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 an eARC for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I was so excited that I was chosen to be a part of the ARC team for this book. Thank you so much for the chance.
If you know me then you will know that I’m love anything TIME-TRAVEL. The synopsis of this book caught my attention. We follow our main character, Anna and the incidents leading up to the Halloween Dance where she is shot. She wakes up in a parallel universe to the start of the week before the Halloween dance but everything has changed. Her mom who died in the present life is ALIVE in the parallel universe. Well you can guess the rest, as her mom is alive in this universe, a new set of events has taken place. Anna is confused as to what actually happened and seeing her mom alive was the biggest shocker for her. She decides to take control and prevent the shooting from happening at the Halloween dance in the parallel universe.
Anna does a great job handling things like a PRO in the parallel Universe(PU). She is determined to prevent the shooting and is scared that after she does that, she might be transported back and will lose her mother. Anna has two love interests in this book. Jake in the Present Life(PL) who was her boyfriend but he is not in the PU. She is literally heartbroken when she sees Jake with someone else. For Anna, Jake is the love of her life and she will fight for him.
Zac, a jock who hasn’t spoken to Anna at all in the PL is actually her boyfriend in the PU. Honestly, I loved Zac more than Jake:p He doesn’t give up on Anna and plays a major role in helping Anna at the end.
Claire, Anna’s ex-bestfriend in the PL is Anna’s best friend in the PU. I really loved the friendship that these two shared in this book. Claire is the ultimate best friend.
The minus for me was that there wasn’t a major twist or turn in this book and I was able to guess who the shooter was.
This book is a perfect standalone but it does end on a CLIFFHANGER and I was like- is there another book or is it like a book where they just leave you on a cliffhanger for you to imagine what will happen next. As you can tell, I had to know the answer so I asked Michelle on twitter and she said there is going to be a COMPANION to this book where the cliffhanger will be resolved, so stay tuned!!!
A light and fast paced read with time-travel/ universe travel, mystery, romance, friendship, and CLIFFHANGER. Go read this book!!!
