Book Talk

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Samantha Kingston is given a strange opportunity after she is involved in a car accident that will eventually kill her.  She gets to relive the day she dies several times.  At first she tries to change events so that her death is avoided.  Then she understands that her chance isn't about saving herself, she is going to die, but it is about helping other people live their lives happily.  Really entertaining story.  Samantha is so evil at the beginning that I found it hard to believe I was hoping she would survive at the end.  Very dynamic character.
