In 27 Days by HonorInTheRain
This book is AWESOME. I figured it’s appropriate, given Netflix’s latest trend (13 Reasons Why, cough) of delving into teen suicide and the secret, often-stigmatized lives & struggles of teenagers. But, In 27 Days explores these in a unique way, and still has relatable characters that are way too easy to fall in love with. And, of course, there is a sprinkle of supernatural, which just adds to the love I have for this book. There isn’t too much more I can say, but that’s alright, because this story speaks for itself.
Hadley Jamison doesn’t know what to think when she hears that her classmate, Archer Morales, committed suicide. She didn’t exactly know him, but that doesn’t stop her from feeling like there was something she could have done to help him.
So to Hadley’s surprise, on the very night of Archer’s funeral, she has a run in with Death himself and is offered the chance to go back in time to stop Archer from ending his life. The catch? She only has twenty-seven days to do it. And if Hadley doesn’t succeed? Well, she doesn’t want to think about that.
