Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Description from publisher-

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: the world's most crush-worthy boyfriend, three amazing best friends, and first pick of everything at Thomas Jefferson High—from the best table in the cafeteria to the choicest parking spot. Friday, February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life.

Instead, it turns out to be her last.

Then she gets a second chance. Seven chances, in fact. Reliving her last day during one miraculous week, she will untangle the mystery surrounding her death—and discover the true value of everything she is in danger of losing.

My Review-

I thought that this book was amazing from cover to cover! It was an amazing story, with well-described characters, settings, and plot. I enjoyed it very much.

Samantha Kingston is very popular. She loves this until she gets some perspective, while reliving her last day, February 12th over 7 times. There are very different endings to each day, but on the 7th, has Sam done everything to save herself? Lindsay Edgecombe is Sam's obnoxious, but sweet best friend. But when Lindsay's secrets are revealed, is she really that powerful and popular anymore?

I liked the main idea of this book: don't take life for granted. Look at Sam, she had it all, but could lose it because her best friend was driving drunk. Its a good life lesson that I will definitely remember.

You should definitely add this to your To Be Read list, because it is a great book that I'm sure you will enjoy. Happy Reading!
