What if you only had 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: looks, popularity, the perfect boyfriend. Friday, February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it turns out to be her last.
The catch: Samantha still wakes up the next morning. Living the last day of her life seven times 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
My Review: Samantha has the perfect life. Perfect looks, friends, school life, and boyfriend. However this is all about to change. Samantha will reply Feb 12 over and over again. The day started out as any day except that it would be her last. She leaves her house dressed up all in red to go with her girlfriends outfits, they all dressed up for an early valentine's day. Samantha gets into her friends car when she come to pick her up for school and picks up another friend to complete their clique. After school they all head to one of their houses and prepare for a big party. At the party they don't care about much, they drink, hang out, and chill with some guys. One the way home one friend drives over the limit and without a seat belt, the other encouraging her and Sam trying to slow it all down, but not before they crash. Now all Sam can do it replay the same day over and over trying to figure out the value of everything she has.
