Author: Gabrielle Zevin

Publisher: Bloomsbury Books

Rating: 3.5 out of 5

Summary: Above all, mine is a love story. And like most love stories, this one involves chance, gravity and a dash of head trauma. It began with a coin toss. The coin came up tails; I was heads. When Naomi wakes up in a hospital bed, she has no idea how she got there or what has happened in the last three years of her life. She doesn’t remember that her parents are divorced, or who her friends are at school, and she doesn’t even know if she’s got a boyfriend or not. When Naomi gets back to school, she starts piecing the fragments of the last three and a half years together, and soon it is clear that she may not want to be united with her past quite as she left it.

This book was okay. It was funny and quick to read. However, I cannot wait to read the other book by this author: Elsewhere. This looks so much better than the one I’ve just read and the ideas are creative. I liked this book still but Elsewhere looks stunning. Overall, this book was okay.
