Before I FallBefore I Fall by Lauren Oliver

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Date read:  November 26 – 29, 2016

5 well deserved stars! BEFORE I FALL was an absolutely unexpected really good read! I was totally blown away with the way LAUREN OLIVER delivered this story which was moving, thoughtful, and interesting. It was an honest and believable portrayal of teenagers lives which was executed with a very important message.

I didn’t know what to expect when I picked this one up, the title and the cover is what actually pulled me in. This book grabs your attention slowly and then while the story progresses and your emotions are heightened it is really hard to put down.

The story was told in the voice of a teenager, Samantha (Sam) who for the most part wasn’t a personable main character but that didn’t take away from how engrossed I was with the storyline. I thought I knew how this story was going to end, but I didn’t. I could see how Samantha’s values and morals were changing everyday as the week passes.

This novel will not be easily forgotten!

It was a steady-paced, quick, and easy to follow along read. Would recommend!!
