A Week of Mondays by Jessica Brody

A Week of Mondays by Jessica Brody
Published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux in August 2016

"Sixteen-year-old Ellison Sparks is having a serious case of the Mondays. She gets a ticket for running a red light, she manages to take the world’s worst school picture, she bombs softball try-outs and her class election speech (note to self: never trust a cheerleader when she swears there are no nuts in her bake-sale banana bread), and to top it all off, Tristan, her gorgeous rocker boyfriend suddenly dumps her. For no good reason!

As far as Mondays go, it doesn’t get much worse than this. And Ellie is positive that if she could just do it all over again, she would get it right. So when she wakes up the next morning to find she’s reliving the exact same day, she knows what she has to do: stop her boyfriend from breaking up with her. But it seems no matter how many do-overs she gets or how hard Ellie tries to repair her relationship, Tristan always seems bent set on ending it. Will Ellie ever figure out how to fix this broken day? Or will she be stuck in this nightmare of a Monday forever?" -- From Goodreads

Will you like it?
Oh this book.  I loved it.  I loved how Ellison grew as a character.  Ellison finally found herself, and didn't try to force her personality into some box because she was worried that she might offend her boyfriend.  This book was smart, and I hope teenagers take away the fact that they need to be their own person, especially with a significant other.

Disclosure: I borrowed this book from my local library.
