What worked: This is an addictive, fast-paced read where Death makes a proposition for Hadley to go back in time to stop a classmate from killing himself. I got swept up in the drama as Hadley goes out of her way to befriend Archer. Hadley is one of those stereotypical 'rich' NYC girls while Archer's family owes a coffee house. They're different in so many ways, yet also alike. While Hadley's parents are rich successful business people, she's often left alone in their apartment. Her quest to save Archer pushes her to step outside her comfort zone.
The strength of this story has to be how Hadley goes out of her way to get to Archer. There's a lot behind his standoffish behavior. As Hadley gets closer, secrets come out about what might have behind Archer's deadly decision. I liked Hadley's determination and spunk even when Archer goes out of his way to let her know he's not interested.
Another huge plus has to be how the author breaks down the stereotypes behind what a suicidal person looks and acts like. Archer has a large loving family but also a terrible secret. Hadley refuses to ignore his rudeness at first as she tries hard to reach out to him.
A twist on Groundhog's Day meets Death, this paranormal tale will have readers turning the pages to see if Hadley stops Archer from making a tragic mistake.
