I hated this book and loved it It’s cruel and frustrating unfair and yet it’s also sad and hopeful and honest and authentic I’m not sure how everyone else feels about their High School experience but I despised mine You couldn’t pay me to go back However this story was so vivid that I felt as though I could smell the grease from the cafeteria feel the rough tile on the bathroom floor and the chill of that cold fateful night I even cringed at the hurt that all these characters so casually inflicted upon one another so I guess I went back after all Sam is not a nice girl In fact she is a bit of a bitch Scratch that she is a bitch She doesn’t set out to maliciously attack anyone but she doesn’t stand against it either She won’t instigate the chant of “psycho” at the school outcast but she shouts it just as loudly as her group of popular she witches Worse she actually believes that others should just accept the way they are mercilessly attacked because she was once mocked in the third grade for blushing as if blushing were the euivalent to being called a whore who bared the goods for grass when the person at the butt of that malicious lie doesn’t smoke or has even been kissed Naturally when Samantha meets an unfortunate end after forcing us to spend a day in her insipid world I hardly felt bad for her How sad is that A teen girl dies tragically and I thought she got what she deserved Thus is the beauty of this book Told in seven chapters each representing the same day Before I Fall tells the story of a typically popular girl who gets six days to right some wrongs Make no mistake I hardly think one day is sufficient to mend the hurt that these girls created It in no way rectifies the things that Samantha has done but it’s a start in the right direction Rather I felt this story allowed readers to realize that there is depth to us all even the bitches and we all have thoughts that should shame us The character development of all the characters was astounding and the character growth drastic though it may be was entirely believable

I am not going for these evil •sshole girls on hereI cringed and raged through most of the book I didn't give a rat's •ss about these evil girls The worse was Lindsay to me The only reason I have the book 2 stars is because Sam redeemed herself after all of the days she relived She went back and did all of the right things Whether it was all a dream or something I don't know but she did good in the end The very end was bittersweet in it's own way But going through the books and hearing all of the things the girls did to other people because they were bullies was just sick I hate bullies so freaking much and the book has to blow my mind in order for me to love a book with them in it This one just didn't I'm not going to go on and on about it I'm so glad that sooooooooooooo many of my friends loved the book with the exception of a few I'm not scared if that's what you're wondering The moment of death is full of sound and warmth and light so much light it fills me up absorbs me a tunnel of light shooting away arcing up and up and up and if singing were a feeling it would be this this light this lifting like laughing The rest you have to find out for yourself MY BLOG Melissa Martin's Reading List

review Before I Fall Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ [Read] ➼ Before I Fall ➹ Lauren Oliver – For popular high school senior Samantha Kingston February 12—Cupid Day—should be one big party a day of valentines and roses and the privileges that come with being at the top of the social pyrami For popEs in a terrible accident that nightHowever she still wakes up the next morning In fact Sam lives the last day of her life seven times until she realizes that by making even the slightest changes she may hold power than she ever imagined B. Before I get to the review I just wanted to let everyone know I don't typically write reviews for books I love The reason being I'm not good at writing worth while and positive reviews as opposed to my uncanny ability to write crazy rants about books I totally loathe Or rather I know I'm not up to the task writing a review worthy of a book so beautiful so elouently written I can't stop thinking about it long after I've finished it I know there is nothing I could say that could not be better said by the book itself or even just a review written by someone who is smarter than me has a way with words That said here I am attempting to write a review worthy of Before I Fall If I fail which is than likely please do not hold it against the book it isn't the book's fault I'm not a talented writerSo without further ado Popular girl Samantha Kingston thinks a lot about the what she's done throughout her seventeen years of life as she relives her last day over and over again In all Samantha is given seven chances to figure out what went wrong what chain of events brought about her death Seven opportunities to change and make things right Seven days to save herself At first glance Samantha Sam doesn't come across as anything special Sure she's popular but other than her superior social standing she's basically your average teenager Her biggest concern is her virginity which she will be losing to her boyfriend that night she's freaked out but feels it's time to get it over with Other than that she's wondering how many roses she'll have by the end of Cupid Day and if she looks okay considering she didn't get to shower that morningHowever it doesn't take long before we're given a better accurate picture of the type of person Samantha Kingston truly is Over the course of the day she cheats on a test flirts shamelessly with her calculus teacher cuts class gets pretty drunk and treats her classmates like garbage Sam and her friends are especially cruel to one girl in particular All in all it's an average school day for Samantha Kingston Clearly I didn't like Samantha Kingston at the beginning of this novel She's a horrible self absorbed teenager What's worse is the fact that she thinks so highly of herself and her friends saying I'm not going to lie though It's nice that everything's easy for us It's a good feeling knowing you can basically do whatever you want and there won't be any conseuencesAnd then goes on to sayIf high school were a game of poker Lindsey Ally Elody and I would be holding 80 percent of the cardsAfter Sam finishes recounting her last day in which she clearly does not come out looking good she tells us about how she died then says Before you start pointing fingers let me ask you is what I did really so bad So bad I deserved to die So bad I deserved to die like that Is what I did really so much worse than what anybody else does Is it really so much worse than what you do Think about itLike everyone else I went to high school with girls like Samantha Kingston and her friends And like most everyone else I haaaaated those girls So Much Who wants to read a story about a bunch of horrible teenagers No one But you know what Turns out when I was seventeen I was not that much better than Samantha Kingston Sure I wasn't a total A hole but the truth is I gossiped lied cheated cut class the works And I treated a lot of people badly peers and adults But I haven't really spent too much time thinking about the person I was in high school Not until Sam asks us the readers if what she did is so much worse than what we do That's why I kept reading As Sam relives February 12 we see her grow and change At first her attempts at being a better person are so half hearted or ill concieved you wonder if she's actually trying And yeah as the reader I got frustrated with Sam I wanted to see her change right away and she didn't Then I remembered she's a spoiled teenager that hasn't been made to work for anything in her life Remember it was Sam herself who admitted It's nice that everything's easy for us It's a good feeling knowing you can basically do whatever you want and there won't be any conseuencesThat's Sam's mentality at the beginning of this story her reality so of course she has no clue how to truly change to be the better personHowever not many February 12ths pass when a horrifying turn of events forces Sam to acknowledge the ugly truth Sam takes a good look at herself at her friends and what she sees drives her to an all time low when Sam hits bottom she really hits bottom Sam needs that low point the chance to spiral out of control even if it's just for one day because it is only after she's humbled we see her make any significant changes She starts to look at all she has or rather had and be grateful for it She looks at her family in a whole new light and realizes just how much she truly loves them She looks at her little sister specifically a sweet little seven year old who is proud of who she is and realizes she admires her little sister because she embraces the things that make her different from all her peers After Sam's low point her thoughts her ideas become downright beautifulamazing There were many times I stopped to reread passages and even consider them for a bit ExampleMaybe you can afford to wait Maybe for you there's a tomorrow Maybe for you there's one thousand tomorrows or three thousand or ten so much time you can bathe in it roll around in it let it slide like coins through your fingers So much time you can waste it But for some of us there's only today And the truth is you never really knowIt's at this point that my feelings from this book went from like to loveAnd no Sam still doesn't get things right away She still struggles but the important part is she's really trying really working She learns from her mistakes and makes corrections Sam realizes despite her belief that she can't be fixed it's never too late to change Some of Sam's changes don't come about until the 11th hour but they do come And yes I love how this book ends I know there are many people who simply didn't like this book because of how it ends and for the life of me I cannot understand why Any other ending would have been a complete cop out think about it Plus view spoilerI happen to like ambiguous endings because they give me the opportunity to think about what I just read I can draw my own conclusions I'm not going to say anything about the ending I don't want to spoil it for anyone hide spoiler
