If you could live your life again, what would you do differently?

After a near-fatal family catastrophe and an unexpected romantic upheaval, Adelaide Buchwald finds herself catapulted into a summer of wild possibility, during which she will fall in and out of love a thousand times—while finally confronting the secrets she keeps, her ideas about love, and the weird grandiosity of the human mind.

A raw, funny story that will surprise you over and over, Again Again gives us an indelible heroine grappling with the terrible and wonderful problem of loving other people.

What if falling in love had infinite possibilities and multiple universes exist? Adelaide Buchwald lives with her teacher father at Alabaster, a boarding school, and walks the five dogs of teachers who are away for the summer. She also must complete a class project to remove herself from academic probation after a disastrous junior year. Miserable after her breakup with Mikey Double L and missing her mother and brother who have remained at their family home because of her brother’s addiction issues, Adelaide finds she is not all that inclined to do the make-up work. Chance meetings with different boys result in flights of fancy and scenarios of attraction, rejection, and friendship. The question of reality versus imagination is not always easy to determine; but in these multiverse stories, Adelaide slowly comes to terms with family, herself, and ultimately, different kinds of love. Lockhart’s latest book highlights her creativity in both writing and format. Different fonts and typeface help the reader determine reality from fantasy—or does it? This is a thoughtful book of infinite possibilities. Adelaide is a delightful character who makes the plot completely believable in all the worlds in which she exists. A lyrical read that’s also fun as it addresses myriad truths.
