Book Review: I Was Here by Gayle Forman

Hi guys! I’m back with another book review, this time it’s by one of my favorite authors..I Was Here by Gayle Forman. It just came out 2 years ago and I recently picked it up.IMG_0939

It’s about a girl who unfortunately commits suicide..now I’m not typically the person to read books about that but I just grabbed it.

The girls name is Meg. She went off to college in Seattle..while she was there she planned it all outta by figuring out all the details and what she would need to do to commit suicide without anyone noticing.

Now her friend Cody had to go to Seattle to bring all of her stuff back home. While Cody was there she met with Meg’s friends and slept in Meg’s bed..once she got back home Meg’s parents gave Cody her laptop. That was a pretty wrong idea.

Cody went digging to find out why Meg did what she did..and how she did it. There had to be someone who forced her too or something.

Throughout the book..Cody has one of Meg’s friends hack into the laptop to access files and emails to try and get clues. She also pairs up with one of Meg’s friends (I believe) named Ben to help..but he doesn’t always like to get into what was Meg’s personal business.

Cody figures out that Meg was in an online forum that talked all about how to commit suicide and the easy ways too. There was one guy in particular that caught Cody’s eye and she thought that’s who got Meg into the state she was.

Cody and Ben end up locating the guy and tracking him down but it wasn’t really worth it in the end.

This book was a fairly good read. I was hooked to it as normal and enjoyed pretty much every part.

Chat later!
