Sophie (BlameChocolate) *on hiatus* (blamechocolate) | 94 comments It's YA I think, and like the title says, she dies seven time and each time she goes back in time to re-do her past and try to make it right, but fails and dies again and goes back again. Any ideas?

Booksdingle | 20 comments sounds like Life after Life by Kate Atkinson

If the story is set during World War 2 in Britain and Germany, then Life After Life sounds promising.

Before I Fall is a contemporary YA story where, according to the blurb, the heroine "lives the last day of her life seven times".

Gerd | 223 comments Maybe Cat Patrick's book: Revived

Upon second thought, right Oliver's book takes place over the course of a "week".

Sophie (BlameChocolate) *on hiatus* (blamechocolate) | 94 comments After going through all of the suggestions, I think it's "Before I Fall". But I can't be sure... The others don't sound like what I remember at all, though.

Thank you to everyone who pitched in so far and tried to help me find the book, you guys are awesome :)

Here's a plot summary of Before I Fall that might help - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Before_...

Should we wait until you get ahold of the book before calling this Solved? Sounds like you still have doubts.


Justanotherbiblophile | 1767 comments @Lobstergirl; OP ( @Laie ) can put this in the Possibly Solved folder, until they get a chance to look at it - if they're willing to go with the general consensus. They can move it back to the Unsolved folder at any time - preferably after they've taken a look at the book in question.

Ben (browly) | 24 comments Is it fantasy? There's Heir Apparent, where she is trapped in a fantasy video game and has to keep starting over each time she dies. What genre?

Heir Apparent by Vivian Vande Velde for Browly's suggestion.

I wouldn't mind to have it moved to the "Possibly Solved" folder, it makes sense. I can't say for sure it's Before I Fall, because I remember a different cover with a black-haired girl/character on it... Maybe it's a different edition (I checked and the only thing remotely similar is a czech cover, so it could be it).

I hadn't read this book before, I only read the description and thought it was interesting. But eventually I forgot about it until recently when it popped up in my mind again.

So yeah, please feel free to move it to the appropriate folder - I truly appreciate the continuing effort to help me find this book :)

It's definitely not a video game. I would say maybe contemporary paranormal.
