Extra Life by Derek Nikitas

From acclaimed and award-winning author Derek Nikitas comes a riveting and timely thriller: Extra Life — a mind-bending speculative thriller about Russ, a control-freak teen who receives an app on his cell phone that allows him to 'leap' twelve hours into the past to fix a disastrous day. But tampering with time-space introduces dangerous glitches he can't control, especially as he confronts a psychologically unhinged teen TV star, and willful alternate versions of himself.
