If you are a fan of Groundhog Day or Freaky Friday, you will love this book!

Has anything even happened in your life that made you wish you could have a do-over? Have you ever wondered how it might have been different if you had the opportunity to back up time and do it over again? Of course, that would never be possible. Or, would it?

Amanda and Leo, born on the same day, have more than just their birthday in common. Could it really take 11 years of having birthdays together to discover what it is? And once they do discover it, will they be able to do anything about it?

What could possibly be so powerful that it would cause you to wake up on one day only to discover that today is really yesterday, repeated?
