The DoOver

3 stars of 5

The Do-Over by Jennifer Honeybourn

The Do-Over by Jennifer Honeybourn stars Emilia, a high school girl who loves spending time with her best friends Marisol and Alistair. Emilia’s life seems to be perfect, but then she is asked to prom by two guys: her crush Ben (the most popular boy in school), and her best friend Alistair. Not wanting to mess up her friendship, Emilia chooses Ben, but after dating for a few months, Emilia realizes that she isn’t content with her choice. When a fortune teller at the town fair offers Emilia a crystal that will take her back in time to redo a moment in her life, Emilia jumps at the chance to take it and reverse her choice. Although it seems like a good decision, going back in time and making changes doesn’t turn out the way Emilia expects. When one small tweak begins to unravel her life, Emilia doesn’t know what to do. This book explores Emilia’s life and the difference that each small choice truly makes.

Mercury Boys by Chandra Prasad

Mercury Boys by Chandra Prasad was an enthralling read. This book was filled with twists and turns that kept the reader hooked throughout the story. Mercury Boys combined high school life with a little bit of magic and history, creating a thrilling book. It features the main character, Saskia Brown, who moved across the country to Coventon, Connecticut. One night, she accidentally discovered something that could change her life. She found that a daguerreotype, one of the oldest forms of pictures, when mixed with mercury, could create a way to travel to the past.
