Before I Fall, by Lauren Oliver Summary: After she dies in a car crash, teenaged Samantha relives the day of her death over and over again until, on the seventh day, she finally discovers a way to save herself. Harper Find it at WCPL Advertisements Related 2 Comments This book was brilliant. It starts off with a ridiculously annoying character who, after repeating the same day 7 times I think, she completely changes. The author did a fabulous job showing how little things can change a big thing. I really really like this book. I agree that the main character starts out as ridiculously annoying, but I don’t think she became much more likable by the end, which frustrated me while reading. I could see what the book was trying to do, and I liked it, but I’m not convinced it succeeded. The main character acted like she regretted her past self, which was all well and good, but I got the impression that the regret itself was shallow.
