Author Biography

Lauren Oliver was previously an editorial assistant at a publishing house in New York. A graduate of the University of Chicago and the MFA program at New York University, she is now a full-time writer and lives in Brooklyn, New York. BEFORE I FALL is her first novel.

Review

In her debut novel, Lauren Oliver channels all the awkwardness and wonder of teenage consciousness within a poignant framework...as someone said of Nick Hornby, it takes a mature writer to describe immaturity, Lauren Oliver proves this to be true in her thought provoking memorable debut. - Herald Sun

the tone is balanced by the suspense and knowing asides about how schoolgirls really think and operate -the author herself is only 25. In learning the consequences of every action, the dawning of compassion and capacity to love, Oliver gets to the heart of the matter-what it means to live a good life that transcends the typical high-school thriller. - Sunday Times Perth

It s a powerful story with a great message. - Girlfriend

an incredible debut...This exquisitely written novel renders perfectly the world of today's teenager... this inspiring tale refrains from simple moralising, instead surprising us with a superbly complex and humane ending. - Hobart Mercury

Forget reality and enjoy this achingly heartbreaking debut...an excellent read. - NW

Drawing comparisons with the bestselling The Lovely Bones, this is the story of 18-year-old Sam Kingston, who is killed in a car crash one rainy night... Oliver packs a powerful message in her teenage voice.' - The Sunday Telegraph

Poignant . . . This tale of second chances will have you clinging on to your Kleenex - Now

'BEFORE I FALL is beautifully written; brave, sincere and very addictive. It captures the essence of high-school brilliantly, and will have you laughing, crying and philosophising. I wholeheartedly recommend BEFORE I FALL. The best book I ve read in the last year.' -
