ABOUT THE BOOK
Author: Anne Riley
Release Date: February 2, 2016
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Rosie Clayton witnesses a mugging on her first night in London—and then the scene rewinds itself.
She finds herself standing in the same place again, with the mugging happening just like before, except this time a stranger steps in and stops it. There’s no way the same incident can have two outcomes. Rosie thinks she’s losing her mind, until just a few days later, the stranger saves her.
The stranger, Albert, and his band of misfit crime-fighters, have the special ability to Pull, which allows them to rewind just enough time to undo a recent event. Someone is hunting Albert and his crew– and now that Rosie’s been seen with them, she’s a target too. Rosie is left with no choice but to trust Albert to keep her safe.
As Rosie learns more about this unbelievable ability and the people – if you can call them that – who want them dead, she discovers that the group’s desire for her blood might be more than mere coincidence. Each step into this magical side of London introduces Rosie to a family history that she never knew existed, and dangerous forces that could unravel her world in an instant.
Her family may be the reason they’re all being hunted—and she may be the only one who can figure out how to save them. Sure, between the lot of them, they have a few shots to get it right. The thing about Pulling, though, is you have to be alive to do it.

What I thought:
Oh my goodness, this book! I have a read a lot of good books recently, and dare I say this is one of my favorites of 2016 so far!
It was so exciting, such a great concept. It really “pulls” the reader in. (Pun intended.)
So, Rosie finds out about this group of people that have the ability to “pull” or basically rewind time. They are using their power for good, by pulling time back and then stopping crimes from being committed. But someone or something is after this group of people, Rosie included, since she has witnessed their powers at work.
Pull was such a fun book to read! The writing was excellent, the story was engaging and easy to read, and flowed well. The characters were well developed and relatable (I loved Rosie and Albert especially!)
Oh did I mention its set in LONDON? Just another reason to love it.
I certainly hope this becomes a series, or at least the author will continue to write in this genre and style.
I give Pull five stars 🙂
You should definitely check this one out!
