Paradoxically Yours, Time Travel Stories

Since the paradoxes and counter-paradoxes of Lost have our heads spinning here at D.O.A. Central, we present a few time travel tales that are not merely about travelling through time, but which address those tricky time paradox issues that can crop up. There are tons more but these are ones that my co-hort and I have read and recommend. After lo those many years as a YA librarian, I still love and read plenty of YA and middle grade novels so you'll find those here as well.
