Because sometimes it takes a whole week of Mondays to figure out what you really want....
When I made the
wish, I just wanted a do-over. Another chance to make things right. I
never, in a million years, thought it might actually come true...
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
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?
“The truth is, we are never just one thing. We
all have many titles and many labels, but far too often, we get trapped
inside a single definition. The Teacher's Pet, the Rule Follower, the
Cheerleader, the Athlete, the Princess, the Basket Case, the Criminal...
the Rock Star's Girlfriend. Whether we wrote that definition or it was
given to us, it somehow becomes our only identity. We get so lost in it
that we forget about all the other pieces that make up who we are.”
