Review: Before I fall by Lauren Oliver

Release date: march 2nd 2010
Published by:Hodder paperbacks
Number of pages:341 (UK paperback)
Series: None
Grade: A+

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—looks, popularity, the perfect boyfriend. Friday, February 12th should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it’s her last. The catch: Samantha still wakes up the next morning. In fact, she re-lives the last day of her life seven times, until she realizes that by making even the slightest changes, she may hold more power than she had ever imagined. said:
"If you only read one book this year, it should be this one"

And I totally agree. This book makes you think about life and how precious it is and that it could end, any second of any day. It was so beautiful and I never wanted it to end.

I disliked some of the characters in the beginning but started loving them towards the end and I think that's the point, to see how the main character, Sam, changes throughout the book.

You have to pick this book up, and you have to pick it up soon. I laughed, I cried, I felt alongside with the characters and I would reccomend this to anyone. Boys, girls, adults, teens, anyone.
