Summary

#1 New York Times bestselling author! A New York Times Best Seller! Goodreads Choice Award Winner for Best Fiction of 2014! An Indie Next Pick!

From New York Times bestselling author of Eleanor & Park and Fangirl , Rainbow Rowell, comes a hilarious, heart-wrenching take on love, marriage, and magic phones.

Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble. That it's been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply-but that almost seems beside the point now.
Maybe that was always beside the point.

Two days before they're supposed to visit Neal's family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can't go. She's a TV writer, and something's come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her-Neal is always a little upset with Georgie-but she doesn't expect to him to pack up the kids and go without her.

When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she's finally done it. If she's ruined everything.

That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It's not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she's been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts. . . .

Is that what she's supposed to do?

Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Through the naturalness of her writing (and the acknowledgment that her heroine, Georgie, might be going insane), Rowell casts a spell strong enough for her audience to buy into a yellow, corded telephone as a portal to the past, one where Georgie speaks to her then-boyfriend, now-husband, Neal, to try and repair the damage they have done to their relationship. Refreshingly authentic is the fact that the troubles of their college romance are still the same as their adult married problems: Neal is not sure what he wants for his future, and Georgie's focus on her work as a TV writer distracts from her family obligations and changes her personality, especially where her writing partner, Seth, is concerned. Rowell knows romance writing and executes many conventions well: Christmastime setting, romantic triangle, and barriers to vital communication. Yet her tinkering with genre to explore love already in progress is the true gem. Fans and newcomers alike will marvel at this delightful, challenging, and heartfelt novel.--Jones, Courtney Copyright 2014 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Rowell follows up children's novels Fangirl and Eleanor and Park, both released in 2013, with an adult novel about the ups and downs of marriage. Georgie McCool (yes, that's her real name) is a successful TV writer with a handsome writing partner and a chance to finally take her career to the next level; she's just been offered her own pilot, which means no more writing jokes for characters she didn't invent. The only problem? Her husband, Neal, is growing increasingly discontent with Georgie's endless work and his status as stay-at-home dad to their daughters, Noomi and Alice. When Georgie cancels the family trip over Christmas, Neal takes the girls and leaves Georgie behind. This is where the story gets interesting. When Georgie calls Neal's home, she doesn't reach the husband who's on the verge of leaving her-she reaches the moody cartoonist she fell in love with during college, a past version of the current Neal. This magical plot device allows Georgie to investigate what drove her and Neal apart in flashbacks, and consider whether they were ever truly happy. Rowell is, as always, a fluent and enjoyable writer-the pages whip by. Still, something about the relationship between Georgie and Neal feels hollow, like it's missing the complexity of adult love, despite the plot's special effects. First printing of 100,000.
