Hadley Jamison is shocked when she hears that her classmate, Archer Morales, has committed suicide. She didn't know the quiet, reserved guy very well, but that doesn't stop her from feeling there was something she could have done to help him.

Hoping to find some sense of closure, Hadley attends Archer's funeral. There, Hadley is approached by a man who calls himself Death and offers her a deal. If Hadley accepts, she will be sent back 27 days in time to prevent Archer from killing himself. But when Hadley agrees to Death's terms and goes back to right the past, she quickly learns her mission is harder than she ever could have known.

Hadley soon discovers Archer's reasons for being alone, and Archer realizes that having someone to confide in isn't as bad as he'd always thought. But when a series of dangerous accidents starts pushing them apart, Hadley must decide whether she is ready to risk everything - including her life - to keep Archer safe. (Goodreads)


This book kind of had a strange plot line. This girl Hadley randomly goes to a funeral of a kid she hardly knows and feels so bad for his family that when a stranger offers her the chance to go back in time and save him she does. Nice but strange jester in my eyes. She also is willing to sign a document that is in another language that she can’t read. From all of my reading of supernatural books, I know this is a huge no no! After all of that weirdness the story is kind of cute. She slowly becomes friends with Archer and his family and learns why he might have killed himself. She fights off accident causing demons and works really hard to save a life. It was kind of a different fun plot. It was a tad predictable, but still a fast read. I would have liked to see more background story for the characters and to see how they’re all connected more. I loved the theme of the story which is to learn to appreciate life, not only our own but others too. Teens of any age will probably gobble this one up.
