Addie Bell's Shortcut to Growing Up

Author: Jessica Brody
Publisher: Delacorte
Release Date: February 14, 2017

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Everyone makes wishes. Addie's just happened to come true. Seventh grader Addie Bell can’t wait to grow up. Her parents won’t let her have her own phone, she doesn’t have any curves, and her best friend Grace isn’t at all interested in make-up or boys. Then, on the night of her twelfth birthday, Addie makes a wish on a magic jewelry box to be sixteen…and wakes up to find her entire life has been fast-forwarded four years! Suddenly she has everything she’s always wanted (including a driver’s license and a closet full of cool clothes)! But Addie soon discovers that a lot more has changed than she expected—including her friendship with Grace. Can Addie turn back time and take back her wish…or has she lost the chance to experience what could have been the best years of her life?

Why I'm Excited:
This sounds adorable. Very Big and 13 Going on 30. I kind of love stories that follow switches. This also sounds like it focuses more on friendship over romance, which is nice. Overall, this just sounds fun, so I'll definitely be keeping my eyes open for this one.

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
