Before I Fall By Lauren Oliver | Book Review


Samantha Kingston lives a perfect life, and she has everything she wants. But the problem is that she treats everyone around her in a mean way. Once she becomes friends with a group of three popular girls, she starts acting like them just to fit in. On Friday, the 12th of February, Samantha and her friends decide to go to a party. Unfortunately, on that night at 12:30 she dies in a car accident.

After the accident, Samantha relives her last day for seven days, to unravel the mystery of her death, and discover the true meaning of life. She gets to change things and make new experiences, and understand the outcomes of her bad actions, and how they affected her friends and family.

What I like about this book is that you can notice the growth of the main character and it’s remarkable. Each day, Samantha tries to not follow her friends or imitate them. She interferes and fix her relationship with her family, especially her little sister. She used to value the wrong things that don’t matter, spend so much time with the worst kind of friends, and neglect what is right in front of her. But now she knows what she should value and treasure. This story is powerful and tragic. It really makes you rethink about how our actions with other people might affect them, even when we don’t pay attention to what we usually say or do.
