What if you had said yes? The moments that change everything… One Day meets Sliding Doors in this outstanding debut that is causing a buzz across the publishing world
Some moments can change your life for ever. Have you ever wondered, what if…?

I liked this. It was a very character focused book. It was interesting to see how their lives were changed by just a few small decisions. Though as much as I enjoyed it I don’t think it was very realistic. It is very romanticised, the thought that a tiny decision like going for a drink could so entirely change your life.

Another slight technical problem I had was that it was quite difficult to tell what timeline I was in. However this may be because I was reading an eARC and the headings were not quite clear enough, as such it was easy to miss them entirely. Other than that it was a pretty good book.

    I dunno. When I think about the root causes of so many things that are important to me now…they were really small decisions that initially brought about the situations where I got interested in item A or B, or met person X or Y.

      I would say its more a series of small decisions. I can’t really think of any time in my life where everything changed based entirely on one decision.

        Perhaps that is a more accurate way to tell a story, but even in those situations…there was always one initial instance that sparked the chain of follow-up decisions that, say, led to forming a friendship that’s altered the course of one’s life.

    I was at the book store the other day, wasn’t sure if to pick it up. Maybe I’ll just get it to read on my commute times.

    I like the idea of this book! It might because I’ve been in a situation where my “yes” changed a lot – when I said yes to take a year abroad. It has changed my life entirely!
