I wasn't sure what I'd think of how the point of view switches between Josie and 'everyone' but I really liked it. It was interesting to see what others thought of Josie's actions and why they did the things Josie wondered about. This book was different (in a good way) and sweet.

A different style from your average book. Really liked the different perspectives, that explained what happened a little more clearly.

I really liked how this book got in to the heads of all of the characters. I thought it was interesting how they labeled the chapters 1a and 1b, so that 1a was Josie's perspective and 1b showed everyone elses' thoughts and feelings. I read this book in one evening because it was so good!

Great story and characters, excellent reading for high school students, definitely not for 12 and under.

I really liked how the book showed the perspective of other characters besides the main character. I also liked how sometimes it told you what would happen in the future of the characters life.

Very entertaining book. It really made me visualize my HS days and I smiled thinking hoe much easier it would have been IF we could read minds.

Interesting. Makes you think about what goes on in other people''s heads. And how different their opinions are to our own.

I rarely reread books, but I did so with this one. Something about it just draws you in, I certainly recommend it.

I'd never thought that Leap Day could hold so much significance for people. Or, that so many things could happen in one day!

“No I am not okay. I've just been pulled out of play tryouts where I had to be the first to audition and everyone's trying out for the same parts, I just had a very bizarre conversation with the school secretary, Megan may be throwing up her cucumber sandwiches, I've broken five of the seven deadly sins in as many hours, a demon may be inside a girl in my world religions class, Grant Brawner called me by name, my license photo looks like a dead fish, I have to drive my friends all over town in two hours when I've never even driven without Dad before, none of my birthday wishes have come true yet, and now you're here with muffins like I'm in second grade? So, no, I am not ok.”
