Gimme A Call is a fun read. Devi is coming to the end of her Senior year. She hasn't gotten over the recent breakup with her long-term boyfriend, Bryan, when her phone suddenly allows her to talk with "Frosh," Freshman self. She quickly discovers how mutable past events are and sets her younger self to work "improving" their life, trying to get into a better college. Devi is in constant contact and conflict with Frosh--Devi is adamant about removing Bryan from her life almost as much as he is about keeping himself in it. The littlest changes in Frosh's schedule completely changes Devi's--and everyone else's--reality, but always leaves her memories intact. One minute her family is filthy rich and she has a prom date, then next it is back to normal and she doesn't. When Devi's phone battery begins to die she must learn to relinquish control of the past and her tired Frosh self.

I enjoyed both of the main characters. The dialogue was fresh and the pace smooth. There are no brilliant revelations hidden between these pages, but the concept of contentment and making wise-but-unanxious decisions is reinforced in a unique way. If you're thinking of reading this book, give it a go.
