Description

Who better to take advice from than your future self? This hilarious novel from the author of Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn't Have), Don't Even Think About It, and the Magic in Manhattan series is sweet, entertaining, and all-too-relatable.

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!

Except . . .what if getting what you think you want changes everything?

I'd use up all my peak minutes, pay overtime charges and forgo texting for a month if it meant I could have just one more chapter of Gimme a Call. Sarah Mlynowski surprises and delights yet again with characters that leap off the page and make you think about love, life, and the perils of spending too much time on your cellphone. This is a must read! --Jen Calonita, author of Secrets of my Hollywood Life and Sleepaway Girls

A perfect beach book. --ReadingRants.org

Mlynowski fans will not be disappointed with this blend of chick lit, light fantasy, and comedic mishaps. --School Library Journal

Our customer reviews

GIMME A CALL is a fun, quick read about second chances, learning from your mistakes, and how to not lose yourself in a boy. There are two main characters, but they're actually the same girl. Devi, the senior, manages to call herself in the past, just as she's starting high school. She's in a rough spot and regrets the choices she's made over the past three years and relishes the chance to change things (via her past self) for her present and future. I really enjoyed following along with the switches that occurred in the future as a result of younger Devi making changes in the past. Sometimes they were good (like a better prom dress!) and sometimes they weren't good at all (marital trouble for the parents). GIMME A CALL is a cute, fast-paced story full of well-developed characters and an interesting look at how high school, and what comes after, can turn out very differently with just a few small changes. It would make a fantastic teen movie! See more of my reviews at StoryboundGirl {dot} com.show more
