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?

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maggie | 2/20/2014

    " this book is a amazing! i love the idea of playing around the theme " be careful of what you wish for". it is told in the perspective of a 14 year old and a 16 year old character. the book is full of details that lets the reader escape reality. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shauna | 2/16/2014

    " What if a broken cell phone allowed you to talk to yourself three years in the past? What if you thought that by doing so you could fix everything that had gone wrong in your life? That is the idea behind this book. It was a fun, light read and I enjoyed it although I thought the older Devi was being a bit selfish and bossy wanting the younger one to do all the work (work the older one never remembered doing) just so her circumstances could be improved. I did like that in the end both Devi's figured out what was best and I LOVED that the younger Devi figured it out first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melanie Jacobson | 2/2/2014

    " This is one of those books I wish I'd written. Clever and sometimes hilarious. It was the perfect antidote to a rough day. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maddie | 1/17/2014

    " It was predictable, thats all I have to say. It wasn't great, it wasn't horrible. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 1/12/2014

    " This one was recommended by my oldest. It was a cute read about a girl who calls her younger self and tries to make her change her life choices so that she doesn't get her heart broken when her boyfriend breaks up with her. The results were great. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lovelyrita | 12/12/2013

    " This was the first book that I read from this author and I loved it. I loved how this isn't just about a girl and a guy, but more about yourself and your choices. Unfortunately I didn't like the other books the author has published but i hope she comes up with more books like this! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caitlyn | 1/9/2012

    " Great YA can be enjoyed by anyone who is mature enough. Bad YA ( like this) makes all teens seem shallow and self-absorbed, as well as the authors who write about them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 4/19/2011

    " This rates 4-1/2 stars. It is a cute story about a senior girl being able to talk with her freshman self. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 caitlin | 1/13/2011

    " It was an interesting premise that set this book apart from other fluffy teen reads, but I couldn't sympathize that much with the older protagonist. I liked her younger self better. It did give a good message about not letting your boyfriend rule your life that I think most teens need to know. "
