ABOUT THIS BOOK

Who better to take advice from than your future self? This hilarious novel from the author of Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn't Have), Don't Even Think About It, and the Magic in Manhattan series is sweet, entertaining, and all-too-relatable.  

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 the mall fountain. Now it only calls one number . . . hers. At age fourteen, three years ago!

Once Devi gets over the shock—and convinces her younger self that she isn't some wacko—she realizes that she's been given an awesome gift. She can tell herself all the right things to do . . . because she's already done all the wrong ones! 

Except . . .what if getting what you think you want changes everything?
