Delightful, YA romance. I actually read this to preview it to be sure it was appropriate for my 12 year old (resounding, yes!), and enjoyed it way more than I should have. Entertaining and sweet, especially for the John Hughes fans out there. ( )

This book was so cute! Once I started it, I couldn't put it down. I loved Andie; she seemed like such a sweet girl. The author did a great job with her voice in the book, it definitely read as a teenager.

The book made me laugh quite a few times with its cute quips, like "Fortunately my dad doesn't believe in diagnosis in adolescence." I also really enjoyed Andie dropping "truth bombs" on everyone in the high school.

I totally bought her frustration at trying over and over again and feeling like her efforts aren't making any difference.

Overall, I definitely recommend, especially if you're a fan of John Hughes, Pretty in Pink, Sixteen Candles, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, or Groundhog Day. ( )

What happens when you get stuck in time, re-living the first day in your new school?

Andie is a teenage girl, who loves movies. She is the type of person that knows exactly what to say… after it’s too late to say it. She is quirky, cutishly nerdy, and adorable in a silly way. And when she moves to Punxsutawney (I don’t think I’ll ever pronounce this town correctly), on the first day in her new school, she gets caught up in an endless loop of having to re-live those 24 hours again and again.

As in the movies, she is convinced that the curse can be broken with a true love’s kiss, she goes on a mission to get the boy. But is he the right one? And is true love what breaks the curse?

Not knowing how to end the loop, Andie tries to get first kiss with a guy she thinks is her true love, and when that doesn’t work, she suddenly tries to make the different types of people hang out together and realise that it doesn’t matter how you look like, to be a good person.


I really loved the idea of the loop in a high-school theme, and that was the main reason that I wanted to read this book really badly. I also loved that the main idea of this book was that looks don’t matter, and don’t judge a book by its cover, but I think that the author took this meaning way too far into the book, and it became too unrealistic, that it was laughable.

I enjoyed the layout of the different types of kids in the school, the jocks, the cheerleaders, the goths, the school-paper girls, the nerds. They were all described very realistically, and I enjoyed the times when we would realise that prejudice doesn’t matter. I can relate to a lot of this, because I was hanging out with both nerds and jocks in my high-school times, being a sports person and being a ‘’weirdo’’ that wants to read at the same time.

I also somehow managed to like the movie references, even though at moments, they are too overwhelming, and sometimes completely unrelated to the plot in place.

What I didn’t like, is how Andie kept changing in order to fit, how her behaviour changed, and her mindset during different days. I did not like this at all. I think that a person should always keep being themselves, no matter who they talk to. Doing the thinks she kept doing, only to be liked by one guy was miserable. Ladies – you are beautiful, no matter what you wear or how you do your hair. If that guy really likes you, he wouldn’t care about all these things and he would see within.

In retrospective, this was an enjoyable read. I am glad I read it, but somehow I think I might’ve been too old to read it now. But for you guys that are still in high-school, or love reading about high-school, this one is definitely worth your time.

Thank you to Netgalley and Blink, for providing me a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Andie has always wished that her life was like a movie...but this wasn't what she had in mind.

The summer before Andie's senior year of high school, her family moved to Punxsutawney, PA. Andie's mother has raised her to be a movie buff, mostly by watching her favorite movies from the 1980's. Andie naturally gravitates towards the town's movie theatre where she meets Colton. Colton seems like the perfect candidate for Andie's first kiss. However, the evening before Andie's first day she falls asleep on the couch watching Pretty in Pink in a pink polk-a-dot dress. After a not-so-stellar first day where Andie loses Colton's interests to classmate, Kaia, Andie wishes she could have a do-over. Her wish might just come true.

Combining some of my favorite movies from the 80's and early 90's, Pretty in Punxsutawney is a fun and heartwarming journey. At this point in my life I identified more better with Andie's mom, but easily found myself immersed in Andie's story. I could feel myself cringe along with Andie as her first day of school was less than ideal, especially with Colton. I loved when the Groundhog's Day aspect came in and Andie repeated her first day over and over with different variations while desiring to make Colton her boyfriend. Many of the variations picked up on other movies such as Breakfast Club and Ferris Buehler's Day Off. I especially enjoyed when Andie began to try out a different clique each first day and begins to realize what her purpose might really be. I do wish that my favorite first day with the dance party was how Andie was able to stop the cycle; however, I'm still glad that things were able to wrap up the way they did. Overall, a very endearing and lighthearted Young Adult read with plenty of nostalgia for older readers.
