Before I fall by Lauren Oliver book review

Before I Fall - Lauren Oliver

Goodreads summary:


For popular high school senior Samantha Kingston, February 12—"Cupid Day"—should be one big party, a day of valentines and roses and the privileges that come with being at the top of the social pyramid. And it is…until she dies in a terrible accident that night.

However, she still wakes up the next morning. In fact, Sam 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 ever imagined.





This is the first book I have read by Lauren Oliver so I would not compare this one to her other works. But I really liked this book! The novel was written beautifully and taught me so much. It taught me that every little thing you do or say could have a huge impact on other people that might not be that big of a deal to you, but to them it could be the reason why they wanna give up on life. The book talked about so many things such as grief, loss, and most importantly death. I like how even though the day was repetitive, Lauren Oliver skillfully manipulated each day and was able to add more interesting twist to it and to not make it boring and tiring. It's very different from the YA books I've read. After you are finished with it, the only thing you can do is to lay down and think about it.
