My daughter read this for school and asked me to read it too. It’s essentially the movie “Groundhog Day” for tweens.

I enjoyed it. It was well-written and had a nice theme of redemption and the need to be good to other people. Much like the movie, the protagonists can’t continue their lives until they’ve learned their lessons.

The pacing in the third act is nicely frantic. I could totally see this as a Disney movie.
