Barrett Bloom is hoping college will be a fresh start after a messy high school experience. But when school begins on September 21st, everything goes wrong. She’s humiliated by the know-it-all in her physics class, she botches her interview for the college paper, and at a party that night, she accidentally sets a frat on fire. She panics and flees, and when she realizes her roommate locked her out of their dorm, she falls asleep in the common room.
The next morning, Barrett’s perplexed to find herself back in her dorm room bed, no longer smelling of ashes and crushed dreams. It’s September 21st. Again. And after a confrontation with Miles, the guy from Physics 101, she learns she’s not alone—he’s been trapped for months.
When her attempts to fix her timeline fail, she agrees to work with Miles to find a way out. Soon they’re exploring the mysterious underbelly of the university and going on wild, romantic adventures. As they start falling for each other, they face the universe’s biggest unanswered question yet: what happens to their relationship if they finally make it to tomorrow?

See You Yesterday is a YA contemporary romance, with some sci-fi by Rachel Lynn Solomon. She is an auto-buy author for me now, and I just adore her books. If you like slow-burn, enemies to lovers, and time loops set on a college campus, I highly recommend you check this one out!
Barrett Bloom is really hoping that her college experience can be do over after a horrible high school experience. But when school begins for her on September 21, everything goes terribly wrong. She’s humiliated by a guy in her physics class, she blows her interview with the college paper, and at a frat party she sets a frat house on fire. She panics after the fire and flees the scene. When she gets to her dorm, her roommate has locked her out of the room and she falls asleep in the common room.
She wakes up the next morning in her dorm room bed as though nothing has happened, and she discovers that it is September 21st all over again. After a confrontation with Miles, the student from her physics class, she discovers that she is not alone in this, and that he has been trapped for months.
Barrett attempts to fix her timeline, and when all of her attempts fail, she agrees to work with Miles to escape the time loop. Soon they are exploring the university and going on crazy adventures together. They begin falling for each other, and wonder what will happen when they finally get back to tomorrow?
I really enjoyed Barrett. She is a very passionate character, and has such a sense of adventure about her and a wonderful sense of humor. She also has such a sweet and sensitive side to her as well. Miles is such a cinnamon roll! He’s shy, sweet, and incredibly smart and also has a great sense of humor. I absolutely loved the banter between these two characters! I loved how they decided to work together to see if they can get themselves out of the time loop. As I was watching their relationship develop, I kept wondering if they would be able to discover a way out, or if they would be trapped forever on September 21st?
This book is releasing on Tuesday, and I recommend that you pick it up and/or add it your TBR. Perfect for Rachel Solomon fans, or any fans of YA romance!
