For those of you that have ever seen the classic kid's baseball movie "The Sandlot" I am sure you remember Squints telling the story that ends with the phrase "FOR-EV-ER!" (pictured above) I was reminded of this scene when putting together this list of books which focuse on time. Some of them showcase a Möbius strip/infinity symbol on the cover which again implies endlessness or... forever. 

Take a look at these recent YA reads that question time and its effects on our lives and relationships.
