This was the first book I have read by Brenda and I loved it!!
4.5 stars!
This includes the aspect of time travel and I am ashamed to say I haven't read much of that in my life. I seriously need to start because this book is one of my favorites now.
The main character, Brianna, goes from 43 to 26 overnight and we go along for the ride. Brianna is incredibly hilarious and quirky and I loved being in her mind. Brenda's writing makes it incredibly easy t

Brilliantly woven story about a woman's journey through the ups & downs of young adulthood. Brianna travels into the past, with a 20-20 insight about the future. What's intriguing is that the other characters in her life are unaware of this. This book made me think, if I could travel into the past, would I change anything? Would I steer my path into one with less troubles? This book resonates with readers who ponder about life, while appealing to readers who live vicariously through books or ...more

I chose this book because it was a unique synopsis. Not like what I have read before. I truly did enjoy the book. I think you learn more about the characters because of the back and forth of her life. That way you understand why she wanted to make changes for the better.

However if you think about it, so many things about your current life if you did something just a bit different when you were younger. The books makes you think about that. All the what if's.

The only complaint I have was the endi

I finished this book in one sleepless night. I loved the story line and it kept me recited to the last page. I can't wait to read the sequel. This was a goodreads giveaway book ans I'm so happy I won it.

This book was recommended to me by a friend and I wasn't dissapointed. I didn't know what to expect considering this is the author's first attempt at a novel but I ended up liking it a lot! I'm looking forward to reading more from her.

love the time travel aspect, and how Brianna invites us into her life prior to 1997 so that the reader knows her backstory. I'm not one to reread a book, rewatch TV shows or movies, UNLESS it's really good & I think I'll get something different from it each time. I also read Thornlow's short story "Revolving Door" as soon as I finished this book; it was equally as compelling.
