What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?
Samantha Kingston has it all: the world’s most crush-worthy boyfriend, three amazing best friends, and first pick of everything at Thomas Jefferson High—from the best table in the cafeteria to the choicest parking spot. Friday, February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life.
Instead, it turns out to be her last. Then she gets a second chance. Seven chances, in fact. Reliving her last day during one miraculous week, she will untangle the mystery surrounding her death—and discover the true value of everything she is in danger of losing.
I found myself both loving and hating this book. I hated the first half but loved the second half. The first half showcased Sam’s life as a popular mean girl. Her life revolved around sex, drugs and alcohol, and was just annoying to read.
The second half was beautiful. As Sam realizedwhat her choices and chances were, and how they affected others, the story became much more enticing. The more she repeated her day, the better a person she became. It was enlightening and heart-warming to watch this transformation.
I also loved the scenes with Kent. They were so romantic and sweet.
Overall, if I read just the second half of the book, I’d love it much more. But you can’t get there without reading the first half. In a way, the first makes the second even more amazing than it was by sheer comparison.
