Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

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—looks, popularity, the perfect boyfriend. Friday, February 12th should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it’s her last. The catch: Samantha still wakes up the next morning. In fact, she re-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 had ever imagined.

I loved the story of this book. I though it was absolutely fabulous, and very well done. I didn't think that Samantha replaying her last day 7 times was repeating to much at all. Everyday she felt a different emotion and had different issues to deal with and I though the whole book flowed really well. Sam, as a character, left a bad taste in my mouth in the beginning. I was one of those people that were constantly picked on by the popular crowd and reading that from a different angle didn't make it any easier. Though towards the end she grew on me, and I loved the ending. I though it was very fitting for the book.
