What's the Story?:

From "Devi's life isn't turning out at all like she wanted. She wasted the past 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 now that Bryan has broken up with her, she has nothing left.

Not even her stupid cell phone—she dropped it in the mall fountain. Now it only calls one number . . . hers. 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 all the wrong ones! Who better to take advice from than your future self?

Except . . .what if getting what you think you want changes everything?

Fans of Sarah Mlynowski's Magic in Manhattan series will love this hilarious new novel with a high-concept premise .

My Two Cents:

 There are many of us that wish we could go back and tell our younger selves something. Maybe it's as simple as not to do something or not to get your haircut. It could be cool or it might turn into a whole lot of trouble like Devi finds out in "Gimme a Call."

I listened to this book on audiobook and enjoyed it!


  1. Oh, I definitely day dream about redoing so much of my life (especially college. Oh, I was dumb then!).
