When I made the wish, I just wanted a do-over. Another chance to make things right. I never, in a million years, thought it might actually come true...
Sixteen-year-old Ellison Sparks is having a serious case of the Mondays. She gets a ticket for running a red light, she manages to take the world’s worst school picture, she bombs softball try-outs and her class election speech (note to self: never trust a cheerleader when she swears there are no nuts in her bake-sale banana bread), and to top it all off, Tristan, her gorgeous rocker boyfriend suddenly dumps her. For no good reason!
As far as Mondays go, it doesn’t get much worse than this. And Ellie is positive that if she could just do it all over again, she would get it right. So when she wakes up the next morning to find she’s reliving the exact same day, she knows what she has to do: stop her boyfriend from breaking up with her. But it seems no matter how many do-overs she gets or how hard Ellie tries to repair her relationship, Tristan always seems bent set on ending it. Will Ellie ever figure out how to fix this broken day? Or will she be stuck in this nightmare of a Monday forever?
From the author of 52 Reasons to Hate My Father and The Unremembered trilogy comes a hilarious and heartwarming story about second (and third and fourth and fifth) chances. Because sometimes it takes a whole week of Mondays to figure out what you really want.

Jessica Brody is the author of several popular books for teens, including 52 Reasons to Hate My Father, and The Karma Club, the Unremembered trilogy, as well as two adult novels. She lives in Colorado.From School Library Journal:
Gr 8 Up—In the course of one Monday, Ellie Sparks gets a ticket for running a red light, fails a history quiz, gives a train wreck of a speech in front of the entire school, bombs softball tryouts, and, to top it all off, is dumped by her sexy rock star boyfriend. Just when Ellie thinks that things can't get much worse, she wakes up the next morning and quickly realizes that she is living the worst Monday of her life all over again. After the initial shock, the teen decides that if she is given this second chance to make things right, she has to do her very best to keep her boyfriend from dumping her again. Little does she know that there doesn't seem to be a way to make the cycle stop. Ellie will try everything in her power to make sure everything is set right in her life, even if it means reevaluating what right really is. This work touches upon something that many teenagers (and adults) have always wondered: How would things change if I could do it all over again? While this story is relatively predictable, it makes up for that by being compulsively readable and enjoyable. Ellie is an easily relatable narrator for whom readers will keep rooting. VERDICT A teenage spin on Groundhog Day that is sure to please those looking for a light and entertaining read.—Annalise Ammer, Henrietta Public Library, NY
