“Entertainingly mixes thrills and humor.”—Entertainment Weekly
“[An] amazing debut novel. . . . Dazzling and complex. . . . Fearlessly funny storytelling.”—The Washington Post
“Instantly engaging. . . . A timeless, if mind-bending, story about the journeys we take, populated by friends, family, lovers, and others, that show us who we might be, could be—and maybe never should be—that eventually leads us to who we are.”—USA Today
Elan Mastai's acclaimed debut novel is a story of friendship and family, of unexpected journeys and alternate paths, and of love in its multitude of forms.
It's 2016, and in Tom Barren's world, technology has solved all of humanity's problems—there's no war, no poverty, no under-ripe avocadoes. Unfortunately, Tom isn't happy. He's lost the girl of his dreams. And what do you do when you're heartbroken and have a time machine? Something stupid.
Finding himself stranded in a terrible alternate reality—which we immediately recognize as our 2016—Tom is desperate to fix his mistake and go home. Right up until the moment he discovers wonderfully unexpected versions of his family, his career, and the woman who may just be the love of his life.
Now Tom faces an impossible choice. Go back to his perfect but loveless life. Or stay in our messy reality with a soulmate by his side. His search for the answer takes him across continents and timelines in a quest to figure out, finally, who he really is and what his future—our future—is supposed to be.
Filled with humor and heart and packed with insight, intelligence, and mind-bending invention, All Our Wrong Todays is a powerful and moving story of life, loss, and love.

This book is very good. It basically has all the right things in it. Like action, tragedy, love and romance, and comedy. It makes you feel like you’re in the same room as the characters.
I was given this book from a Good reads giveaway from the author for honest review. Let me start off by saying my favorite part of this book was the time travel and all the science behind all this. Tom was a 32 year old man who to me didn't belong in his world he had a father who hated him and a mother who dropped everything to do make things easy for her husband to make his life easy. And for Tom it was hard to please his father in his time. Until he is Penelope under study in Tom father study of time travel. I did go back fourth with Tom and how he mind set of thinking and how he was feeling and how he did things. The women in his life seem kinda blah to me. If you like time travel and a lot science and number and hoe some people would do anything to relive that one moment over and over then this is the book. Thank you again Elan Mastai for letting me read this book and enjoying it.
