Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Have you ever read a book where you know how it's suppose to end, yet you still hope it will end differently?
BEFORE I FALL is about the night Samantha Kingston died and then has relives her last day six more times. She is a pretty, popular girl who seems to have it all. But as it is with a lot of popular people, she's maybe not aware of the fact that she's not the nicest to those who are lower on the social scale.
As she relives each day, she learns a bit more about her friends, her schoolmates and herself. She struggles to come to terms with her death, with figuring out how to make things right and to say good-bye in the best way that she can.
I kept hoping that each day Sam relived was going to really make a difference that stuck with those around her, but every morning the day before was wiped out–except for her death. And I kept hoping that she would figure out a way to beat death, even though I knew from the beginning that she was already dead.
I guess you could say the book shows you what it means to hope.
