Before I Fall Summary
One day, famous high school senior Samantha Kingston has everything: the boyfriend, the clothes, the group of friends. The next day, she wakes up in a nightmare. She’s reliving that day, and it’s the worst day of her life–the day she dies.
Samantha doesn’t know why she’s stuck in this time loop, but she knows that if she doesn’t change what happens that day, she’ll be stuck reliving it forever. As she tries to solve the mystery of her own death, Samantha’s world unravels. Secrets and lies come to the surface, and Samantha discovers that everything she thought she knew about her life–and herself–was a lie.
Before I Fall is a heart-wrenching, edge-of-your-seat thriller about what it means to live–and how sometimes, in order to do that, you have to die.

In an interview, Lauren Oliver said this about writing Before I Fall: “The idea for the book came to me while I was on a plane. I was reading an article in Time magazine about Groundhog Day, and I started thinking about what would happen if someone had to relive the same day over and over again. And I was also interested in exploring the idea of what it means to be popular, and how our actions can have unexpected consequences. I thought it would be interesting to write a book about a character who is forced to confront her own mortality and to question the choices she has made in her life.”
