    Gimme a Call by Mlynowski was a GREAT read that was a ton of fun I enjoyed the book from cover to cover and could not have asked for a better plot and ending The storyline is unique, the characters are very well developed, and as you read the book, you wonder How is this going to resolve itself Well, Sarah was clever and spot on with her perfect conclusion I highly recommend this book if you re looking for a break from paranorm, but still want to have some fun with a bit of suspended realit Gimme a Call by Mlynowski was a GREAT read that was a ton of fun I enjoyed the book from cover to cover and could not have asked for a better plot and ending The storyline is unique, the characters are very well developed, and as you read the book, you wonder How is this going to resolve itself Well, Sarah was clever and spot on with her perfect conclusion I highly recommend this book if you re looking for a break from paranorm, but still want to have some fun with a bit of suspended reality.About the book Devi s day is going bad, bad, bad Her boyfriend of three years just broke up with her via voice mail and now she has no date for the Senior prom As she listens to the message for the umpteenth time and tears slip down her cheeks, she loses grasp of her cell phone and it falls into a fountain Well that s just dandy, the topper of her day but wait As she dries off her phone and starts pressing the buttons hoping it still works, she finds she can call only one number her own So when the phone rings, Devi from three years prior answers and the adventure begins And boy what an adventure that turns out to be as Devi tries to recreate her past for hopefully a better future through ever changing advice.This book gets five stars from me for many reasons The storyline is different from the cookie cutter themes currently out there no vamps no weres Yayay The book is perfectly paced with fun adventure and constant laughs The narrative from Devi s perspective was engaging and refreshing And the content made me think about what I would do if I had a chance to counsel my previous self What would I do differently What would that advice sound like Havefun Work harder to reap the benefits later Give myself the winning lotto numbers to change my fate in life How much am I willing to sacrifice to have a better life What a great book that will keep me pondering about the possibilities and what is versus what could have been I loved it Highly recommend this book to my fellow avid readers that are ready for a light, fun, engaging book that pushes the boundaries on reality, but delivers some valuable lessons If I had a phone a friend lifeline, Devi would definitely get a call from me

    I will admit that, in the beginning, I did not like this book There was something about the narration, the tone, that just really turned me off Lately, the books I have been reading have been lighter, a little less impacting, a little less serious This is great, at times, but, as I made my way through the first few chapters, I considered putting this book down quite a few times I am so glad that I didn t stop reading this book.Gimme A Call is about Devi Banks A senior in high school, Devi s I will admit that, in the beginning, I did not like this book There was something about the narration, the tone, that just really turned me off Lately, the books I have been reading have been lighter, a little less impacting, a little less serious This is great, at times, but, as I made my way through the first few chapters, I considered putting this book down quite a few times I am so glad that I didn t stop reading this book.Gimme A Call is about Devi Banks A senior in high school, Devi s life seems to be falling apart She has spent the last three years of her life with Bryan, the boy of her dreams She has alienated her friends and her family, everyone around her, all to spendtime with Bryan But then he breaks up with her and, just like that, she has nothing.Colleges aren t excepting her It s too late to try and get her friends back She hasn t really talked to her sister in months.She needs a change She needs to just figure out how to get things back to the way they used to be.That s exactly what she s thinking of when she drops her cell phone in to the fountain at the mall.When she retrieves her phone and attempts to call her voicemail, it isn t her voicemail that picks up.It s Devi, as a freshman.When I read the synopsis for this book, I remember smiling The storyline, though unique and funny, is ridiculous There is just something about the book that is so humorous, even if I could never explicitly figure it out Sarah Mylnowski is a great writer, where every sentence leads to the next and I was always smiling at something I read As I got deeper in to this book, I really started liking it.Devi as a senior and Devi at a freshman are two different girls Freshman Devi is naive, immature, awkward, and really just trying to find her place in high school Senior Devi is older, has been through much , but, really, is just as immature They learn together.Senior Devi realizes that this is her chance, to fix things She can tell her younger self not to do something, to do something just a little differently, and her whole future will be altered.She doesn t expect everything that happens the last two months of her senior year She doesn t even see it coming.The book switches back and forth between these two versions of the same girl and, at one point, I couldn t put the book down I read this book in 24 hours, flipping page after page, eager to see the causes and the effects and what was going to happen in the present.If Freshman Devi does one little thing differently, Senior Devi s whole life changes The friends she lost are suddenly hers again, and their lives are different as well Her parents come together and apart and sometimes she s with Bryan again and other times she isn t Random boys seem to think they re going to the senior prom with her and, at one point, she wins the lottery.Senior Devi becomes a control freak selfish and manipulating, always telling Freshman Devi what to do so a better college will accept her, so her friends will be healthier, so she will be happier She doesn t even think about the fact that Freshman Devi is doing everything she says, that that is really her life, then.Freshman Devi just wants to be happy, to make her older self happy She just wants to get through high school and get out in the world and she seems to think that, if she changes a few things now, her whole future will be better.But that s not guaranteed That s never guaranteed.Together, they grow up.Sometimes I loved this book and other times I wasn t sure how I felt about it The writing was great and the characters, especially Devi herself, were so layered and dynamic that it surprised me when I reached the ending These two versions of Devi were so different in the beginning and, by the end, they are still different, but you can see traces of the older version of Devi in her younger self.This book made me think about living in the present, always doing things to benefit me now and not necessarily later This book made me think about living in the moment, but also about the impact of all of the little things we do Something that is insignificant for us can be unbelievably harmful and life altering for someone else We can never know, unless we re paying attention, unless we re thinking.This is one thing I just love about books in general Whether a book is happy or sad, a light read or aintense one, all of these books still have their meanings All of these books still have their lessons to be learned, things to make away from the experience I m still thinking about this book, even though I finished it a few days ago I m still thinking about Devi and the ways she grew and changed, both of younger and older selfs, and I m still thinking about how different she was in the end.She had changed, grown, developed, and finally learned that, though it takes time, she will eventually get where she wants to go.7 10

    That ending was really cute This was an easy, fast paced read that kept me turning the pages even when the MC began to annoy me both the older and younger versions, lol But I enjoyed the writing, and the story, and the concept was executed very well.3 stars.

    The book I chose is called Gimme a Call It was about a girl named Devi that was having a rough time in her life Once she drops her old cell phone into a fountain her life begins to become much better Once she retrieves it out of the fountain, she realizes she can only call one number on the phone She can only call her number in perticular, three years ago, at age 14 Now that Devi can talk to herself at a younger age, she can turn her whole life around and go to a great college, not get he The book I chose is called Gimme a Call It was about a girl named Devi that was having a rough time in her life Once she drops her old cell phone into a fountain her life begins to become much better Once she retrieves it out of the fountain, she realizes she can only call one number on the phone She can only call her number in perticular, three years ago, at age 14 Now that Devi can talk to herself at a younger age, she can turn her whole life around and go to a great college, not get her heart broken, and get all her friends back once again The main characters name was Devi but it was a bit like there were two main characters There is an older Devi and theres also a younger one two The main characters definitely ran into some problems For example if the younger Devi did something wrong, it could change the older Devi s life right away I couldn t really relate to anything in this situation Although if this did happen to me I don t think I would change much of my life, or use this advantage It s kind of like cheating at your life when you can go back and fix all your problems Even though I haven t finished this book completely, I ve been really enjoying it a lot I think it s a really interesting book and I would be super happy if there was a second book two My favourite part was the beginning when Devi first dropped her cell phone in the fountain That part really got me hooked, and I gotandinterested from that point on I would definitely recommend this book to people because it is really different from most books and its a great read It s not that long of a book either I really don t have a favourite writing style for books that I like, but I guess I like this writing style The author of this book is Sarah Mlynowski She lives in New York with her husband and daughter and she is 35 years old She is the author of the Magic in Manhattan series and Ten Things We Did and probably shouldn t have and lots of other novels for adults She also co authored How To Be Bad and See Jane Write

    I think that the concept of this book is fantastic I always wonder about the impact of a simple choice, so books about the different lives a person could be living because of some decisions they make are must reads for me This one is different from everything else I ve read, so I was really interested about it and I wasn t disappointed.I loved how the younger and the older Devi felt like two different people which they are, in a way They re the same person, but their life experience makes t I think that the concept of this book is fantastic I always wonder about the impact of a simple choice, so books about the different lives a person could be living because of some decisions they make are must reads for me This one is different from everything else I ve read, so I was really interested about it and I wasn t disappointed.I loved how the younger and the older Devi felt like two different people which they are, in a way They re the same person, but their life experience makes them two separate people, which we often forget about our younger self This book really made me realize how much a person, including myself, can change in a few years only Also, I ve always wondered about what I would think of my older self and vice versa, so seeing something like that in a book was very interesting to me.Although it s not explained all that much, I loved seeing the relationship aspect of this book Devi s relationship with Bryan has done bad things to her life, but it s not all black or white Through this experience, older Devi learns a lot about life and about her relationships with everyone around her, which was nice, since it s like her younger self taught her a few things I do wish that we could have seenof Bryan, since 1 he seems dreamy, and 2 he s from Qu bec, where I live I wasn t expecting that, but it made me like him evenHis relationship with Devi sounds pretty intense because of how much in love they are, but I would have loved to see some of it, because it sounds extraordinary.I loved this novelandas I continued reading it, so I would absolutely recommend it It s not too serious, but it makes you think about your choices in the present, but also in the future I ll make sure to look up the author s other novels now, since it s the first one I read from her

    Gimme a Call has been staring at me from my bookshelf for quite some time I bought it because I loved Ten Things We Did and because that s probably one of my favorite covers ever So when I found myself in the mood for something fun and fast I knew I had to pick up Gimme a Call It did not disappoint.Devi s heart is broken and she wishes that she could go back in time and make different decisions After a clumsy accident involving a cell phone and a mall fountain Devi s phone will only call her Gimme a Call has been staring at me from my bookshelf for quite some time I bought it because I loved Ten Things We Did and because that s probably one of my favorite covers ever So when I found myself in the mood for something fun and fast I knew I had to pick up Gimme a Call It did not disappoint.Devi s heart is broken and she wishes that she could go back in time and make different decisions After a clumsy accident involving a cell phone and a mall fountain Devi s phone will only call herself, from freshman year I love, love, love this concept Who wouldn t love to talk to the you from 3 years ago Wouldn t you be so tempted to change some things Maybe just a tiny bit That s pretty much the theme of Gimme a Call Except things don t work out exactly as planned, of course.The chapters in Gimme a Call alternate between Freshman Devi and Senior Devi That might sound like it would get confusing but it never was They each had a clear voice while still maintaining the same personality Oddly, I did like Freshman Devi better even though they were the same person Freshman Devi just seemed a little easier to relate to Senior Devi was pretty uptight They were both great in an accident waiting to happen kind of way They made the worst decisions but it was so fun to watch it all unfold.If you re looking for something super fun and entertaining, I definitely recommend Gimme a Call
