9780061726804: Before I Fall

They say 'live every day as if it's your last' - but you never actually think it's going to be. At least I didn't.

The thing is, you don't get to know when it happens. You don't remember to tell your family that you love them or - in my case - remember to say goodbye to them at all.

But what if, like me, you could live your last day over and over again? Could you make it perfect? If your whole life flashed before your eyes, would you have no regrets? Or are there some things you'd want to change...?

Review:

Hugely moving and gorgeously written . . . an extremely clever and well-written novel that is ultimately uplifting. ( Heat)

A very sophisticated novel . . . Oliver handles her characters with an impressive lightness of touch and writes evocatively about youth . . . a clever, funny, insightful and utterly addictive novel ( Daily Mail)

'Beautifully written, compelling and poignant, a truly memorable read' ***** ( Closer)

A book to fall in love with ( Bella)

Heartbreakingly good . . . Up there with Alice Sebold's The Lovely Bones, it'll make you want to hold close the ones you love and never let them go. Impossible to forget. ( News of the World)

A thought-provoking and compelling story that is brave and insightful for a new author ( Sun)

This book will take your breath away ( She)

A beautifully written and outrageously weepy tale. ( Daily Mirror)

Moving and thought-provoking ( Woman)

Tender, funny and raw ( Marie Claire)

A pitch-perfect Groundhog Day/ Lovely Bones hybrid ( guardian.co.uk)

Gossip Girl meets Groundhog Day ( Grazia)

Poignant . . . This tale of second chances will have you clinging on to your Kleenex ( Now)

This is very special . . . It's full of 'what ifs' and raw emotion ( Sarah Broadhurst, The Bookseller)

Take the concept of Groundhog Day, add stunning prose and layers of emotional development, and the result is a book to fall in love with over and over again ( Daily Record)

Beautifully written ( Daily Record)

BEFORE I FALL is amazing, fantastic, a groundbreaking debut. ( www.wondrousreads.com)

'BEFORE I FALL is beautifully written; brave, sincere and very addictive. It captures the essence of high-school brilliantly, and will have you laughing, crying and philosophising. I wholeheartedly recommend BEFORE I FALL. The best book I've read in the last year.' ( www.novelicious.com)

A startling piece of writing that is utterly believable and beautifully told... If you only read one book this year, it should be this one. ( www.thebookbag.co.uk)

Brilliantly written, gritty, deep and compassionate. I couldn't give it a higher recommendation! ( Guardian)

From the Publisher:

'Although I'm not the target reader I found myself engrossed and moved by this marvellous book' --Jamie Hodder-Williams

'This beautiful story had me gripped right from the first page – full of both tragic and touching 'what-if's', it takes you right back to the intense and often cruel teen-age experiences at high school. Heartbreaking in its honesty, it's a novel that really makes you think and it stayed with me long after I finished reading it' --Rebecca Cooney, International Sales & Marketing Manager

'I could feel the shivers down my spine from the first chapter, and I couldn’t put it down. A really powerful read' --Auriol Bishop, Creative Director

'A truly absorbing read. The writing is alive and powerful, and carried me along non-stop.' --Swati Gamble, Hodder Editorial

'I loved this engaging, compelling, heartbreaking novel, and can't see how any reader could fail to be won over by Sam as she relives her last day again and again and again.   I didn't want Before I Fall to end.' --Carolyn Mays, Director of Fiction
