One day to live – Before I Fall wake-up call
The majority of people do not go about their day to day lives with the assumption that they will not live to see tomorrow, especially if they are young. We live in each day, reminisce about the past and constantly plan for our future. As awful and unfair as deaths of young people are, it still happens.
High school senior Samantha Kingston never thought that it would happen to her, until her car goes off an icy road one winter night. Given the chance to relive the last day of her life seven times, she goes through an intense emotional journey throughout the course of the novel.
