Teaser Tuesday: Before I Fall

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share a few “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Remember high school? (Or perhaps you are still in high school.) Remember the popular kids that could get away with anything? Say or do anything to anyone else and still be prom royalty? Sam Kingston is one of those girls, right up until the day she dies. But February 12th doesn't end with her death. Sam wakes up each morning, on the same day, forced to have a new perspective on her life, friends, and family.

A lot of people describe this as Mean Girls meets Groundhog Day, and they would be right on. If you were one of the kids that was picked on in high school, I'd love to hear your thoughts on this book. I'm having a difficult time with the ending.

Here's the Teaser:
"Do you think I was being stupid? Naive?  
Try not to judge. Remember that we're the same, you and me. 
I thought I would live forever too."
-pg. 132, Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

What are you reading?

I wish I had time to get to this... it's been on my to-read shelf forever and looks so good. I can't comment on being picked on in high school... being a loner had its perks I guess. :)

My TT this week is from The Magicians.

I wasn't picked on in high school...just pretty much ignored (except for my small circle of friends). I don't think that was necessarily a bad thing, though.

Thanks for stopping by mine!

Great teaser!! Sounds a little Groundhog Dayish, I didn't really enjoy that movie though, but this book sounds good!!
