How to Save a Life

This book is a twist on a Groundhog Day type of story. The main character, Dom, regretted calling off his wedding to the love of his life, Mia. She walks back into his life 10 years later, bringing back memories of their time together and reinforcing his regrets that he walked away from her. Unfortunately, he gets one day with her, and then she tragically dies at the end of that day. The story is all about Dom re-living this same day, but making different choices to try to ensure Mia will live at the end of the day.

To be honest, I reluctantly picked up this book as I thought the story would be rather monotonous since the main character relives the same day over and over. I was pleasantly surprised and didn’t want to put the book down as I wanted to see what happened when he made different choices throughout the day. There are several plot twists (no spoilers) to lure you into the story. I tend to judge books by how quickly I read them as a good book is one I don’t want to put down. I love books that are “quick page-turners” and I tend to read them in a short amount of time.


I read How to Save a Life pretty quickly so I would recommend it to others. It made me think about how many little decisions I make in a day, and how those potentially change my entire day.
