Life is at crisis point for 14-year-old Alice. Her mum is ruining her life, her dad's getting remarried and she has to wear a hideous bridesmaid's dress, she can't stand her little brother Rory, and Sasha, the most popular girl at school, hates her guts.
Then something very odd happens: Alice falls off a roundabout and finds that she is seven years old again. Reliving the past with her 14-year-old consciousness, she gains a disconcerting new perspective on her family and friendships, and she is forced to confront the truth of her parents' separation and question her former loyalties.
Returning to her teenage self, Alice discovers that her experience has brought about some extraordinary changes and that life will never be the same again.
* A deceptively easy-to-read, make-you-stop-and-think story from a vibrant new talent.
* Brilliantly observed portrait of a teenage girl's world, funny but incisive.
* Our teen focus group found the book compelling and thought-provoking: "I love the idea of being able to go back in time and change things and would love to be able to see myself at 7 with a teenager's eye."
"I always like books about everyday problems teenagers go through, but this ... really makes you think."
