A new life is just a phone call away!

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

Recommended to Arlene by: Goodreads Give-away winner!!! Woo hoo!!!!!
Gimme a Call by Mlynowski was a GREAT read that was a ton of fun! I enjoyed the book from cover to cover and could not have asked for a better plot and ending. The storyline is unique, the characters are very well developed, and as you read the book, you wonder… How is this going to resolve itself? Well, Sarah was clever and spot on with her perfect conclusion. I highly recommend this book if you're looking for a break from paranorm, but still want to have some fun with a bit of suspended realit ...more
Imagine that. Talking to my fourteen-year-old self. I wish.

Devi dropped her phone into a fountain after having that thought. Then, her phone malfunctioned and kept dialing to the same girl whatever her typed in. And, yes, her wish came true. She had just broken up with her boyfriend, Bryan, and had nothing left as she spent all her time with Bryan in her high school. No friends. And got into a poor college. But not anymore. She can now talk to her fourteen-year-old self, redeem everything, and
Ha! What a fun read.

Did you ever want to change your own past? What would you do if you could talk to yourself when you were younger? What would you tell yourself? What would it change?
For Devi, apparently, it would change a helluva lot!

I really just loved the concept to Gimme a Call. How many times did I wish I could creep back into my own past and tweak a few things to make things be different for my future? But like Devi (& Ivy) the consequences to change ones past always come with a pric
Wow this book was so good!! Not what I expected at all it gave me chills
I will admit that, in the beginning, I did not like this book. There was something about the narration, the tone, that just really turned me off. Lately, the books I have been reading have been lighter, a little less impacting, a little less serious. This is great, at times, but, as I made my way through the first few chapters, I considered putting this book down quite a few times.
I am so glad that I didn't stop reading this book.

Gimme a Call has been staring at me from my bookshelf for quite some time. I bought it because I loved Ten Things We Did and because that’s probably one of my favorite covers ever. So when I found myself in the mood for something fun and fast I knew I had to pick up Gimme a Call. It did not disappoint.

The story is about Devi, or Devorah, whose life is in a mishap, no friends, worried about college, and worst of all, a boyfriend who just left her.

Her cellphone accidentally fell in a wishing fountain, just as she wished she could talk to her younger self, just to re-do everything in her life.

Imagine her surprise when her younger self does answer her almost-dead phone, and even more surprising to find out that everything that her former self does differently in the past, changes the future, or
The book I chose is called Gimme a Call. It was about a girl named Devi that was having a rough time in her life. Once she drops her old cell phone into a fountain her life begins to become much better. Once she retrieves it out of the fountain, she realizes she can only call one number on the phone... She can only call her number in perticular, three years ago, at age 14. Now that Devi can talk to herself at a younger age, she can turn her whole life around and go to a great college, not get he ...more
My Summary: After being dumped by her boyfriend of four years, Devi realizes something: her life is in shambles. With no friends, an estranged sister and parents who hardly speak, Devi has nothing except her broken heart. And her phone.

But after accidentally dropping it in a mall fountain, Devi's phone appears to be on the fritz. It keeps calling the same number over and over: hers, four years earlier. Now with a connection to her past self, Devi plans her future - getting into the perfect colle

Es algo difícil para mi escribir reseñas, pero este libro merece una:
Cuando compre el libro fue algo muy interesante para mi ya que jamás lo había visto ni leído alguna reseña sobre el, pero conocía a la autora y con eso era suficiente. Lo agarre sin esperar demasiado porque no soy el tipo de persona que se emociona cuando compra un libro del que no sabe nada en absoluto. Pero la verdad es que el libro me sorprendió, me gusto mucho el mundo que crea la autora entre Pipi y Avy; y tengo que confes

I liked this book because it was about a new topic: talking with the future or past you. Highschool senior, Devi, accidentally calls her self as a freahman. She decides to completely change her life after a bad breakup...sometimes it's not good to meddle in people's lives, even if it is yours.
Yo me preocupo del presente. Intento disfrutar ¿sabes? Del día. El sol. Mi banco.

Primero que nada este libro lo encontré entre mis archivos del 2013 (cuando bajé un megapack de 200 libros xd) y como ayer no haya qué leer decidí darle una oportunidad; a ver qué tal resulta me dije.

Gimme a Call by Sarah Mylnowski is about a girl named Devi who really wishes she could go back in the past and fix everything that went wrong in her life. After a bad breakup, she ends up dropping her phone in a fountain and then, things start getting weird. The only number she can call is herself when she was 14. Using this to her advantage, Devi gets her 14 year old self to avoid making the same mistakes she did. But is a life with no mistakes better?

What would YOU if you suddenly could talk to yourself in the future--and your future incarnation told you your life would be a mess in just four years? Buy a lottery ticket? Get answers to all your upcoming tests? Certainly you'd do everything you could possibly do to make sure your life DID NOT become the mess you've foretold!

Gimme a call is about just that.

When Devi's life blows up in her face, she thinks nothing more can go wrong...until she drops her cell phone

After 17 year old Devi drops her phone in the mall fountain, she is amazed that it still works......sort of. The only person she can call is herself -- at age 14! After the initial shock wears off, she has a great idea -- fix all the things wrong with her life. After all, since her boyfriend just broke up with her and none of her friends from freshman year are speaking to her, what if she NEVER even went out with him in the first place? What if she can prevent her best friend from becoming anore ...more
Have you ever wished you could change your future by correcting a mistake of the past? If so, you’re not alone. Meet Devi Banks. She’s weeks away from graduating high school and prom is around the corner. It’s her senior year and she should be happy, right? Well, she’s not.

You see, her boyfriend, Bryan, of three plus years just broke up with her. Technically, they’re not broken up yet, but they will be when college starts in the fall. Devi heads to the mall to return a present she just purchased

Todos queremos una segunda oportunidad para corregir nuestros errores... ¿Y si esa oportunidad estuviera a sólo una llamada de distancia?

Creo que muchos hemos sido testigos de la chica que se olvida de todo por estar con su novio. Se vuelve su mundo y en esa pequeña burbuja no hay sitio para nadie que no sean ellos mismos. No importa lo mucho o poco que le digas al respecto, simplemente te va a ignorar, hasta el día en que la burbuja se rompe y descubre que el mundo se ha olvida de ella también.
I would not go so far as to say this book was horrible, or even bad necessarily, but I can't say I enjoyed it. I picked this book up because, although it was 300 pages, it seemed like it would be quick to read, and I am attempting to read a book every day next week and needed something fast. I decided to just read it now instead of waiting until next week because I finished my other library books and needed something to read.

I remember thinking the premise was relatively interesting when it firs

A Sound of Thunder, the short story by Ray Bradbury, blew my mind when I first read it as a young girl. Granted, this was way before the Matrix movies and CGI and when the only thing we did on computers was play the Oregon Trail (who's with me?), but still, it opened my mind to the possibility of time travel and the ramifications that the most minuscule change in the past could have on the future. Now Sarah Mlynowski is no Ray Bradbury (not that she couldn't be--that just isn't the path she's ch ...more

Have I mentioned before that Sarah Mlynowski is the queen of adorable young adult fiction? If not, let's say it again! ADORABLE!

I picked up GIMME A CALL after reading Mlynowski's MAGIC IN MANHATTAN series. I had no idea what this one was about -- but I knew it would be cute. And, I certainly was not disappointed.

What a really cute story! At first I wasn’t sure I would get all that into it. I was confused as it went back and forth. But in true Mlynowski style she pulled me in and kept me there. I ended up not only loving both Devi’s but hoping that things would work out!

Gimme a Call by Sarah Mlynowski is AMAAAZIIING!

When I first read the synopsis, I immediately lit up because I have actually thought about talking to my former self to 'correct' my mistakes in the past.

This book was such a delight to read. It's a story about a high school senior Devorah (Dev for short) who accidentally dropped her phone and when she tried to revive it, for some freak of technology (I was about to say freak of nature but it doesn't seem appropriate,haha), she can call her high sc

Haven’t you ever wished that you’d be able to go back in time for a do-over? I think on the most miniscule, basic level everyone can relate to that feeling. But will going back in time (with everything you know now) truly change things for the better?

Gimme a Call was like the fluffy version of the Butterfly Effect without the actual time travel. In this book, senior in high school Dev is truly miserable. She’s completely alone and feeling sorry for herself. Her boyfriend of 3 years just dumped h

Gimme a Call is a very well written book that I enjoyed reading. Though at times this book can be a bit confusing because of the way it is told. The story is told from Devi's perspective, but in every chapter she is a different age. Her ages generally go from a 9th grader to a 12th grader. The reason the book is written this way is because Devi drops her phone in a fountain and believes it is broken. A few minutes later, she presses the send button and the phone starts to ring. The person who a ...more

I loved this novel. It was unlike any other YA novel I have read, and trust me, that's a big deal. Most are "yadda yadda love, i hate my life, high school sucks" but no, this one takes a whole different approach. How would you feel if you were a senior, and you dropped your phone into a fountain and the only person you could call was your FRESHMAN self? That'd be AMAZING. & That's exactly what Devi is going through. She wished and it came true, all because of the fountain.

It's unlike anythin
