Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life? Samantha Kingston has it all—looks, popularity, the perfect boyfriend. Friday, February 12th should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it’s her last. The catch: Samantha still wakes up the next morning. In fact, she re-lives the last day of her life seven times, until she realizes that by making even the slightest changes, she may hold more power than she had ever imagined.

Before I Fall was like nothing I’ve read before. I have to admit, it took me like 9 days to read. It was still awesome though. I disliked Before I Fall because it was really repetitive which can get pretty annoying. But, I also had to realize that because of what the book is about, it had to be generally repetitive.
I liked how original the plot was. You don’t see or hear of many movies, books, or shows like that. Before I Fall made it onto the bestsellers list and it totally deserved it. This is a lovely addicting book that many have and will love.

FTC- I received this book awhile ago from Harper Teen publishers.
