Publisher's Summary

Jenny Colgan's laugh-out-loud funny The Boy I Loved Before is a new comedy about second chances.

If you could do it all again knowing what you know now....

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 16.

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 16 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 to find her way home?

Horrible Book—DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY

I usually love the books by this author but this one is awful. It makes no sense —you think it’s a time travel type story but it’s not and it jumps around and nothing makes sense. I couldn’t even make myself finish it. Take a hard pass on this one!! Wish I had my money back.

Always like the story...don’t like the voice.

I love Jenny Colgan rom-com books, but the narrator isn’t my cup of tea. A bit harsh to the ears.
