Book Description:

What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?

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.

reviews plate copyAfter months of anxious waiting I was very distraught to have struggled with this book as much as I did. I loved the storyline; a young girl with a sudden death relives her last day seven times to learn the true value of life. I am not a girly girl type, and I feel that this book was aimed more for a character of that nature. I believe that this book has rose about for the younger generation, but I am unable to truly give a awesome review. Reading the preface I was excited, but once I begun the story and meeting characters I was turned off early on. Look for this book to be a future Second Chance giveaway at the Book Whisperer, because I would love for someone else to be able to give this book better credit than I was able to.

I am waiting for this book to come out in Holland, so that I can read it. There are so many people that have reviewed the book and where very positive about it, that I truly can't wait to read it for myself. Sorry you didn't enjoyed the book much. But thank you for your honest opinion about the book.
