This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
For popular high school senior Samantha Kingston, February 12—”Cupid Day”—should be one big party, a day of valentines and roses and the privileges that come with being at the top of the social pyramid. And it is…until she dies in a terrible accident that night.
However, she still wakes up the next morning. In fact, Sam lives the last day of her life seven times, until she realizes that by making even the slightest changes, she may hold more power than she ever imagined.
This is the first time I read a book of this length. In addition, after reading it, I wouldn’t mind another hundred or so pages. It was an interesting type of story. I liked the sci-fi aspect of her reliving the same day repeatedly like in the movie Groundhog Day.
I liked the personal development of the main character thought out the book. It was nice to see that she actually changed rather than staying a spoiled brat. I like the fact that the writing wasn’t to explanatory like so many other books I’ve come across lately. The description of the emotions of the different characters, are useful to the reader. Not a bunch of useless information’s to fill out the pages, and for that, I’m grateful.
I never read the backside of the books, before I start reading and I’m glad I didn’t. It seems it contains spoilers, which frankly makes me mad. It contains too much information and if I had read it, I wouldn’t have had the same reading experience.
I’d recommend this book to anyone who likes a good story, aiming toward the female population of readers, I’m sure you will have a blast.
It took me like 3 days to finish, I was so interested to see what it ended with, and I was surprised. Love it when you’re not sure how the author is going to round up their story.
