# 7 - Before I Fall
I've just finished reading Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. I had just gotten it in the mail two days ago because I signed up for Barnes and Nobles' First Look for Teenreads.
About and Thoughts On Book:
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.
It's about a girl named Samantha Kingston. She's popular, pretty, and has a hot boyfriend. She has everything, but she dies on her school's Cupid Day. A day that shows how popular you are by how many roses you get. She relives this day seven times, till she learns that she has to change things that happened before. I have never not liked a character more than at the beginning of this book. By the end, she changes so much that she becomes one of my favorite characters. I couldn't stop reading, except when I had to. The book doesn't come out till March 2nd. I recommend everyone read it. It's one of the best books I've ever read, and I am so glad I did.
