Finding Time

Grabbed a book off the shelf this morning. It was just a random pick from the library. No rhyme or reason just one I grabbed from the shelf. After I picked it up and settled down to read I laughed out loud.

The book is called, "The New Policeman," by Kate Thompson. The back of the book says the following;

The New Policeman
There never seems to be enough time in Kinvara, or anywhere else in Ireland for that matter. When J.J.'s mother says that what she really wants for her birthday is more time in her day, J.J. decides to find her some. But how can he find time for her, when he barely has enough time to keep up with school and his music? And where will he get time to find out if the shocking rumor is true—that his great-grandfather was a murderer?
It seems as though J.J.'s given himself an impossible task. But then a neighbor reveals a secret to him—there is a place where time stands still. J.J. realizes he's the only person who can make the journey, but to do so he'll have to vanish from his own life.

I laughed because I found a book about disappearing time and finding time. Guess I'm not the only one wondering where it all goes.
