Facebook Jeanie described in one phrase would be: A breath of fresh air.
It has humor (and a lot of it!), it has romance, and it is also a bit touching at times.
When Clara has a chance to go back in time to college and try to mend things with her then-boyfriend (instead of staring at his pictures everyday on facebook!) she jumps right at the chance.
Have you ever wondered how your life would be different if you could go back and change something?
Clara gets to figure out!
This book allows you to explore those thoughts without it actually happening to you. She goes through some pretty hilarious scenarios from living I a huge house while having an affair with a crazy man wearing a thong and dancing to Im Sexy and I Know It, to being a hippy with a limp leg and snake jewelry.
I found myself laughing out loud MANY times while reading this book.
I mean… cat turban, anyone?!
5/5 stars. It was hilarious, it was sweet, and just an all-around complete book.

Synopsis from the author Addison Westlake
"It's Bridget Jones meets "Groundhog Day"...
Ever wonder if you made the right choice? What if you could go back and find out?
31-year-old Clara is in a steady relationship—with Facebook. Every night after her depressing bureaucratic job (so much for saving the world), Clara comes home to her empty apartment (yes, she was dumped) and settles down with a pint of ice cream for some good, old-fashioned Facebook stalking. It's her college boyfriend, The One Who Got Away. With the bod of a God and a net worth of umpteen bamillion, he now has the perfect life—everything she could have had if she hadn't been so, so stupid.
But, wait. Jeanie from Facebook shows up at Clara's job. There's a new app they're beta-testing and Clara's perfect for it. That night she clicks on it and... nothing happens. But the next morning when Clara wakes up at noon, hung over, listening to her roommate blow-drying her hair and singing "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It", she realizes she's back in college. With the chance to do it all over again.
Back in the world of frat parties, BFFs, and long-suffering, overlooked lab partners, join Clara as she discovers what it really means to hit the reset button on life. What could possibly go wrong? And, this time, can she get it right?"
I am a fan of Addison's writing. If you search way back in my blog to last year, (which I wont make you do so here is a link - Christmas in Wine Country ) I reviewed her novel Christmas in Wine Country Available Here!
Not only is she a wonderful author, she is a pleasure to work with and I cannot wait to read her new novel. So, do not forget, it will be available on October 1st, 2013 and I strongly recommend picking it up.
Also, stay tuned because I will be posting a review of it as soon as I finish!
