Title: I Am Not Thirteen
Author: A.O. Monk

Yesterday, Amy was about to turn twenty-six. She didn’t have much: a decent job, too much student debt, an ex she couldn’t quite get over. Today, that’s all gone. Today is Amy’s birthday—her thirteenth birthday—and the first day of seventh grade. Her entire adult life vanished overnight.
Amy doesn’t know how she got here or how she can get back.
If she can get back. If she confides in the wrong person, she could be ridiculed, bullied, committed, even killed. So how can she tell the wrong person from the right one?
On top of all this, Amy has to survive middle school, again. All the bullies, mean girls, belittling teachers, and hormone-crazed hellions are still there. Every cutting comment hurts just as much the second time around. And what’s the story with that strange snake symbol she sees everywhere, or the guy who seems to know way more about her than he’s willing to tell?
My rating: 🌟🌟
You know those synopsis that just completely hooked you? This is the case for me for this book. A premise of an adolescent woman that suddenly goes back in time when she was 13. I love that premise so much and very excited to read this. But unfortunately this book was not a hit for me.😑
This book centers on Amy when she goes back in time when she was just a measly 13 year old teen. It features her life and her family and people from her future.
This book has time travel, cult, religion and a bit of fantasy on it (which doesn’t make sense to me). It also tackles family, mental health issues and tw for mention of substance abuse.
It has lots of concepts on one book that made a very chaotic read for me. I actually felt disconnected to the story and the characters. Scenes and settings are changing abruptly and confused me a lot. I also have issues with the characters as they are not making sense to me especially Leah.😒
It has a promising concept but unfortunately me and this book didn’t clicked.

My first low rated book this year.🙁
Though I was not able to enjoy this, I’ve seen some high ratings for this book and surely someone out there will relate with this book.👍
