Gimme a Call

Gimme a Call
by Sarah Mlynowski

Imagine how much better your life would be if you could just go back in time and fix all the stupid mistakes you made in the past.  You could stop yourself from tripping in front of the cute guy you like or getting that horrible haircut.  Maybe you could even stop yourself from dating the person who broke your heart!

When Devorah (Devi, for short) drops her cell phone in the nasty, mold-filled fountain at the mall, the phone seems to stop working completely, until Devi realizes that the one number she can call is her own and the one person it rings to is herself... 3 1/2 years ago. 

Now Devi has a chance to change the past, once she can persuade her 14-year-old self that she's for real.
She can become a better student, avoid losing her friends, and avoid getting her heart broken by her boyfriend of almost four years... IF her past self can handle the stress.  

It's not easy to completely change who you are, especially when your future self keeps calling and screaming about all the changes.

And there are many.

Is changing the past worth taking the risk on the present?

Final thoughts:  This is a roller-coaster book.  It grabs and doesn't let go.  It's a super quick read and delves into everything from the time-space continuum to finding balance in life.  Definitely a book for anyone who's wondered "What if??"

Rating: 5/5

I like the sound of this. It reminds me vaguely of Before I Fall, but lighter-hearted. I'll look for it!
