This was a fun, short book that can be read in one sitting. Unfortunately, I though it was too short to get to know anyone except Kate, the main character, too well. But that's okay, it's entertaining and funny and Greg is actually quite likable.

Zach is vile! Yuck. I must say I was a tiny bit annoyed at Kate for wanting him back after that first scene, let alone the rest of the things he did, I was just about to smack her on the head when she finally came to her senses. Then she left them again.

Kate gets dumped by her long- time boyfriend. He makes lame excuses for it, like she doesn’t have enough pizazz for him or that she never follows through on anything she starts. She’s confused, hurt, but she also lives in a fantasy land we like to call Denial.

Her best friend Anna is obsessed with her horoscope and reads it religiously every day, allowing her horoscope to dictate the actions she takes. Kate doesn’t hold any stock in it, but when she reads her horoscope the day Zach breaks up wit

The blurb
One decision + two different paths = how many happy endings? Have you ever wondered 'What if...?' What if you'd taken that other job, gone on a date with that sweet guy, moved to a different city? Would an alternative life path have led to a happier ending? Now imagine if you could have taken both paths...When Bea Bishop slips while walking down the aisle on her wedding day, she is momentarily knocked unconscious. And in a flash, her world splits and

Cute, young-adult, chick-lit novel

When 17-year-old Kate's long-time boyfriend Zach breaks up with her, he swears it isn't because he's fallen for someone else. He claims she doesn't have enough pizazz and she doesn't follow through on anything. Kate is devastated, but she's convinced that if she doesn't give up on him, Zach will take her back. She just has to figure out how to make that happen.

Her best friend Anna has been obsessed with reading her daily astrological horoscope for years, but Kat

This was a light, cute short book. The main character got on my last nerve with her obsession with her awful boyfriend, and I think horoscopes are a bunch of phooey, but overall, it was cute, and I loved Greg.

However, I found it to be repetitive when the horoscope would show at the beginning of the chapter and then two seconds later when the MC reads it. I don't need to see it twice. And the storyline with her grandfather kind
