I recently went on a week-long vacation with a suitcase full of novels. Blissfully unplugged, I spent my time doing what I love: having adventures with my family and reading. Here’s one of the books I read:
7 word review: Ring, ring. Who’s there? You, freshman year.
Science-fiction / realistic fiction. YA. Stand-alone novel. Share with ages 13-17.
Take a standard YA novel premise (breaking up), add a bit of sci-fi, and this original novel is born. Senior Devi’s devastated with the ending of her 4 year relationship. When her cell starts acting up, it calls only one person: her, 4 years ago, freshman year. Senior Devi realizes that she can give advice to Frosh Devi, with the idea that she’ll fix all that she screwed up in the last 4 years. But Newton said it best: each action has an equal or opposite reaction, which Devi will soon learn. With a Back to the Future vibe, this is a quick beach read for the YA fans out there.
