Summary
"Kate is a 35-year-old social media obsessed woman, who, after being jilted at her rehearsal dinner, discovers she can change her life by what she writes in her Facebook status. Heartbroken and confused over why she was left, she wishes to go back in time--to before her fiance Max, broke things off-- so she can try to save their relationship. Because it turns out, the reason Max ended their engagement has a lot to do with Kate's close friend and co-worker, Courtney. Kate, with all of the power at her finger tips, continuously writes status updates to try keep them apart, but for reasons she doesn't understand, she ends up pushing them together over and over again. And she starts to wonder if it's even possible to literally re-write fate. Meanwhile, the only two people who know she's time traveled are her two best friends since college, Jules, a frazzled married mom of two and pastry chef and Drew, a comfortably single computer programmer. In order to convince them she's really gone back in time, she's offers to use her wishes to help them with their own lives. But do her attempts at improving them help? Jules's marriage begins to unravel and Drew's relationship with a celebrity changes him. As Kate watches all of their lives play out on and off the internet, she begins to question everything: her obsession with perfection, with posting photos with just the right amount of filter, with crafting a status update that will generate the most likes. She realizes that her obsession with social media -of posting the status of all things online -- and all the pitfalls that come with putting your entire life on the internet, might have been what got her left her at the altar in the first place"--
