Right away I kind of disliked this book because the characters were popular girls. They’re mean, they get away with everything at school, and they’re the complete opposite of who I was when I was in high school.
This book is supposed to be about Sam’s redemption. After she dies, she repeats her last day over and over Groundhog Day style until she makes things right – kind of. I didn’t think she changed enough as a character. She makes minor amends, but I don’t think she really makes things better on her last reliving of the day.
The relationships in this book are very shallow. Even the love interest didn’t really hold my attention.
I did like the writing style and the premise of the story. I will likely check out some of Lauren Oliver’s other books.
And the audio book was read by Sarah Drew, who plays April Kepner on Grey’s Anatomy, so that was kind of fun.
