Usually, when I read a book, I can figure out the ending pretty quickly. It's an irritating skill. But, not this time.
Before I Fall begins with Sam, the main character, explaining about how she died with her friends on a Friday night. Then restarts the next chapter by explaining the day leading up to when she died. But, this book is sort of long, so I knew there had to be more to the story.
Sam is having a Groundhog's Day moment (it's an old movie from the 90s). She keeps reliving the last day of her life, and dying at the end of it. Then she wakes up again and lives the day again. At first, she has fun with it. She messes with people, says mean things she's always wanted to say but didn't have the guts to say. Then, she realizes she has a mission. That's where the real story kicks in.
If you've read If I Stay, this is definitely another book you will enjoy.
I'm an avid reader. One thing I've learned in my many years on this Earth is that no matter what is happening in your life, you can always benefit from temporarily escaping life in order to become absorbed in a make believe story.
