Item description for January 3rd 1/2 by Debora S. Davis...
WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON A DAY WITHOUT CONSEQUENCES?
January 3rd 1/2 explores universal fantasies and asks the reader to imagine a day free from social responsibility, morals, and laws. What would you do if you had the chance to experience a day that doesn't exist? A "Free Day" on which you could do anything you choose with no consequences? Would you take revenge? Express yourself in some way without restraint? Make real your darkest fantasies? Tempt death? Five people receive the chance to do just that when they find a mysterious invitation under their Christmas tree in the form of a silver ticket embossed with the words "Free Day January 3rd 1/2." All of the characters in this compelling fantasy think they will benefit from their "Free Day," but the lesson of the story is really, "Be careful what you ask for -- you just might get it!" This fantastic story is designed to make us take a close look at our hidden desires and the reality we choose to live in and react to. Magic and suspense drive the story to places beyond imagination and into an alternate reality.

"What would you do....?"
Debora Davis has taken on a very challenging topic and presentation with this book. Five people are offered a day without consequences. Each of these people represent a literary archtype and make choices that many of the readers would make under the same circumstances...but as always there is a catch. And when the devil comes to collect his due, she does not shy from the results. There is no "hollywood" style ending here where everyone ends up happily every after. And kudos to here for having the guts to follow it through to the logical conclusion, even when she could have made herself a loophole. Anything else and I would have left feeling cheated.
Debora has taken on quite a challenge. A multiple-viewpoint, intertwined story that many established writers would shy away from. She has met the challenge quite admirably.
