Description

Ellie is having the worst Monday of her life. She messes up her school speech for the class vice presidency position, she manages to take the world's worst school picture, she bombs softball tryouts, and the icing on top of this awful cake: her perfect boyfriend who is in a high school rock band dumps her. At the end of the day, Ellie wishes she could redo everything. When she wakes up the next morning, she discovers that it's Monday again! She has six more chances to redo the day in the hopes of having everything go exactly the way she wants. But in the process, she just may find out that what she really wants and what she actually needs are two very different things.show more

Review quote

"This work touches upon something that many teenagers (and adults) have always wondered: How would things change if I could do it all over again? While this story is relatively predictable, it makes up for that by being compulsively readable and enjoyable. Ellie is an easily relatable narrator for whom readers will keep rooting...A teenage spin on Groundhog Day that is sure to please those looking for a light and entertaining read." --School Library Journal"Brody brings fresh twists to a familiar Groundhog Day-esque premise...Adeptly balancing comedy and heartbreak, Brody's fantastical romance raises thoughtful questions about true love and the power to change one's destiny." --Publishers Weekly"Ellie's struggles to find her true self ring very true. Brody deftly handles the Groundhog Day-like elements, keeping just enough repetition to make the story consistent, but not so much as to feel overly repetitive. What could have been a lecture on not changing yourself for anyone, especially a romantic interest, becomes instead a fun romp with a girl who is feistier than she realizes and who earns love on her own terms, not someone else's." --Booklistshow more
