Landline




Synopsis (from Amazon): IF YOU GOT A SECOND CHANCE AT LOVE,

WOULD YOU MAKE THE SAME CALL?
As far as time machines go, a magic telephone is pretty useless.
TV writer Georgie McCool can't actually visit the past -- all she can do is call it, and hope it picks up.
And hope he picks up.
Because once Georgie realizes she has a magic phone that calls into the past, all she wants to do is make things right with her husband, Neal.
Maybe she can fix the things in their past that seem unfixable in the present. Maybe this stupid phone is giving her a chance to start over ...
Does Georgie want to start over?
From Rainbow Rowell, the New York Times bestselling author of Eleanor & Park andFangirl, comes this heart-wrenching - and hilarious - take on fate, time, television and true love.
Landline asks if two people are ever truly on the same path, or whether love just means finding someone who will keep meeting you halfway, no matter where you end up.



One (or more) Sentence Summary:  Quick and entertaining with a very unusual phone.  What a new and refreshing idea - a magic phone.  

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: I have read a few of Rainbow's books. Attachments was my first and my daughter and I really liked Eleanor and Park.  I would like to read Fan Girl and Carry On.


Rainbow Rowell writes books. Sometimes she writes about adults (ATTACHMENTS and LANDLINE). Sometimes she writes about teenagers (ELEANOR & PARK, FANGIRL and CARRY ON). But she always writes about people who talk a lot. And people who feel like they're screwing up. And people who fall in love.

When she's not writing, Rainbow is reading comic books, planning Disney World trips and arguing about things that don't really matter in the big scheme of things.

She lives in Nebraska with her husband and two sons.
