This book is a mix between Mean Girls and Groundhog Day, but make no mistake, this is not a lighthearted funny book. It is actually very serious with some very dark and mature themes. There is sex, drugs, violence, bad language, and suicide.

The main character dies in a car crash at the end of the day one, which she then proceeds to live over and over. The plot is a little predictable, as she tries different things each day to get herself out of the loop and save her life. The character does grow and develop and become a better person, and some other interesting things happen along the way, including romance. But again, not a light-hearted funny book.

Sarah Drew narrated this, (an actress from Grey's Anatomy,) and she does an absolutely fantastic job. Probably the best audiobook I have ever listened to.
