Review: The Day Before

The Day BeforeThe Day Before by Lisa Schroeder

307 pages
Expected publication: June 28th 2011
by Simon Pulse

The Day Before is the latest from author Lisa Schroeder.
Written like a really long poem, the author takes us through the story of the main character Amber and her present problem of just finding she was switched at birth from the hospital and her new parent wanting to get to know her. We are also introduced to Cade who is having his own crisis at the time. Written like a poem with a personal letter set being exchanged through the characters make this book an interesting read with some complex themes and life issues that hook the reader in.
The Day Before was a great read with a wonderful heartbreaking story interwoven in the pages.

Book Blurb from Goodreads:
Sometimes there's no turning back.

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 her 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 that 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.
