
