    Title: Rewind
    Author: William Sleator
    Rewind is a boo {Rewind_book_cover.jpg} k about an eleven year boy named Peter who accidently gets hit by a car and in heaven, a voice seys that he can alter the events leading up to his death by going back to any time he wants and change what happens.
    I think think this book is sad ecause his parents hate him and on two failed attemps their hatred caused him to run into the street and get hit by a taxi cab (attempt 2) and a pickup truck (attempt 3). but on his 4th attempt he gets his parents to love him by impressing them with an amazing puppet show.
    i think people who like stories that are depressing but have extremely happy endings.
