Title: Before I fallAuthor: Lauren OliverGenre/s: Chick-Lit, Young Adult, 


What if you only had 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 12, should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it turns out to be her last.

The catch: Samantha still wakes up the next morning. Living the last day of her life seven times 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.

My Thoughts

This book is so relatable and so real in every aspect. 

At some point in my life, I experienced being Juliet Sykes. I felt the pain of being bullied without any reasons at all. Night after night, the question 'what did I do to deserve this?' repeats inside your head like a horrible chant until it became a haunting lullaby that cradle you to sleep.

Also, at some point in my life, I became like Sam. After being a loser, I did everything to be at the laughing side and stay in there. I should have known that it's not right, I should have known better. But I always told myself, this is just a payback. 

This book is an eye opener to everyone, especially me. And I really am greatful to read this story. It taught me a lot about changes and what's more important in life. 

I would definitely recommend this to everyone.
