"Fifteen-year-old J. J. Liddy lives in Kinvara, a small Irish village where there never seems to be enough time - in fact, his mother jokingly asks for more "time" as her birthday present. And J. J. is astonished to discover that it might actually be possible! A tip from an eccentric neighbour leads J. J. to Tir na n'Og, the fabled land of the fairies, where the fairies reveal that time has been leaking into their world, leading to a lack of time in J. J.'s world and too much time in theirs. It's up to J. J. to help fix this dangerous problem... before it's too late. Rich in details of Irish music, mythology, and lore, this book is sure to enchant fans of chaotic, intricate stories."

A wonderfully wrtten novel, that kept me interested the whole way through. I definitly love this book, and consider to be one of my favorites! A must read for anybody who likes books that are different than most, with a hint of magic and fantasy.
