| The debut novel of the American writer Lauren Oliver "Before I will fall" practically right after an exit became the real sensation. The idea of "Groundhog Day" used in the novel is not new, but we know that the amount of ideas in general is limited, and a lot of things depend on a way of giving. |
Probably, each of us in life made mistakes which would be glad to correct. Here only often we realize own mistakes and misses too late when nothing can already be changed. And if you got chance to correct a similar error how you think, it would manage to you to make it?

Quotes from the book "Before I Fall"
"— ninety nine percent — you simply do not know the most part of time as well as why threads are bound, and it is normal. You will do good, and there will be an evil. You will make the evil, and there will be a good. You will make nothing and everything will blow up. And only very much, very seldom, when thanks to a miracle of accidents and coincidence of a butterfly flop exactly as it is necessary, and all threads for a minute are weaved together, to you the chance to arrive correctly drops out"
"It is amazing as easily everything changes as it is easy to go at way on the habitual road and it to appear in absolutely unexpected place. Only one false step, one hitch, one roundabout track — also you will meet new friends or you will spoil reputation, you will find the new guy or you will tear with the old. Earlier I never reflected on it, was not able to understand. I have a strange feeling that all these opportunities exist at the same time as if every instant we live one thousand others, the most different, the moments imposed at each other"
"It is amazing as people strongly change... As though in people there is nothing constant. As though something is torn when to you it is executed twelve, or thirteen or in what there age you turn from the child into the teenager, after become absolutely other person. Perhaps, even less happy. Perhaps, even worse"
