Before I Fall, by Lauren Oliver

Sam dies in a car crash with her drunken best friends, but hears her alarm and wakes—on the morning of the crash. As she lives the day over and over again, desperate to change the outcome, she begins to understand her life and the effects each person's actions can have on others. Best: Multi-faceted characters. Worst: Sometimes so grim it can take you by surprise.

Good for: This book was remarkably good and you should read it. I think a lot of people enter this story already in a combative relationship with the main character due to her "popular" status, but if you look at her life from her perspective, you're bound to sympathize.
