If I Stay by Gayle Forman


If I Stay
by Gayle Forman

Mia wakes up from an accident - a bad car accident. What she soon realizes is that she's not quite herself anymore. Her body is in a coma and she is free to roam and watch all angles of what is happening. Her parents are dead and her little brother in bad condition. What Mia has to decide is if there is a life, if she wants one, without her family.

Will her boyfriend and other family be enough to make her decide to stay. Or will she be better off with her family, on the other side. Mia must decide whether or not she stays or goes.

This mind-blowing, tear-jerking novel was an enchantment. I was immersed in the story, into Mia's character - completely and totally. I couldn't wait to finish the audiobook - performed by the marvelous Kirsten Potter.

If ever you need some deep, moving novel - this should be the one you pick up. The book left me nearly wordless and I hope I am describing it in a light that makes it so. When you read it, you'll know exactly what I mean.

5/5 Roses

  6. I read this one and loved it! Great characters and pacing though the bit in the middle where the boyfriend tries to sneak into the ICU to see her was a bit of a stretch. I enjoyed it over all!
