Samantha Kingston has it all: the world’s most crush-worthy boyfriend, three amazing best friends, and first pick of everything at Thomas Jefferson High—from the best table in the cafeteria to the choicest parking spot. Friday, February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life.
Instead, it turns out to be her last. Then she gets a second chance. Seven chances, in fact. Reliving her last day during one miraculous week, she will untangle the mystery surrounding her death—and discover the true value of everything she is in danger of losing.
A book with death story inside always attract me. Let say because of its mystery or all the speculation about it. Besides most of them are tearful. I do believe this book also do the same.
I saw this book in many book blog. Some of the bloggers put it into their top ten book 2010 or something like that
Look at what I found from Goodreads. YALSA Best Fiction Nominee for Young Adults (2010), RT Reviewers’ Choice Award Nominee for Best Young Adult Paranormal/Fantasy Novel (2010), Publishers Weekly’s Best Children’s Books of the Year for Fiction (2010). Those are literary awards for this book. In Amazon, I saw the logo “Best Books of 2010”.
I do not need to know more book awards to read this book. 🙂
“Maybe you can afford to wait. Maybe for you there’s a tomorrow. Maybe for you there’s one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or ten, so much time you can bathe in it, roll around it, let it slide like coins through you fingers. So much time you can waste it. But for some of us there’s only today. And the truth is, you never really know.”
