What would you do if you had a choice of going back and changing something in your past, would you do it?

Katie had it all, she was working on opening a new restaurant and she has an apartment above a restaurant that she helped build when she was younger, but Katie is lonely and missing a former love.
Things could have been perfect between Max and Katie but she blew it and now she is still missing what she lost and wishing she could change her past. Little does Katie know that there is a house spirit living in the restaurant she currently lives above with mushrooms that have the power to change the past as long as it took place inside the restaurant she currently lives above. The house spirit decides to give a mushroom to Katie along with a notebook to write down what she wants to change. Katie uses it to prevent an accident in which a waitress got really hurt at the restaurant and learns that the mushroom worked by making it so Katie can prevent the accident from even happening.

Katie wants to change more and more things from her past which becomes possible when she finds the place that the house spirit has been getting the mushrooms. With the new found power as the grasp of Katie's hand she begins to change more and more things until everything begins to tangle. Katie begins to learn that you can't change things without loosing something in return like memories of a life you have created. Now Katie wishes everything would just go back to normal without all the mess that she has created. Katie learns that she should be careful what you wish for.


Thoughts: I have read all of the Scott Pilgrim series by Bryan Lee O'Malley so I went in to this book with high hopes. Needless to say that I wasn't disappointed, this book had everything that I loved about Scott Pilgrim just wrapped in a different story line. I enjoyed the humor the most about Bryan Lee O'Malley's work it also doesn't hurt that art work is awesome as well. I wouldn't change anything about this book and I would recommend it to people who love graphic novels or who are just looking for something different to read. Trust me you won't be disappointed.
