Before I Fall - Lauren Oliver The concept of this book is just brilliant, I couldn't put it down from the moment I realised where it was going. At first I was sceptical about a book where the main character seemed to be so very unlikeable, but the fact that she is is exactly why the book works and her flaws are integral to the plot. As soon as you realise that, you start to look at the story in a completely different light. Such a brilliantly haunting/touching book, a must read.
