"New Hampshire high school junior Lizzie Davenport has been reincarnated from Regency Era, England ... but she doesn't know it yet.
Then Drew Carmichael transfers into Lizzie's school at the beginning of the year, and she feels a connection to him, almost like she knows him. She can't stop thinking about him, but whenever she tries talking with him about the mysteries behind her feelings, he makes it clear that he wants nothing to do with her. Reaching him is even more difficult because she has a boyfriend, Jeremy, who has started to become full of himself after being elected co-captain of the varsity soccer team, and her flirtatious best friend Chelsea starts dating Drew soon after his arrival. So why can't she seem to get him out of her mind?
Even though Lizzie knows she should let go of her fascination with Drew, the pair of them soon find that fighting fate isn't going to be easy."
Lizzie has got everything going for her. She’s a straight-A student with a long-standing relationship with her boyfriend, Jeremy, and a best friend since kindergarten, Chelsea. But her seemingly stable world is rocked with the arrival of a new student, Drew.
The first instance their eyes met, she had a feeling of deja-vu. And she can’t shake the strong attraction she feels for him every time is near him. It could be just a crush, right? But when it seems that Drew feels the same, and coincidences just happens so often, Lizzie gets the feeling that Drew might know something that she just can’t remember yet.
Debut author, Michelle Madow, was inspired to write this story from Taylor Swift’s music video of Love Story. In her own tale of reincarnations and second chance on love, Michelle Madow tells the story of Drew and Lizzie, who both need to find out if their love is worth the second shot, or just accept that their love is just destined to fall.
I had fun reading the story, each chapter has intrigued me to read further, and find out the backstory of Lizzie and Drew. And with the conflicts surrounding them, how can they be given a second chance or would they even want it?
A good read love story that will pinch your heart and reminds you that you make your own love story.
