Publisher's Summary

What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?

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. Reliving her last day during one miraculous week, she will untangle the mystery surrounding her death - and discover the true value of everything she is in danger of losing.

    Story
    "Groundhog Day meets If I Stay"

    I hate to compare this to 2 very dynamically different works of fiction but the only things that come to mind are the drama of If I Stay and the repeating events of Groundhog Day.
    This novel explores the big question of what would you do if you knew today was your last day, would you continue to do what you always do and go with the flow and play the popularity game or would you actually follow your heart and make a difference for good.
    We start the story with Samantha starting her day of Friday February 12th like normal as one of the super popular girls who criticize and make fun of others she dates a very popular guy her life seems perfect until it tragically comes to an end with a sudden car wreck after leaving a party with her friends.
    She then wakes up in her bed her alarm ringing she checks her phone and it is Friday again her day is starting over. Is it Deja Vu is her life literally repeating days.?Will she change the events of the day?

    There is a lot of good character development with all of the main characters and Samantha spends lots of time figuring out who she really is as she relives her last day 7 times.
    This is a good listen/read however it is not my favorite it is a little too teeny genre for me. I would however recommend this for teenager readers.

    "Couldn't Stop Listening"

    Before I Fall is an emotional journey from beginning to end. You know you finished a great book when you're dreaming about it at night and finish the book crying. I'd recommend it to anyone who's willing to be emotionally invested with a book at the moment.

    "Loved it!"

    I am long since a teenager, and I got this on accident. Once realizing it follows a senior girl and her clique I thought I would dislike it, but even I could relate to all that happened. It was a great story and Sarah Drew did an awesome job with the voices. I always knew who was talking.

    "What an excellent book!"

    I read this because my teenage daughter was reading it and I'm so glad she (and I) did!! The message is powerful and positive and identifies with the struggles that are faced at that age. The reader does an amazing job with the sounds and nuances of the various characters! I was hooked from the beginning to the end!

    "A must read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, especially to parents of teens so they can see what their children really face each day.


    What other book might you compare Before I Fall to and why?

    That Was Then and This is Now by SE Hinton


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

    Drew's dramatic voice make the story unforgettable!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, this book made me laugh and cry several times. It also made be think of my behavior, how I treat people, and what do I give to those around me. It also gave insight into the life of teens today.


    Any additional comments?

    This is my favorite audio book at present. I have listened to seven. The plot keeps moving and the messages make you think. There is some language and content concerns, so I would suggest 15 years and older. Again, a great book for parents of teens...I can't stress that enough.
