Hadley Jamison is shocked when she hears that her classmate, Archer Morales, has committed suicide. She didnt know the quiet, reserved guy very well, but that doesnt stop her from feeling there was something she could have done to help him. Hoping to find some sense of closure, Hadley attends Archers funeral. There, Hadley is approached by a man who calls himself Death and offers her a deal. If Hadley accepts, she will be sent back 27 days in time to prevent Archer from killing himself. But when Hadley agrees to Deaths terms and goes back to right the past, she quickly learns her mission is harder than she ever could have known.
Hadley soon discovers Archers reasons for being alone, and Archer realizes that having someone to confide in isnt as bad as hed always thought. But when a series of dangerous accidents starts pushing them apart, Hadley must decide whether she is ready to risk everythingincluding her lifeto keep Archer safe.

(Though admittedly, Hadley blushed every time he looked in her direction.) So why was his sudden suicide so painfully shocking? Hadley attends Archer's funeral, and on the way out the door, she meets a strange individual. Death. He offers her a deal: go back in time 27 days and change Archer's decision. Hadley takes the deal ... but there will be consequences.
The first thing I noticed about In 27 Days (aside from the gorgeous cover, of course!) was the fact that it was previously published on Wattpad, a website and app full of free fiction. I say, go Alison Gervais, a Wattpad success story!
Anyway, back to the review. I enjoyed In 27 Days. I made me think. My old roommate said once that her friend was depressed, which made her miserable to hang out with. So my roommate cut ties with her. I thought, yeah, it's good to take care of yourself ... but what if that was when a friend needs you most? When they are down and depressed. What if that was when they needed someone to stick it out and be a friend no matter what, because that is what true, loving friendship is.
That is what Hadley did for Archer in In 27 Days. She had to start from scratch, befriending someone who pushed everyone away, though he desperately needed someone to show they cared. It was beautiful and inspiring. Definitely difficult for Hadley, but she was up for the challenge. It's easier to keep pushing back when you know someone's life is on the line, I think. Though it is by no means easy. And it was harder for Hadley because of some of the "things" trying to keep Archer wanting to commit suicide.
Basically, I think this story was done well. It addressed the suicide question well and had a great romance and compelling plot. I really enjoyed it. And I highly recommend it.
I received a complementary copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
