Title: The Navigator
Author: Eoin McNamee
Owen has always been different, and not only because his father committed suicide, but he is not prepared for the knowledge that he has a mission to help the Wakeful — the custodians of time — to stop the Harsh from reversing the flow of time.
One day the world around Owen shifts oddly: Time flows backwards, and the world and family he knew disappear. Time can only be set right when the Resisters vanquish their ancient enemies, the Harsh. Unless they are stopped, everything Owen knows will vanish as if it has never been . . . And Owen discovers he has a terrifying role to play in this battle: he is the Navigator.
