A boyfriend who everyone dreams of having, popularity, and three best friends. But one night when Samantha, the protagonist, was in a car accident she finds herself awake the "next morning" at the same date she died in.
This book is mysterious and it can sometimes be frustrating, but in the end it was one of the best books I have read. Before I Fall is thrilling and is a complete page-turner. And it kept me awake all night, not only reading but also I find myself thinking about it. And despite the frustration that comes out of it, I keep finding myself thinking about the book and waiting to get my hands on it.
I recommend this book to everyone really who likes reading YA fiction. And even if you don't read YA books you should still try it out. Before I Fall demonstrates the value of our decision and choices and how it affects other people's lives. It is very meaningful and shows how anyone can change and everyone should get a second chance. This book was beautifully written -- of course, it was written by Lauren Oliver, but that's not the only reason that I gave it five stars. It's a five star book because the themes in the books are so meaningful that it would be a shame if you never read it at all. ...more

However their personalities have a deep contrast, and so do their leagues. Margo is a seemingly fearless person, whereas Quentin not so much. And what makes things even more strained, is that Margo has a really high popularity status which you can’t say for Quentin. But one day, Margo decides to spend a night with Quentin, but the next day she vanishes. Quentin and his friends then decide to look for Margo with the help of the clues she left them.
It’s really hard to pinpoint exactly what the book represents. I feel like the book is standing for a lot of things really. And it really is quite fascinating. The book talks about how someone might not really be who you think they are. And people might mean different things to different people. The book also talks about being courageous and rebellious. And also doesn’t forget to talk about how sometimes we do things that don’t mean anything; that aren’t real. It’s interesting in all honestly. But throughout the middle, I thought the book was sort of repetitive. And although the characters were really interesting, they could be quite frustrating at times too. I was going to rate this book a three out of five. But the ending of the book changed my mind.
My favorite part of the book was the beginning and the ending of the book. It wasn’t Margo that I found interesting, it was really what she thought. I feel like it wasn’t particularly the characters or the story I liked but rather the meaning and the purpose of the whole book.
I also liked Looking for Alaska more than Paper Towns. I recommend this book to of course anyone who likes John Green. It’s also a pretty good book for YA fiction readers. However, I don’t highly recommend it, just something you should pick up if you don’t have anything else to read....more
