The Day Before: Book Review

by Lisa Schroeder


Publication Date: June 28th

Main Players: Amber and Caden
Place: Oregon

This was a very different experience.  The entire book is written in verse and so has little to say.  It didn't take me long to get through the whole book.  Considering the lack of words this book turned out to be a good one.  The author really makes the most of each word and puts more feeling and information in a few words than many an author can in a whole chapter.  I managed to care deeply for Cade and fervently wish that it didn't end with the day before but had some small follow up tidbit.  Luckily, as far as that, it ended perfectly.  If you are not deterred by reading a book in verse that jumps around and leaves much to the imagination, give this one a try.  It has a very good message about the importance of today and the brilliant possibility of tomorrow.  When times are at the worst remember it is all just a passing moment. Live.

  1. Interesting. I started reading a book this week that had no quote marks. It was very distracting and I didn't finish it.
