Sam Kingston is killed in a car crash, but instead of seeing a tunnel of light, she wakes up in her own bed, on the morning of the same day. Forced to live through the same events, she struggles to alter the outcome, but wakes up again on the day of the crash. What follows is the story of a girl who comes of age in a matter of days.

This is a book where, when you've finished, you think " did i really just read that??!" because it is such a unbelievably reflective and down-to-earth book it seems like its not possible. I was gripped from the very start and wanted to go on reading, even once it finished! Its written with style, strength and understanding. Not a gentle read- it's full on and in-your-face with realism but very enjoyable to read. One of the books i'm noting down to read again in ten years time! Well done to the author, Lauren Oliver- you just altered my perspective on life! Read this book, adults and teens, life-changing!
