YRCA Nominee #2: Before I Fall

Annotation:  After she dies in a car crash, teenaged Samantha relives the day of her death over and over again until, on the seventh day, she finally discovers a way to save herself.  

My thoughts:

I struggled through the first half of this book.  Not because it wasn't well written but because I disliked actually disliked is too too weak-- I hated the main character Sam.  She was shallow, cruel and a follower.  But as she relives the day over and over she evolves into a character that I wanted to survive. The ending was perfect.  Will it be good enough to win the award?  I don't really is a girl book so I don't think so.  What are your thoughts?
