Book Blurb: 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.
Book Review: I was pretty surprised that I enjoyed this book. I thought it was going to be a DNF until I got to just before the middle, and after that I couldn't put it down, I stayed up in order to finish it. I think once Sam gets past the high school thing and starts thinking bigger picture and realizes once and for all her fate it sealed, she kicks in gear and it helps the story.
Lauren Oliver definitely made an incredibly accurate portrayal of high school and teenagers these days, sadly enough. There were some points in the book where I was just thinking "get on with it" I don't want to hear any more high school stuff, I was glad we didn't have to endure the same thing every single day, for moment in the beginning I though we would. I think Lauren Oliver did an excellent job with this book, definitely one for teens and adults.
