Timestand

Discovering you’re a time-freezing superhero isn’t supposed to be like this.

Sure, Tim can take revenge on the school bullies, thwart bank robberies and save falling window cleaners – but why is his best friend injured then abducted from hospital, what’s causing his father’s fainting fits, who is his unsettling new neighbour and why hasn’t anyone else noticed him?

  • “…you did all the characters very realistically, I could almost feel as if Jack was my friend from my school…”
  • “…I found the book really funny…”
  • “…I was engrossed in it for a couple of days until I finished it…”
  • “…it is a witty, humorous, action packed and overall amazing book which I think has potential to sell in many numbers…”
