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.

    I like books. Books have stories. Books have knowledge. I like Books. I like listening to Books. Reading Books while driving is not good.

    "Read before the Movie"

    I was interested in the premise. I will watch the movie. The story is OK. The narrator is fantastic.

    Was looking for a little more.

    1st time to read a YA. Probably my last. Maybe a good read for that young adult that needs a life lesson or two.

    Get's my coveted Storm Seal of Approval

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Any additional comments?

    I listen for only an hour and a half. Thought the girl was to grow up. Just couldn't take listening anymore. Do not waste a credit.

    Story
    "OMG! Great story, but WAY too much!!!"
    Where does Before I Fall rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The most regrettable 15hrs 25mins of my life, that I can NEVER get back!!! So brutal, that I've decided to write a review....maybe I can save someone else the desire of gouging their eyes out with a dull pencil.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Before I Fall?

    The END, when I was ready to pull a Juliette myself.


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

    Sarah puts the feeling of exactly what self-centered, entitled, millennial teenagers are like into ALL of the characters. Sarah is probably the only reason I actually finished listening to the book, because really....I was ready for Sam to die on the 1st day!


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

    At my 1st realization that this book was a "live-my-last-day-over-again" type deal, I looked at how long I had left to listen (11hrs 36mins). I though..."Good GOD", I'm not sure I'm going to make it through this book. I really don't know if I can listen to anymore, repeat days, of these overindulged, spoiled, popular, basically pretty girls, whine and complain about being teenagers! It might not have been so BRUTAL, if I didn't have to hear in - microscopic detail - how a piece of dust floated by or how deep pink, the color hot pink is!!!


    Any additional comments?

    This book was the most PAINFUL iteration of Ground Hog Day EVER put into print. The narrator didn't get paid enough to read this book, because NO amt of money would have been enough to give her back the time she wasted doing the job.

    Story
    "Surprisingly Good"

    I'm above the target age for this book but I loved it. The story brought me back to high school- the author captured everything so perfectly. The dialogue, the relationships, it was so familiar to me. At first I thought the narrators voice was a little young or something, but she ended up doing a great job of the teenage girls. I think this is the type of book I'd like my daughters to read when they're old enough.
