Living Backwards Book Review

Living Backwards
by Tracy Sweeney

Genre – Chick Lit
Rating – PG13

Book Description
Twenty-nine-year-old Jillian Cross refuses to believe that a pair of skinny jeans has led to her untimely demise. Life just isn’t that cruel. But when an overly-enthusiastic attempt at squeezing herself into them leads her to fall and lose consciousness, she is faced with just that possibility. When she awakens with both a bruised ego and a bump on her head, she’s not in her tiny apartment but her childhood bedroom circa 1999-the spring of her senior year in high school. Jillian knows that time travel isn’t logical.

But then again, neither was her decision to wear skinny jeans. As she attempts to navigate her way through the halls of Reynolds High, walking the same path and making the same choices she made years before, she knows that any change she makes can have a catastrophic effect on her future. But when she strikes up an unexpected friendship with motorcycle-riding, cigarette-smoking Luke Chambers, can she pretend to be the same shy girl she once was? At least she has her pink sparkly flask to take the edge off. One little change won’t hurt, right?

My Opinion
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to time travel? In Living Backwards Jillian Cross travels back in time ten years/a few weeks before her high school graduation. While Jillian is back in high school she tries to fix her two best friends problems. During her second time in high school she also gets to know Luke and falls in love but is worried about his future so she decides to leave him without an explanation. After another fall/hit in the head Jillian is back in the future and realizes things have changed. Everything seems to be going good for her best friends but her own life is pretty sad because she is still in love with Luke. You will just have to read this book to find out how it all ends. It is pretty long but I did not want to put it down because I couldn't wait to see what was gonna happen next. I loved this book and the pretty pink flask!

I received a free ebook from Orangeberry Book Tours for this review.
