Book Review: Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Title: Before I Fall
Author: Lauren Oliver
Genre: YA
Subject: Death, Relationships
Publisher: Harper Collins
Release date: October 2011
Length: 470 pages
I got this book: Borrowed it from the library

From Goodreads:
"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."

Personal opinion:
I really liked the concept of this book. It kind of reminded me of that old movie Groundhog Day. I did enjoy one of Lauren's books before so I thought I would give it a go. In the beginning I really disliked Samantha. She was the typical spoiled teenager, as shallow as they come. But as the story progresses she is starting the change and I really grew to like her. I loved the precious moments she spend with her little sister somewhere in the middle of the book. Lauren Oliver did a really good job with this book. She managed to write about the same day seven times without any of it being the same.
