I seriously loved this book and the adventure it took me on.
What if you died and woke up as your 18 year old self? Would you make the same decisions? These are the questions Veronica faces in this exciting and moving novel.

I Spy the Boy Next Door | Samantha Armstrong
Mehso-so

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
I think parts of the story dragged and occasionally the dialogue felt forced.
However the last 3 chapters had me gasping. I would have likely given 2.5 stars, but seriously that made the whole book worth it.
This is a quick and easy read. If you're intrigued, I'd say give this book a read. If you start it: Don't give up. It's worth it in the end.

I recieved this book from a goodreads giveaway and am giving my honest opinion. This book started a bit slowly, but honestly I think that was the point. I really enjoyed this story. It's not a new story, it's been told, but I loved the way Chip told it.
I felt all the emotions reading this book.
Pick it up and give it a chance.
