GoodReads Blurb:
I should have died when I was shot at the Halloween dance.

Instead I woke up—one week earlier, in a parallel universe where my mom's fatal car accident six months ago never happened.

A world with my mom still in it was all I ever wanted. But in this timeline, everything is different—my grades, my friends, and even my boyfriend. I'm a stranger in my own body, and I don’t like who I’ve become.

But one thing is the same—that shooting will still happen at the end of the week.

I'm the only one who knows. Which means I'm the only one who can stop it.

But first I need to convince someone—anyone—that I’m telling the truth... and then get them to help me.


I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this book. I've been much more selective in taking on review books but when I got the e-mail from Michelle I just knew that I had to review this one. This was a very fast paced that definitely kept me flipping the pages. It was hard to stop because I really wanted to know what happened. The characters were pretty good, too and easy enough to relate to. It's funny how I started off liking Jake but then ended up liking Zac. I like Zac more than Jake and that's really all I can say without giving away a spoiler.

I always found the Many Worlds Theory fascinating so I was really excited when it popped up in this book. I like that Michelle worked that in although I do wish we'd gotten some more answers. It didn't ruin the book for me but I wish that they were there. It was also sometimes a little too fast paced and I wished that there more detail or showing, or more feeling from the character.

And the school shooter was to one dimensional for me. I know I was seeing them through Anna's eyes but there wasn't enough to them for me. We didn't see enough of them. And there was only contempt for them which I understand 100% but I wish there was some more dimension to that whole situation and character. Then again, I always want to get into the minds of people when something like that happens. Pick it apart. I've always really been one for understanding the "villain".

Overall, it was an enjoyable read. I think I'd give it 3.25 quills.
