Summary
A huge party to celebrate Cupid Day ends in a car accident for popular girl Samantha King. When Samantha wakes up the next day, she quickly realizes that it is still February 12th, and she has the opportunity to relive that fatal day. In fact, Samantha finds herself reliving that day seven times, and each time she learns something about herself, her friends, and the classmates that they bully. She finally realizes that by making even the smallest changes she has enormous power to affect others.
Critique
An emotional roller-coaster debut. The story is gripping and suspenseful and the characters are intriguing. A unique glimpse into what makes a "mean girl" tick. A thought-provoking and insightful novel. Mature content makes this more appropriate for older readers. Highly recommend.
