In our world, February 12th is just two days before Valentine’s Day so we’re either excited to go out on a date soon or bummed that we’ll be seeing the new Nicholas Sparks movie with our roommate. In the world of Lauren Oliver’s Before I Fall, it’s Cupid Day in Samantha Kingston’s school and also her last day of life. (Do you still think you got it bad?)
There are many colorful words to describe mean-girl Samantha Kingston when we first meet her, but when she’s forced to relive the last day of her life seven times in a miraculous loop to undo her actions, she reshapes herself to someone who makes you go, “Damn, I’m gonna miss her.” So to celebrate the life of Samantha Kingston, here are seven words of wisdom we learned from her death.
