A Week of Mondays by Jessica Brody
Genre: Romance, Contemporary
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?
If my Monday went wrong, I’d like a chance to redo it. The idea of this book is interesting and the book itself was enjoyable. I suggest you read this book even though it’s a bit lengthy. Some parts may sound repetitive, but the author really tries to differentiate the seven Mondays.
*Spoiler* : Ellison wants to prevent Tristan from breaking up with her for six days. On the last day, it finally happened. I was happy because I ship them. Then she changes her mind and goes for her friend, Owen. This was an unsatisfying end to the book.
