it was amazing
Read in November, 2009

My Thoughts: I have never read a book quite like this one! We meet Samantha Kingston who is the ideal girl, popular, has the "cool" friends, the "coolest" boyfriend, the perfect life. Until one day her world all comes crashing down! She gets in a car accident, hears the screeching of the tires, and wam she is back in her bed reliving the day over and over!!! This novel reminds me a little bit of the movie Groundhog Day but also has a lot of differences. This novel is very original. I like the lessons she learns throughout reliving the day over and over again. She has a chance to have fun and not worry about what will happen tomorrow. She has choices to make. She can either do the wrong thing or correct the mistakes she made. She is given her second chance over and over again. I especially liked Kent. I didn't really like her boyfriend but Kent (her guy friend) I definitely liked. I would have liked to see Kent a little bit more, but he is in chapters throughout the book. This novel is one of a kind and you should definitely read it if you get a chance.

Overall: I really loved this one. It is truly an inspiration and interesting novel. If you had the chance, one day to relive, and do anything you wanted, change the wrongs you made, what would you do? Who would you kiss? Who would you talk too? Would you change today?
