Just got confirmed and am TOTALLY excited. My name is Tammy and I live in TN with my hubby, my two kids, and our wonderful boxer - Harley.
Over the past several months I have been involved in the First Look book clubs and have loved the opportunity to branch out to other authors I may not have originally choosen. YA has been my fav from the get go and this book has definitely caught my attention. Can't wait to read and discuss - look forward to speaking to you all!

Hi everyone! I'm Adrienne and I just love to read YA. I have a book blog where i review the books I read, and currently have so many books I own and want to read it's ridiculous : D I can't wait to read Before I Fall because it sounds so good!

I just got my confirmation email. Am very excited. I've joined several FL book clubs and found them to be a great way to find authors and books that I normally wouldn't have. This is my first YA FL - and I love YA novels.
I'm a lawyer, married, living in Brooklyn. I'm supposed to be starting my own practice but spend plenty of time reading and writing book reviews on my blog.

Hi everyone! My name is Rosa. This will be my fourth first look. I love this program! I was part of the previous YA first look (Hush, Hush), and absolutely loved the book! I can't wait to get my hands on this one!

Well, I do have a nook now so you could have the publisher scan and send it to me, too
I'm the r-mod for "Literature by Women" and I've been in oodles of First Look's. Before I Fall looks to be a fantastic read - a great premise, IMO.
Paul, if worse-comes-to-worst and you need the ARCs I can always bum QueenofZone2's copy when she's done with it - we work for the same store (I did send a sign-up PM)
No way, Melissa. I'll send you my copy if need be!
I read and knit and dance. Compulsively feel yarn. Consume books. Darn tights. Drink too much caffiene. All that good stuff.

I am a "middle aged" woman who loves to read! It gets cold here in New York and once I am home from work in the evening, there is nothing better than to curl up with a good book and a pot of hot chocolate. I prefer reading to keep my mind active versus vegetating in front of a television set. Hopefully I will be accepted to the First Look for Before I Fall. If so, this will be my 7th First Look.....I am hooked !

Hi there! I'm a middle school student and am really excited to read Before I Fall. This book sounds like something I've never read before so I'd like to get to read more books like this. I'm more into mysteries and Christian books but I'm looking forward to growing in my book selections. This book will be a great start to the new year))

Hello all, "Before I Fall" will have us all talking I would bet. Looks like a wonderful mix of ages in the group. I'm really looking forward to all the discussions.

Hello Everyone! I'm so excited to be in this First Look. This will be the first Young Adult book that I've read in a long time. I think the change will be refreshing and nice.I love readying and usually have a couple of books going on at a time.
Looking forward to a great time with all of you!

I'm an English major turned anthropologist turned aspiring fiction writer. So maybe I've come full circle!
I've always been an avid reader in many genres, including YA. I love talking books and buy a LOT for myself and my family. I'm very excited about "Before I Fall." I loved "If I Stay," which this book is compared to on the site. I was literally standing in my local B&N, crying as I read the opening chapters. Some of my other favorite YA authors include John Green, Sarah Dessen and Laurie Halse Anderson.
Look forwad to chatting with you guys!

This is my first opportunity to be involved in the First Look discussions. Had difficulty signing up and now that I'm here, still trying to figure out how to post my own message. This was the only way I could make a post. I'll catch on quickly, I promise.
My name is Debbie. After 22 yrs. of teaching, I have the opportunity to pursue my hobby. I write YA fiction. I'm working on my own YA novel and am excited to be involved in this discussion group. I look forward to reading and discussing 'Before I Fall'. It looks like an interesting read and I definitely enjoy discussing YA material.

I, like everyone in this discussion, love to read. I love YA books. They take you on a journey, and help you on your own. This is my first time participating, so I don't really know how this works. I hope I like this and I hope you all enjoy the book.

I just applied for my copy of this book and I REALLY hope I'm chosen! I am an avid reader, and have been for as long as I can remember. I love pretty much anything that has pages, words, and a good plot! I'm new to First Look, but I'm super excited for it. Looks like I'll be juggling 4 books at a time, but that doesn't matter, because I love to read!
I am a high school student in NY and am constantly in a book. It's bad, especially in school.
Hopefully I get my confirmation message soon!!! Looking forward to talking to all of you about this book~ it looks AMAZING!
