Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

My Rating: 5 stars

Samantha Kingston has seven days to relieve the day of her death. What ended up being the last day of her life was supposed to be the best day ever. She had it all. The friends. The boyfriend. The popularity. But the car accident changed her life – literally. After a while, Sam takes advantage of the seven days she has left. She does things she never did before; talks to people she’s never even took a second glance at. But in the end, Sam realized that she wasn’t granted these seven days to save her life, but to save someone else’s.
I loved this book. There is no other way to say it. I love it. This book has so many different messages that you have to uncover. My favorite was: “Don’t live life with your eyes closed”. At least that’s what I got out of it, and I think that’s the best thing you can say to anyone. This book is a must-read!
So, have any of you read this book? What did you think of it? Are there any other hidden messages that you picked up on? Comment!
