note: I really wanted to read this book. It had been on my TBR pile for a long long time, but I had never started this. And when I finally did I did not have enough time. But Finally, here it is; My review :D *epicfailure*
Every day can be your last. Samantha 'Sam' Kingston lives her last day without knowing it is her last. She dies. But there is something special about her death. It appears that her 'mission' on earth has not been finished. She gets to relive her last day for one weer. During this week she figures out why she died. And tries to save lives, including her own. That's how she can change the way she behaves, everyday, and no-one remembers it the next. She tries to save her own life, but will she manage...?
O.M.G. here is one of the things I tweeted while reading:
"Is it possible to be made laughing, crying, thinking, and about every emotion-ing by a book, before you've read the ending? IT IS O.o"
That's how I experienced this book. This is one of the best Debut novels I have ever read. I don't know how people cannot be touched by this book.
When I started reading the book, after the first chapter I hated it! I did hate it because of the main character, Sam. I did not like her at all. I almost put down the book. But I am so lucky I didn't! Then I started reading chapter 2, and it made no sense at all. but then I figured it out. She got to relive her last day of life. And that made me immediately think: groundhog day. Do you know that movie? It is about a guy that wakes up on the same day all the time. So that's why this book was for me groundhog day vs. High school teen drama.
Did I envy Sam? First chapter: Not at all. Last chapter: Hellyeah. She transformed into this girl full of confident, accepting life, and living her life like she is the only one thinking. I like her in that chapter. This book describes how to go form bitch to someone who's loved. And that's exactely why I love this book.
Then you have the ending. And I was surprised! A lot!!
