“A warm, wonderful (and hilarious!) story about learning to be your own hero.
I h this book like crazy!!!!” —Lauren Myracle, author of Peace, Love and Baby Ducks
Devi’s life isn’t turning out at all like she wanted. She wasted 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 since Bryan broke up with her right before senior prom, she has nothing left. Not even a working cell phone—she dropped hers in the mall fountain. Now it only calls one number . . . her number. 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 the wrong ones! If freshman Devi takes her advice, they can hold on to their friends, get into a good—no, incredible—college, be an extracurricular superstar, and most importantly, spare themselves the heartbreak of Bryan! Fourteen-year-old Devi isn’t so sure, though. She likes Bryan. She’s happy. But who better to listen to than your future self . . . right?
