Gimme a Call
Title: Gimme a Call
Author: Sarah Mlynowski
Rating: 4 stars
Summary: 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?
Review: I really liked this book! A quick guilty pleasure I indulge in every so often. Of course, when 17 year old Devi tries to change her past, it doesn't work out exactly how she planned. Everyone saw that coming. Still, I was hooked; I stayed up really late reading it. 14 year old Devi and 17 year old Devi switch off every chapter, and near the end the chapters got shorter and shorter, all suspenseful and such. The last page was kind of weird, but overall a satisfying ending. :)
