The History Major: A Novella by Michael Phillip Cash

After a fight with her boyfriend and a night of way too much drinking, Amanda awakens to what seems like the start of a bad hangover. Things take an unusual turn when she discovers her college roommate has been replaced by a stranger claiming to be her roommate. Worse, Amanda's college schedule is not the same. She's now enrolled in history, a class she despises. That's only the start of the weirdness that follows and makes Amanda question what is going on.

The History Major is one of those books that I liked but didn't love. It flowed swiftly from scene to scene, but it never fully captured my attention. After a while, I started to wonder if it is because I, like Amanda, cannot stand history class.

Michael Phillip Cash's novella is short and carries a strong message. It's got touches of history, philosophy, and coming of age all rolled into one.
