Goodreads Summary:

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 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.


I got this book in exchange for an honest opinion. Thank you, Hodder Books!

Before I Fall is one of those books that you have to set aside after you finish it. It makes you think about the important things in life and how everything is connected. It’ll have you clinging to the book at the end. There’s this spark of hope, even though you already know how it’s going to end.

I must say that I quite loved this book, but also hated it, because it makes you think. It’s so well thought out and incredibly inspirational.
Before I Fall is cruel and sad and moving and hopeful. It makes you feel so many things at once and sometimes I wasn’t even sure what I was feeling.

Sam is a Mean Girl. A bitch. I would have avoided her like the plague if she went to high school with me. This is her story to get a second chance. To right her wrongs. She relives the day she dies over and over again and eventually finds out that this is her chance to do some good for people around her.

Before I Fall is moving, impressive and affective.
