What if you could do it all over again?
What book are you reading this week?
I’m reading an awesome book, Before I fall, by Lauren Oliver. I discovered it at Wal-Mart one night. The summary on the back was attention-getting for me.
I didn’t buy it right away, but did purchase it on Amazon a few days later because I wanted to know what happens in the story.
I love this book so far (after reading 60%)
Click on this Amazon link to read more about it. The book is ranked in the top 5,000 best-selling books on amazon as of today. That is a fairly good rank for a book. My children's book, Building Character" is ranked about 800,000.
It’s about this high school girl named Sam who dies in a car crash. She has what I like to call “Groundhog Day Syndrome.” It is like the movie groundhog day because she repeats the same day over and over again. Except it is Feb 12th a.k.a. Cupid Day at school in this book.
But this book is so much better than groundhog day!
I’m not certain if she is fully living her life with a second chance each day or living a shadow of it in an afterlife until she passes on.
Here is a youtube trailer for the book. I regret to say this trailer doesn’t do justice for the book. The book is so much more fascinating.
She gets to live her life over each day. She has the opportunity to do it different. What would you do if you could do it all over again?
I don't know the ending of this book yet because I still have about 40% more to read. This may be a good thing so I won't give any book-spoilers in this blog. I fully recommend this book. I'm going to give my copy to my mother after I read it.
