Before I Fall
The basis for the 2017 major motion picture of the same name, Lauren Oliver's debut novel, Before I Fall, was released in 2010. The story follows 17-year-old Sam Kingston, a girl who is killed in a car accident. After recounting the vivid and horrifying moments of her death, Sam wakes up the next morning in her own bed — the same morning of the accident. For weeks, Sam is stuck in a time loop, forced to relive the last day of her life over and over again until she gets it right. With each day that passes, she uncovers surprising details about her death, reevaluates her relationships, and grows as a person.
