Samantha and her friends are in a car accident, killing her and sending her into a week of reliving one day. This book will make you think about how you treat others and how your actions affect others in ways you can’t even imagine. Each time she relives the day she makes changes, sometimes for the better, sometimes creating horrible outcomes. I would recommend this book for high school only. It contains sex scenes/alchohol use and some pretty mean girls! It was well written and her ultimate last day is uplifting and worth the read.

Editor’s Bonus Note:
Lauren Oliver’s second novel, Delirium, was just released this week. It appears to have that futuristic dystopian doomed romance flavor which a lot of the kids are liking these days. Check it out for your high schools.
