Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 71–0—Incoming ninth grader Kennedy faced a difficult choice: attend the prestigious prep school whose acceptance she had been awaiting for years or attend public school with the boy who finally asked her out. She picked the boy. Now it's senior year, and Kennedy is still with Austin, running the award-winning school newspaper and applying to Columbia. But part of her has always longed to be at Windsor Academy, and she second-guesses her past decision when she walks in on Austin kissing her best friend. Through a contrived set of events, Kennedy hits her head and wakes up as a different version of herself who attended Windsor and appears to have it all: great grades and popular friends. But it becomes evident that this alternate reality has its downsides, and Kennedy wonders if her first choice was right all along. Even though the execution of the alternate reality concept isn't perfect, the story is well written. Kennedy's friends in both realities are clearly characterized, and her family members, especially her physics-loving 11-year-old brother, steal the show. For those students who wonder what their choices might have cost them, this book suggests that the path not traveled might well have been untrod for a reason. VERDICT A fun and light YA novel that will find a home in most collections serving teens.—Kelly Jo Lasher, Middle Township High School, Cape May Court House, NJ

Review

“. . .The temptation to second-guess decisions is an instantly recognizable one, and Brody's execution of Kennedy's process is a thoughtful one. Readers will find themselves wondering "What if?" right along with Kennedy.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Brody crafts a lighthearted story very much in the vein of her A Week of Mondays (2016), examining the impact our choices can have on our lives, and shows that even the things that we most desire can come with unknown sacrifices . . . Brody’s novel captures the essence of high school through her well-developed characters. A whimsical exploration of the theory of the multiverse.” ―Booklist

“Brody examines ‘grass is greener’ attitudes and the rippling ramifications of one’s choices. Through Kennedy’s eyes, readers see how the pressure to stay on top takes a toll on Kennedy and her family, despite her glamorous surroundings in this parallel universe. With realistically flawed characters, plenty of humor, and much to say about the perils of wish fulfillment, Brody’s novel will appeal to anyone longing for a second chance at success.” ―Publishers Weekly

"Kennedy’s friends in both realities are clearly characterized, and her family members, especially her physics-loving 11-year-old brother, steal the show. For those students who wonder what their choices might have cost them, this book suggests that the path not traveled might well have been untrod for a reason . . . A fun and light YA novel that will find a home in most collections serving teens." ―School Library Journal

“Brody writes with peppy style . . . the ‘what if’ concept is perennially appealing, and readers may enjoy considering how Kennedy could have pulled off the best of both worlds.” ―Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

“This amusing and accessible novel explores the unexpected consequences resulting from taking a different path in life . . . [Will] resonate with teens who are in the midst of making some critical choices about school and relationships.” ―VOYA
