3.5 stars. A nice, light read that had a surprisingly serious message behind the fun premise. I loved the concept of having a do-over and found that it made me think a lot about what I would do if I had the same opportunity as the three protagonists.

Loved this book. It makes you question if you would go back if given the opportunity. A quick and easy read.
