Book Review #43 (2015 Challenge), Before I Fall

The book I am reviewing is: Before I Fall (read in October

The book was in the category:  A Book that takes place in High School

Here is what Amazon Has to say about this book:

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 pyramid. And it is…until she dies in a terrible accident that night.
However, 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 more power than she ever imagined.

It was a half decent book.  I liked the story and it was well written.  It ended how it was supposed to, yet I hoped it would end differently.  True, it is a mimic of the 100 Goundhog's Day stories that are out there.  I could see this book being good for my daughter, though, who is going to be 13 soon.  I see these high school clicks developing all the time - the girls who make fun of anyone they deem below them.  How wondering if they were given a second chance would they change how they treat the people around them.  

Stars:  3 1/2
