If I Stay (If I Stay #1), by Gayle Forman
Barnes & Noble
In a single moment, everything changes. Seventeen-year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall riding along the snow-wet Oregon road with her family. Then, in a blink, she finds herself watching as her own damaged body is taken from the wreck...
A sophisticated, layered, and heart-achingly beautiful story about the power of family and friends, the choices we all make, and the ultimate choice Mia commands.
Big, fat, sloppy, ugly tears. I love this book HARD and finished it in one day. I can't believe I waited so long to read it!
The writing is beautiful, the story is touching, and I love how the book switches seamlessly from the present to the anecdotal past. I felt like I had been punched in the gut with every new chapter.
Where She Went is calling to me!
