FROM GOODREADS: 

One moment can change everything.

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.

MY REVIEW:

The Day Before is a lyrical YA novel that draws you in line by line and tells a powerful story of fear, love, emotional pain, and change as one girl discovers her family and one boy makes a sacrifice for his family. Ultimately, there is the realization that hope and strength given with love from one person to another can make all the difference when one has to deal with the difficult experiences of life. This is a fast read, one well worth every second of your time. Savor it.
