Once I picked up this J-14 Book Club pick, I couldn't put it down!
Before I Fall is about the popular Samantha Kingston, who seemingly has the ideal life: the perfect boyfriend, best friends, and the status of a queen bee. On Friday, February 12, Sam starts her day like any other - but after a tragic car accident, it ends up being her last. When she gets seven chances to re-live her last day, she is forced to re-consider what is truly important in life and do what is right.

As she realizes that everything she once valued, like popularity even at another person's expense, really isn't worth much in the grand scheme of things, she seeks to right the wrongs she's committed in the past.
Though at first Sam is completely oblivious to how every action and every word impacts the people around her, the story is so moving because you witness her transformation. She turns from a snobbish, mean girl who doesn't care for anyone except herself to a genuine heroine who finally understands, and ultimately defines, selflessness.
Before I Fall layers so many different emotions and allows you to travel with Sam on her journey to a beautiful self-awakening. You won't be satisfied until you've turned the last page!
