A new life is just a phone call away!
Devi’s life isn’t turning out at all like she wanted. She wasted the past three years going out with Bryan—cute, adorable, break-your-heart Bryan. Devi let her friendships fade, blew off studying, didn’t join any clubs . . . and now that Bryan has broken up with her, she has nothing left.
Not even her stupid cell phone—she dropped it in the mall fountain. Now it only calls one number . . . hers. At age fourteen, three years ago!
Once Devi gets over the shock—and convinces her younger self that she isn’t some wacko—she realizes that she’s been given an awesome gift. She can tell herself all the right things to do . . . because she’s already done all the wrong ones! Who better to take advice from than your future self?
Except . . .what if getting what you think you want changes everything?
This was such an awesome book! I really didn’t know what to expect when I started reading it. I was smiling within the first couple of pages so I knew it would be good!
I loved the plot of the story. I’m sure most people have thought that they wish they could change a decision they made. In this story, Dev has the chance to change everything in her life by telling her past self to do different things at the start of high school, such as not date the boy who becomes her boyfriend. However, each thing that she changes ends up altering her current life, so she doesn’t know what’s happening. There were so many twists, and the changes between the chapters were unpredictable!
This book was a quick read! I flew through it. I highly recommend this great story!
