This is Lauren Oliver's debut novel and it certainly doesn't disappoint!
She shows real potential as she weaves a story about a girl named Sam. Sam is
your average popular girl. She and her friends do whatever they want and
everyone bows down to them basically. On Cupid Day night, after driving home
from a party, they crash and it is uncertain whether Sam is still alive or not.
She wakes up the next day except it's actually still Cupid Day. Sam relives
that same day for a while, wondering why she has been given this second chance
along with the reader. This novel really pulls you in and if you're like me,
you probably won't put it down until you're done!
I would recommend this to:Anyone who likes to see people change for the better.

A heartfelt story about a young girl who lost her family in a car
accident and is now laying on a hospital bed barely clinging on to life. She
struggles with the decision if she should stay (without her parents and
brother) or leave this world to be with them. I personally love this book
because what if we do have the choice to stay or go? Are we even brave enough

Boston. She struggles to restart her life after an adulterous affair leaves an
unforgettable "scarlet letter" on her life. She faces many challenges

This story was great. It really makes you think of whats going to happen
in the next chapter.It was very discriptive and unprodictuble. The book shows
how the Hardy families relationship was strenghthened as the story went on. The
two brothers needed each other to live and cath the hostages the thieves had
captured.In the end it was amazing.
I would recommend this to:I would recomend this to mystery lovers.

In the riveting story about true love and redemption, Francine Rivers
weaves together the story about Angel, who was sold into prostitution at a
young age and has lost everything about her identity down to her very name to
men who want nothing more than to sleep with her.Guarding herself, she builds
walls, expecting only to be hurt by these men. Until one day, a man named Hosea
falls in love with her, but not like the other men. He loves her for nothing
else than who she truly is, looking past the identity both the men and herself
has given to her as a prostitute, but as someone beautiful both inside and out.
I wept. This book made me wept. Not just at the end, but the middle and even
the very beginning. Full. on. weeping. This book showed a love unlike any other.
Minor spoiler alert: This book got a little tiring at one point, because Hosea
would never give up on her, no matter what happened. He loved her despite her
past. She slept with her father, could never have children (a dream Michael
Hosea always wanted), and slept even with his brother. Yet, he gave his full
love, continuously, every moment.
I would recommend this to: It's based on the Biblical story of Hosea, but nevertheless a great read

The first book to ever be written (1st one found, anyways). It was amazing! Although it's very basic, the story is based off of Gilgamesh and his best friend Enkidu who become inseparable until death. This poem describes their adventures and shows the strength of their relationship.
I would recommend this to:People who'll read anything! I'm sure you won't be disappointed by this short read.
