In The Do-Over, a teenage girl gets the chance to redo her past in this smart and charming YA novel by the author of When Life Gives You Demons, Jennifer Honeybourn.

Emelia has always wanted to fit in with the A crowd. So, when Ben, the hottest guy in school, asks her out, she chooses him over Alistair, her best friend—even after he confesses his feelings to her.

Six months later, Emilia wonders how her life would have been different if she’d chosen Alistair instead. Haunted by her mistake, she finds a magical solution that promises to rectify the past. As a result, everything in her life is different.

Different, but not better.

What happens if her second chance is her only chance to make things right?

Praise For The Do-Over

The Do-Over:

"The Do-Over is a fantastic mash-up: Pretty in Pink meets Big meets Sliding Doors. [It] will definitely keep you on your toes and keep you guessing as you barrel your way to the end. If you're anything like me, you will not be able to put it down until you slide, breathless, into the last chapter." —NPR

"Honeybourn infuses this lightly speculative rom-com with a compelling voice and...interesting twists." — Publishers Weekly, starred review

When Life Gives You Demons:

"This chatty, fun novel is the perfect beach read." —VOYA

"A quick, enjoyable romance with an entertaining side portion of monster. Readers who like their high-school drama with apocalyptic stakes will eat this up." —Booklist

“The tone is light and Shelby's first-person narration is comical . . . A rapid-paced read with plenty of action.” —School Library Journal

Wesley James Ruined My Life

"Honeybourn’s debut is everything readers expect and want from a lighthearted summer teen romance . . . Pitch-perfect." —School Library Journal
