Summary:What if you got a second chance to fix your worst mistake?

What if you found out miracles could happen?

What if you found out that sometimes, miracles are curses in disguise...

One girl, two boys, and one very scary piece of jewelry.

My Thoughts: Whoa. Lately, I have been wondering what it would be like to go back in time and relive my mistakes, to have the opportunity to redo everything. This book did just that for me. No silly, I did not go back in time and change my life but I got to experience Kate's biggest mistake with her. Kate, is dating Isaac, popular Issac. Everyone likes Issac. He's into sports and every girls dream guy. Kate has been dating him for a few years so they are pretty much themselves around each other. Long before they started dating, they were even friends. They are also best friends with Mitch, whom they have also known their whole lives. One night, Kate goes to a party and Isaac doesn't join her. She ends up kissing Mitch and Isaac ends up finding out and breaks up with her. Kate is devastated. It was a mistake, it was a mistake, it was a mistake. Yes, I meant to write that three times, because I'm trying to convince myself and Kate, that it was a mistake.

Kate ends up wearing a necklace of her grandmas the fateful night that Isaac breaks up with her. As she stands on the side of the road, she starts to feel hot, and all of a sudden she's back to the night she kissed Mitch. She gets to change everything! She gets to change her mistake or take it back. She gets to prevent it! But at what cost? A lot of little things are different in this new scenario. Little things she tries not to pay attention too but she knows they are changing and she wonders why.

She spends more time trying to be perfect for Isaac. The kiss between Mitch never happens. What will happen between Isaac and Kate? Are Mitch and Kate just friends still?

I just have to point out my favorite scene of the whole book was at the party towards the end, where the mystery guy is singing Kate a song. Loved that scene. At least where he's up on stage! Very very awesome. I felt like I was really there. I also loved the apple scene, the tree-house scene, you get the point. This book was neat!

Overall: Loved this one! I loved watching Kate discover some mistakes should happen while others shouldn't. I loved Mitch! He was my favorite of the two guys.

Cover: It's very neat. At first glance, I thought they were different girls and this was a story about two girls. It wasn't. LOL

What I'd Give It:

I've seen the cover around, but haven't really read anything on the book. :)

It sounds really good. Think I'll have to add this to my list.

Great review!
