Book Review: Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver


Sam and her friends rule the school and they aren't nice about it either.  They define the term mean girls.  One Friday night while driving home drunk from a party something terrible happens and Sam dies.  The weird thing is Sam wakes up the next morning and it is Friday all over again.  For seven days Sam relives her last day over and over again.  Each time with surprising differences.  Sam has to die in order to be able to really get to know herself.  Very unique plot twist with the main character dying and reliving her day over. I gave it four out of five stars.  The author has a trilogy called Delirium that is soon being made into a tv show that I look forward to reading.  I'll keep you updated.
