Synopsis: Abby Barnes has her whole life perfectly planned; from carefully chosen high school courses to college to a career in journalism. That’s the plan. But all that changes when one of her carefully selected classes is canceled. Forced to take drama Abby tries out for the school play where she gets the lead and ultimately a role in a Hollywood movie. With her whole life plan derailed she finds herself wishing things would have worked out differently. Abby had no idea that the next morning that wish would come true.
Characters: The characters in this book were very likable. Abby was a great character without being stereotypical.
Action: There was a lot of suspense in this book because (A) you never knew when her life was going to change again. (B) you never knew how that change would impact her life. I really liked the concept of this book. The past events constantly changing and thus constantly changing the current events kept things interesting.
Romance: While the book isn’t all about romance the ending does involve choosing one guy over another.
Overall: Overall this was a good book with a unique idea and a shocking ending.
