Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver is a heartwarming story about a girl who has everything, but gives it all up to help someone else.  Sam Kingston is one of the most popular girls in school, with three best friends and a great boyfriend.  But everything changes when Sam and her friends are coming back from a party.  In one swift moment, her car crashes into something, and she dies.  However, it is not the end.  Sam is given seven chances to relive that one day and make everything right.  At first she thinks that all she has to do is avoid the accident and then continue her life.  She later learns that she has been given these chances for a different reason, to do something she has never done before.  She must help people and make their lives better.  This is almost impossible for Sam because no matter how hard she tries, she just can’t make things right.  How will things turn out for Sam?  Read Before I Fall to find out!

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a romance with lots of action.  This book is very unpredictable, and you will never be able to guess what is coming next.  Just when you think everything will work out, it won’t.  When things look totally impossible, everything will take a turn for the better.  This is a great book that I am sure everyone will love!
