Review: The Boy Who Reversed Himself

User Review  - Mike Hammer - Goodreads

One of those books that I remembered bits of from when I was little - I recently found a copy and read it again. It's a quick read and illustrates the concepts of higher dimensions in a cool way. A good example of how a very interesting idea can make up for somewhat lacking characters. Read full review
