Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Shane has been doing college all wrong. Pre-med, stellar grades, and happy parents...sounds ideal -- but Shane's made zero friends, goes home every weekend, and romance...what's that? Her life has been dorm, dining hall, class, repeat. Time's a ticking, and she needs a change -- there's nothing like moving to a new country to really mix things up. Shane signs up for a semester abroad in London. She's going to right all her college mistakes: make friends, pursue boys, and find adventure! Easier said than done. She is soon faced with the complicated realities of living outside her bubble, and when self-doubt sneaks in, her new life starts to fall apart. Shane comes to find that, with the right amount of courage and determination one can conquer anything. Throw in some fate and a touch of magic - the possibilities are endless.

    In 2011, Shane Primaveri's college life has been dismal. To reset her introverted life, she signs up for a semester in London and an internship with a magazine—and lies to her parents, who believe she's pursuing her premed studies, not creative writing. Her life becomes wonderfully filled with taking weekend trips with her friends, updating her travel blog, writing for her classes, and embracing her internship. However, when Shane learns her crush has a girlfriend and her parents show up unannounced, her new life plummets into a death spiral. Jump ahead to 2017: Shane, making the rounds of medical-residency interviews, happens to be near her former crush's workplace. She drags him out for coffee, and through a twist of fate, they find themselves back in 2011 London for a do-over. This funny, poignant debut by a popular BookTuber is full of life and honest reflection, and it's packed with adventures that will charm readers, whether they've traveled abroad or not. Give this to anyone who enjoys tales of self-discovery and first love. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
