A Touching Novel

First Thoughts:

What does one say about a book that has you thinking about your own life?! Though this book never actually made me down right cry it still touched me in a way that few books can ever do. I got so wrapped up in Sam's life and what she was feeling that I felt I myself was questioning my actions in life. This book is truly a beautiful craft in itself and will forever more be in my mind.


Sam has it perfect, she's popular and has the hottest boyfriend in school. But when she goes to a party and her friends get drunk and on their way home get into an accident, Sam's life changes forever. She wakes up the next day to find that it's actually yesterday Friday February 12th, the night she thought she died. Sam keeps having to relive the day she dies over and over and she can't understand why. But along the way she discovers secrets that are more deadly than the tree that they hit. Soon Sam is not only on a mission to save herself but to save someone she thought was pyscho.

Throughout the 7 days she relives this day she goes through all the stages of grief, she's mad, sad, denies that she's dead and then acceptance. But Sam's acceptance is chilling, she gives up, she figures 'what's the point? I'm already dead' it in my eyes is very accurate because we've all gone through a time where life get's rocky and we question not only ourself but the people around us.

Last thoughts:

The imagery in this book was amazing, all the imagery of butterflies and how she is feeling each day was beyond amazing. I will never forget this book, the emotions and thoughts it brought to me will be ingrained in my mind for the rest of my life and beyond. I wish to recommend this to everyone. I think everyone needs a wake-up call in their life, this was mine, perhaps it will be yours too.
