by Jenny Colgan

St. Martin's Griffin | January 17, 2012 | Hardcover

The Boy I Loved Before is rated 1 out of 5 by 1.

While attending her best friend Sashy's wedding, Flora Scurrison realizes that this monotonous, nine-to-five, cookie-cutter life is exactly what's in store for her. While it might be okay for Sashy, it's certainly not what she envisioned for herself when she was sixteen. So when her boyfriend proposes to her during the reception, Flora makes a wish to go back and do it all over again. The next morning she wakes up to find that she has been given the ultimate second chance--she's sixteen again. As Flora navigates school, first loves--new and old--and discovers what it really means to make adult choices, will she stay in her new body or try and find her way home?

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not up to Snuff I love Chick Lit books, but for some reason I just couldn't wrap my head around this one. I thought it was boring. The story couldn't keep me interested enough to want to continue on, and I found myself skipping pages and reading the ending, which in my opinion wasn't all that great.

Editorial Reviews

The Boy I Loved Before is a triumph. It's witty and hilarious and so clever, with a compulsive story that kept me flicking the pages over madly, right to the end. I loved it.
