Before I Fall
Heads up: this book does contain references to teenage sex, drug & alcohol use, and suicide, as well as some crude language
After reading “Delirium,” I picked up this other Lauren Oliver book expecting something similar, and was both happy and disappointed that they really weren’t a whole lot alike. I was really intrigued by the premise: the main character, Sam, re-lives the last day of her life over and over, trying to somehow break the cycle and “get it right” — undo wrongs she has done as she comes to recognize how the people and events in her life are all intertwined. Seeing her become a better person by living this one day over and over was predictable, but still somewhat satisfying.
