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.

Where does Before I Fall rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This was a fantastic listen. Before I Fall was one of the best audiobooks I have listened to.

Who was your favorite character and why?

All of the characters are written with empathy, so I liked them all despite their faults.

What does Sarah Drew bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

This story lends itself well to the audio form, and Sarah Drew reads the story very well. Her teenager voices are very accurate. If you find teenagers to be very annoying, you might find her voices too good!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

A girl who believes trust can be misplaced, promises are made to be broken, and loyalty is an illusion. A boy who believes truth is relative, lies can mask unbearable pain, and guilt is eternal. Will what they find in each other validate their conclusions, or disprove them all?

What made the experience of listening to Easy the most enjoyable?

The narrator was very good. Her voice didn't distract from the story. In fact, she was so good that I almost didn't notice her at all- that is actually a very high compliment.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Easy?

Well, this is definitely on the more "mature" end of the YA spectrum. Those mature moments were particularly memorable.

Any additional comments?

If you enjoy YA romance novels that you can gobble up in one sitting, then you will probably love this book.
