BEFORE I FALL
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Young Adult
Astounding, surprising and absolutely haunting! This debut makes Oliver an author to watch, even if you aren't a YA fan. The intricate layers are a treat, as each new character is revealed to have as much depth as the heroine.
When popular Samantha Kingston dies in a drunken-driving accident, that should be the end of things. But Samantha wakes up the next morning to relive the day again. And again. And again. Each new day Samantha tries to change her future, and as she explores the different possibilities of her final day, the people involved become different. Samantha realizes her life is not at all what she thought, but maybe it can be something different. (HARPERCOLLINS, Mar., 480 pp., $17.99, ISBN: 9780061726804, HC, 14 and Up)
