Groundhog Day gets a hilarious French twist in this delightful upper middle grade novel about first crushes and friendship. When an eighth-grade class trip to Paris goes horribly wrong, the worst day of one girl’s life keeps happening over and over.
Fourteen-year-old Eve Hollis is ready to push through her fears and finally let her crush know how she feels. And what better place to tell him than on top of the Eiffel Tower in the City of Love? But things don’t go as planned, and Eve is sure she’s had the worst day of her life—until she wakes up the next morning to realize the whole disaster of a day is happening again. She’s trapped in a time loop.
Desperate to make it stop, Eve will have to take some big risks and learn from her mistakes or be destined to live the most awkwardly painful day of her life over and over again, forever.
