No True Echo by Gareth P. Jones

A gripping time-travel novel guaranteed to make you think yourself in circles.

Eddie lives with his grandmother, who is keeping secrets about Eddie's mother, and has a ho-hum life in dull Wellcome Valley until Scarlett White boards his school bus one day. After she comes along, Eddie witnesses a horrific murder and then finds himself returned to the first day he met her, and realizes he is the only one with any memory of her.

Although the ending is a little unsatisfying, overall this is one book that you can't bear to put down. This time-travel thriller, faintly reminiscent of the film Groundhog Day is sure to be a hit with both time-travel fans and reluctant readers and would spark great discussions about time travel, causal loops, and ethics in any book club.
