The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder is the type of book you have to keep reading to find out what’s really going on. It’s a quick read because it’s written in verse. If you are like me, you can finish the story in one day, especially because this story will capture your attention from the very start.

In the beginning we meet Amber and it’s obvious she has huge problems in her life. One morning, she packs her bags with her most important things and leaves a note for her family. We don’t really know what exactly is going on with Amber but you can tell, it’s not good.

This is Amber’s big day, it’s the day before – tomorrow her life will change and never be the same. She’s not looking forward to tomorrow and just wants to be alone. She planned to spend the day by herself. Her day takes a turn for better when she meets Cade, a striking young man who she wants to get to know more.

Amber knows something is up with Cade too – and to escape their tomorrow, they both decide to spend the day together with no worries. As the “day before” tomorrow goes on, they both reveal what is in store for them tomorrow. They only have this one day.

Amber and Cade form a special bond on their one “day before” together. If you want to find out what’s in store for Amber and Cade tomorrow, check out this book!
