(4.5 stars)I don’t really have the words to describe what I felt about The day before, other than it was simply beautiful.Fate brings Amber and Cade to meet at the aquarium; both characters are dealing with their own problems and just want a day to escape from them. However what starts off as a chance meeting ends up providing an unforgettable day for both, the day before their lives will significantly change. The day before was written in verse, this was a first for me and I thought that I would find it quite awkward to read, but I found myself flying through the pages. Lisa Schroeder did an amazing job; her writing was alluring, poignant and so beautiful. There were so many wonderful quotes that I wish I could have put in this review.If you haven’t read The day before, I would definitely recommend that you do, as it’s one of those books which remains lingering on your mind for a while afterwards.
