Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Before I Fall
Pages: 470
Points 18/18

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.

This book was quite spectacular actually. When Tye asked me to read it and I aked her what it was about I thought that it sounded dumb and that nobody could do that without getting cheesy or repetitive. But boy was I wrong.

The main character in this book is Samantha Kingston, and pardon my french but in the beginning of the book she kind of is a bitch. But by the end of the book she has a change of heart and actually does the right thing. Her friends are Elody, Ally and Lindsay. They're all pretty cool but they definately have their problems. They're the stuck up mean girls of high school. Samantha's boyfriend Rob was a jerk who didn't understand anything. It was kinda great. Kent was the wierd kid that liked Samantha, they had been friends forever. (He was my favorite character. <3)

The plot of this book was that Samantha died and kept waking up on the day she died, given seven chances to relive her last day and make everything right again. Again, I thought that nobody could pull off this plot but Lauren Oliver did it wonderfully.

This book took me less than a day to read due to the fact that it was just so amazing I couldn't put it down. I recommend this book greatly. It's a must read!!!
