Put this book at the top of your must read list!" (Jen Lancaster New York Times bestselling author)

Simultaneously funny and sad, heartbreaking and hopeful, Reid has crafted a story of love lost and found that is as timely as it is timeless." (Katja Millay author of The Sea of Tranquility)

Maybe a teenager would enjoy this sophomoric storytelling, but I found myself skipping paragraphs, then whole chapters, and then finally flipped to the very end to see what all the fuss was about. The characters are boring and the plot is tiresome and totally contrived. Yes, I was lured into buying this based on the premise: two different decisions made on the same night leading to two different outcomes for Hannah, the story's protagonist. But, in the end, the lives contrasted are not all that different: Hannah remains dull, indecisive and not at all three-dimensional (for example, I was SO VERY TIRED of hearing about Hannah's love of cinnamon rolls that I did a search in my kindle for the word 'Cinnamon' and found the author mentions it eighty - yes, EIGHTY times - did this book not have an editor?) and I really didn't care who she settled down with in the end - the old boyfriend Ethan or the doltish male nurse Henry. And you won't either - so save your time and money and skip this one.
I found it intriguing to follow the two timelines and the events that follow each of the decisions. I was conflicted with knowledge I gained from one timeline that wasn’t known in the other, which led to a series of other choices and decisions. It truly does demonstrate a domino effect that can happen based on a very simple decision. I have mixed feelings and wrestled with the endings, but ultimately was OK with them. I appreciated the consistency of some of the primary relationships, and I have admit that this book really did give cause for contemplation about various decisions I have made, and continue to make. This was a selection for my book club, and it gave us lots to talk about! I liked the book overall.
