Book Review: If I Stay & Where She Went by Gayle Forman

Hi guys! Today is Wednesday, which is book review day! I’m going to be sharing my opinion on If I Stay & Where She Went by Gayle Forman. 

Mia is a cello player who lives with her mother and father along with little brother Teddy. It all began one morning when a huge snow storm hit and everything was closed. Her parents thought it would be a good time to go visit family friends..little did they all know their lives would change dramatically on that ride.

They got into a car accident and Mia was the only one that survived but she wasn’t sure if she wanted to live.

I really got hooked into this book was definitely a little odd at some points because her soul as I am going to put it was floating around the hospital while she was unconscious..seeing how things were turning out. The whole book she was mainly in the hospital..and then recovering but her soul was everywhere and no one knew it. She also had a boyfriend named Adam who was trying to convince her to stay and not leave them all but it was a hard decision to make.

She was having such a great life and then everything changed..could she still be the person she wanted to be without half of you family?

In Where She Went, it mainly focused on how her now ex-boyfriend Adam was doing since it had been 3 years since her accident. They were both far away from each other. She had become a cello star and he was continuing on in his band but it was getting to hard for him to continue with unanswered questions about Mia.

He ended up going to one of her performances..she knew he was there. After that moment, they went exploring NY for a night..all over doing random things together. After that one night, they realize they want each other again.

Both were great books but I felt the second was a little off since it focused on Adam and not Mia. It took me a little longer to get hooked but once I did I couldn’t stop.

I hope this review is good..they are both difficult books to explain.

Chat later!
