Review: The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder
Author: Lisa Schroeder
Published: June 28 2011
Amber’s life is spinning out of control. All she wants is to turn up the volume on her iPod until all of the demands of family and friends fade away. So she sneaks off to the beach to spend a day by herself.
Then Amber meets Cade. Their attraction is instant, and Amber can tell he’s also looking for an escape. Together they decide to share a perfect day: no pasts, no fears, no regrets.
The more time that Amber spends with Cade, the more she’s drawn to him. And the more she’s troubled by his darkness. Because Cade’s not just living in the now—he’s living each moment like it’s his last.
Summary taken from Goodreads
That is all I can say right now.
I picked up this book on a whim during my last library trip. I recognized it’s spine while perusing the lovely spines of all the books. I remembered it was written in verse, and I thought, why the heck not? It’s time I give this whole verse thing a try.
And I am so g l a d I did!
This book follows our main character Amber as she is trying desperately to just have a day for herself before everything changes. For a while, we know nothing. I was so confused as to why she was running, why she seemed so depressed, and where she was going. Slowly, though, more answers are revealed shedding light on Amber’s current situation and her way of coping. And may I say, her situation was definitely not what I was expecting. But, that is all I will say about that!
(I am always afraid to spoil things for you all! So I am always ever so careful.)
Soon into the book, Amber meets Cade. Oh, Cade. Yes, we only know each other for less than 24 hours, but how easy it is to fall for the sweet and handsome, yet, broken, boy. The time they spend together is beautiful. Learning so much from one another. Ahh, I just can’t explain how much I loved it!
I really don’t want to give anything else away- but let me just tell you this- READ THIS BOOK. If you have never read a book written in verse, seriously, this would be a great one to start with. Obviously, it was a hit for me.
