Just listen, Adam says with a voice that sounds like shrapnel.
I open my eyes wide now.I sit up as much as I can.And I listen.
Stay, he says.
Choices. Seventeen-year-old Mia is faced with some tough ones: Stay true to her first love—music—even if it means losing her boyfriend and leaving her family and friends behind?
Then one February morning Mia goes for a drive with her family, and in an instant, everything changes. Suddenly, all the choices are gone, except one. And it's the only one that matters.
If I Stay is a heartachingly beautiful book about the power of love, the true meaning of family, and the choices we all make.

Finally read this and so glad I did, but also so mad that I put it off for so long. This book was beautiful and heartbreaking and had me in tears multiple times out of both joy and sadness. I consider Gayle Forman a favourite author of mine, but now I feel like I can truly say that having read this. Forman's writing style is always impressive and I feel like her name can simply guarantee a good read. Mia's story was really interesting I loved all of the flashbacks, tying the pieces together so that the story was more than just a girl in a coma. It was a story of love, friendship, family, music.... It was really quite beautiful. 

Happy reading!
