Flawless and irresistible, profoundly moving and endlessly emotional. How To Save A Life is a truly unique and beautiful reimagining of Groundhog Day, asking if life and death are preordained, if our destiny is predetermined, and if some lives are meant to be saved.
Dom is paralyzed with regret over breaking up with his girlfriend, Mia, ten years ago. When she unexpectedly appears back in his life, only to die that very same night, he becomes caught in a Groundhog Day-like time loop in which he tries desperately to save her life over and over again, only to fail each time. This crazy time loop turns his life upside down, but teaches him important lessons about life: to look beyond yourself, to live life to the fullest, to love unselfishly. But in the end, will Dom be able to save Mia?
I loved this book and had all the feels throughout. Poignant, bittersweet and yet ultimately uplifting, I found myself re-reading certain passages again just so I could fully absorb their beauty.
Thank you so much to Netgalley for an advance copy in exchange for my honest review.
