#1 New York Times bestselling author! A New York Times Best Seller! Goodreads Choice Award Winner for Best Fiction of 2014! An Indie Next Pick!
From New York Times bestselling author of Eleanor & Park and Fangirl, Rainbow Rowell, comes a hilarious, heart-wrenching take on love, marriage, and magic phones.
Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble. That it's been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply-but that almost seems beside the point now.
Maybe that was always beside the point.
Two days before they're supposed to visit Neal's family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can't go. She's a TV writer, and something's come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her-Neal is always a little upset with Georgie-but she doesn't expect to him to pack up the kids and go without her.
When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she's finally done it. If she's ruined everything.
That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It's not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she's been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts. . . .
Is that what she's supposed to do?
Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?

This book was so unrealistic it should be a child's fairy tale. It was confusing at first and by the time I realized the phone's story, it was impossible for me to endure the senselessness of it. I just don't quit books but this is one I could have just stopped.
Fluffy fun winter read
With this story lacks a
in sophistication, it makes up for in an interesting concept. This book is the perfect easy winter time read. It's fluffy and romantic and completely unrealistic, but that's okay because it's an accurate depiction of real life struggles in marriage. Definitely middle of the road but worth the time to read, if you're looking for something simple to enjoy without investing mass quantities of brain power.
Maybe It's Because I live in LA...
And am married, am thinking about kids and have a crazy career that keeps me really busy and away from my husband often...but this book hit so close to home there were parts that made me uncomfortable...in a good way. I read it in two days. I couldn't put it down. Definitely a great read and a solid thought-starter on love and marriage and what it all means.
