More About A Week of Mondays by Jessica Brody
 
 
 
Overview

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.

Brody (the Unremembered trilogy) brings fresh twists to a familiar Groundhog Day–esque premise. Monday, September 26, is not a good day for high school junior Ellie Sparks. She gets drenched on the way to school, flubs a campaign speech to become class v-p, and bombs her softball tryout. All of this pales in comparison to getting dumped by her boyfriend, Tristan, after a fight. Desperate to win him back, Ellie makes a frantic wish: “Please just let me do it over.” And when she wakes up the next morning, it’s Monday all over again. After the second Monday turns out as badly as the first, Ellie gets five more chances to make things right. Watching Ellie relive her horrible day is something like peeling an onion. Each Monday, a piece of her people-pleaser facade melts away, revealing more of her real self—the self only her best friend Owen appreciates and, it turns out, loves. Adeptly balancing comedy and heartbreak, Brody’s fantastical romance raises thoughtful questions about true love and the power to change one’s destiny. Ages 12–up. Agent: Jim McCarthy, Dystel & Goderich Literary Management. (Aug.)
