July Free Chapter - Perfect by Rachel Joyce

Published by RandomHouseAU
From the author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage Of Harold Fry comes a very different but equally unlikely and heartrending hero, and a story of secrets, a terrible mistake, and the destructive nature of perfection. In 1972, two seconds were added to time. It was in order to balance clock time with the movement of the earth. Byron Hemming knew this because James Lowe had told him and James was the cleverest boy at school. But how could time change? The steady movement of hands around a clock was as certain as their golden futures.
Then Byron's mother, late for the school run, makes a devastating mistake. Byron's Perfect world is shattered. Were those two extra seconds to blame? Can what follows ever be set right?
