Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver, her debut novel, released seven years ago and is now a movie releasing in March 7th. I remember it being one of the first books I read and reviewed on my blog back in 2010. Since then it’s been a staple in my classroom library and I know will continue to be now that the movie is releasing. Is anyone else excited to see this on the big screen?!
Summary (From Goodreads):
With this stunning debut novel, New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver emerged as one of today’s foremost authors of young adult fiction. Like Jay Asher’s Thirteen Reasons Why and Gayle Forman’s If I Stay, Before I Fall raises thought-provoking questions about love, death, and how one person’s life can affect so many others.
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.
