'One of the best love stories I've ever read.' Angie Thomas, bestselling author of The Hate U Give. From debut author justin a. reynolds comes The Opposite of Always, a razor-sharp, hilarious and heartfelt novel about the choices we make, the people we choose and the moments that make life worth reliving. Perfect for fans of Nicola Yoon and John Green. When Jack and Kate meet at a party, he knows he's falling - hard. Soon she's meeting his best friends and Kate wins them over as easily as she did Jack. But then Kate dies. And their story should end there. Yet Kate's death sends Jack back to the beginning, the moment they first meet, and Kate's there again. Healthy, happy, and charming as ever. Jack isn't sure if he's losing his mind. Still, if he has a chance to prevent Kate's death, he'll take it. Even if that means believing in time travel. However, Jack will learn that his actions are not without consequences. And when one choice turns deadly for someone else close to him, he has to figure out what he's willing to do to save the people he loves. 'Read this one, reread it, and then hug it to your chest.' Becky Albertalli, bestselling author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda… (mais)

⭐⭐⭐⭐(4/5)

I was expecting this book to be something totally different than what it was. The synopsis led me to believe it was a sci-fi time travel tale focused on fixing sad past mistakes, much like last year’s tear-jerking Netflix original See You Yesterday. And it is all of that, but unlike the film, my main reaction while reading this was… …EWWWWW. ICK. GAG. This book is just so…so SWEET. If See You Yesterday is hot sauce, this book is maple syrup. But gag reflex aside, I liked it. It’s cute. It’s light. It’s funny. It’s totally not what I expected or usually like, but it won me over.

High school senior Jack falls for college freshman Kate and with a little help from his ridiculously loving friends and family woos her in a dozen different cutesy ways that all seem to start with bowls of cereal. Then she dies, and Jack spends the rest of the book inexplicably Groundhog Day-ing his way through the same summer over and over again, trying to help his friends and save his lady love.

**The next paragraph contains mild spoilers**

A few unexpectedly pleasant things occurred to me while reading this. One is that I’m not sure I’ve ever read a book with the main character living with sickle cell anemia before and I appreciated seeing that on the page, even if it was played for narm in the end. The other is that it was really nice to read about a bunch of unapologetic Blerds in a light, fun happy-ending story where racism is not the center of their lives (except for right near the end and I thought including a shooting was a very well-intentioned misstep on the part of the writer.)

**spoilers over**


It’s not perfect, but it’s way better than a first novel has any right to be and after a slow start before we get into the time travel bits, it’s entirely charming. 4 stars and a delicious bowl of Froot Loops to Opposite of Always.

I cried, smiled and laughed with this book. I don't know exactly what I like so much about it. Maybe it's the writing style, simple, relatable and funny. Maybe it's the characters, that are written so beautifully. Maybe it's the message of the story. I just love this book so much, I can't!!! ( )

A very sweet, funny, heartfelt romance, a "Groundhog Day" for teens. Nice diverse cast of characters. ( )

Overall, this was a fun read. The time travel, groundhog day, type storyline was really interesting and is something I haven't really seen done like this before in a YA book. I felt that the characters were really likable and that the banter and dialogue between Jack and Katie was actually realistic, something I haven't seen in YA recently. One thing I really did not like about this book was Jack's lack of surprise of the fact that he was time traveling. It was like he showed up months in the past and didn't really see much issue with it, he just went on doing his thing. I was also very disappointed with the ending. The readers had to go through numerous times of Jack going through the same storyline just for the ending to be, well bland, basically. ( )
