People often say, "I feel like I've been run over by a truck." Katie actually was. On a sunny morning bike ride in Brooklyn, 24-year-old Katie McKenna was forever changed when she was run over by an 18-wheeler. Being crushed under a massive semi wasn't something Katie should have survived. After 10 hours of emergency surgery, she woke to find herself in a body and a life that would never be the same.

Should be required reading for all med students, nursing students and potential patients and the family of patients to see the NEED for a patient to have an advocate. I'm not a fan of the language, but the story is worth getting past it. So wonderfully told.

In 1988, 43-year-old Jeff Winston died of a heart attack. But then he awoke, and it was 1963; Jeff was 18 all over again, his memory of the next two decades intact. This time around, Jeff would gain all the power and wealth he never had before. This time around he'd know how to do it right. Until next time.

Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

very disappointed that this is only an Abridged version. I have read these books before and I'm rereading them in preparation for Love Story, which comes out next month. there are huge gaps missing in this story. I recommend reading a full unabridged version as there isn't an unabridged version available on Audible

Narration like listening to a valley girl, very sing-song. Annoying. Would not buy another book narrated by her.
