BEFORE I FALL


By Lauren Oliver
2010
470 pages
From Inside Cover:
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 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 Thoughts:
Where do I start?
This book was amazing. Lauren Oliver takes a girl who really isn't even likable at the start of the book and made me love her. I was really worried that a story being told seven times would get old really fast-IT DOES NOT! Each day is new and different and sometimes left me shocked. This book is an emotional roller coaster. It made me angry, amused, disgusted, joyous and sad.
Wow! What a ride!
It's hard to talk about the plot without giving anything major away. This girl gets seven chances to right a wrong-will she?
I do want to say that this book made me hungry to get anything else that Lauren Oliver has written in my hands ASAP. She's that good people! I'm trying really hard not to gush-but this is me gushing. Seriously, get your hands on a copy.
This book is available at the Salmon Public Library for check out. It does contain language, sexual content and drinking situations.

  1. I loved this book too. I am glad you enjoyed it. I am looking forward to reading Delirium next year. Before I Fall really does make you feel a variety of emotions while you read. Good review!
