Goodreads Summary: 

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: the world's most crush-worthy boyfriend, three amazing best friends, and first pick of everything at Thomas Jefferson High—from the best table in the cafeteria to the choicest parking spot. Friday, February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life.
Instead, it turns out to be her last.
Then she gets a second chance. Seven chances, in fact. Reliving her last day 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.

DeLibrarie (Delilah) Review: 
Sam Kingston... 
I hated her, I admired her, I wanted to pour vodka on her head and throw her into a bookcase, I laughed with her, I laughed AT her, I wanted to give her a high-five, I thought she was horrible, I thought she was funny, I thought she was smart... 

In the end... I loved Sam Kingston... 

Lauren Oliver created such real characters... characters that you can't quite figure out right away, and characters that you think you know and then they surprise you. Before I Fall was more than a wonderful read, it was like reading someones journal... a strange sort of supernatural death journal... but a journal none-the-less. I loved every minute of it... even when I hated it. 

Go read it now!
