Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver


Book Summary: 

With this stunning debut novel, New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver emerged as one of today’s foremost authors of young adult fiction. Like Jay Asher’s Thirteen Reasons Why and Gayle Forman’s If I Stay, Before I Fall raises thought-provoking questions about love, death, and how one person’s life can affect so many others.

For popular high school senior Samantha Kingston, February 12—”Cupid Day”—should be one big party, a day of valentines and roses and the privileges that come with being at the top of the social pyramid. And it is…until she dies in a terrible accident that night.

However, she still wakes up the next morning. In fact, Sam 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 ever imagined.

Named to numerous state reading lists, this novel was also recognized as a Best Book of the Year by, Barnes & Noble, The Daily Beast, NPR, and Publishers Weekly. It has been optioned for film by Fox 2000 Pictures.

My review:

Samantha has the good life, the popular click in the group and rules the school. Then one bad night she gets into a bad accident then wakes up reliving the same day over and over again. Sam was like this mean girl type of person and at first you end up disliking her, but as the story progress you can only hope that Sam will learn her lessons and grow as a person. Will she be able to escape her faith or she is doomed to live the worst day ever over and over again. This book has a type of groundhog day movie feel to it. It’s a very slow start to the story by in the end you hope to enjoy it. Soon the movie will be coming out for it March 3rd. I suggest read the book for yourself before the movies. You know how they sometimes ruin books the movies do. Will leave you off with the movies trailer and Happy Reading!
