Sam Kingston could be described as a "mean girl." She and her best friends, Ally, Elody, and Lindsey are the queen bees of their school, and they think nothing of how their words and actions affect others. But one night, after a party, a car accident claims Sam's life. But, this is not the end...she wakes up to the same day starting over again. Over the course of 7 days, she is given chance after chance to make changes in her actions to try to alter the outcome of her life - and those around her.
Amazon refers to this book as a cross between Groundhog Day and Mean Girls. This is pretty accurate, but it is so much more. It will really make you think about how serious the consequences of bullying can be.
I really enjoyed this book - fast paced and emotionally charged. Word of warning: Moderate language, sexual situations, teen drug and alcohol use, and disturbing material. Not suitable for under the age of 14.
