#BookReview: The Do-Over by @Honeybourn #AuthorChat with @crossroadreview

Synopsis: A teenage girl gets the chance to redo her past in this smart and charming YA novel by the author of When Life Gives You Demons.

Emilia has always wanted to fit in with the A crowd. So, when Ben, the hottest guy in school, asks her out, she chooses him over Alistair, her best friend—even after he confesses his feelings to her.

Six months later, Emilia wonders how her life would have been different if she'd chosen Alistair instead. Haunted by her mistake, she finds a magical solution that promises to rectify the past. As a result, everything in her life is different. What happens if her second chance is her only chance to make things right?


Rating: ★★★★★
My Review: This newest story from author Jennifer Honeybourn was one that I couldn't put down.  It tells you that old saying of "Be careful what you wish for".  It also gives the message of not allowing past mistakes to dictate your future.  I loved how the story all unfolded and how it ended up.  Although we do not get an epilogue the ending was pretty perfect.  

I really love how Honeybourn's writing is so vast even though her stories are under 300 pages.  They do an amazing job with making you care about characters and giving you a full story that feels like its over 400 pages.  I can not wait to see what she does next!!
