Where She Went (If I Stay #2), by Gayle Forman
Barnes & Noble
It's been three years since the devastating accident . . . three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever.
Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Julliard's rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future-and each other.
Told from Adam's point of view in the spare, lyrical prose that defined If I Stay, Where She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance.
A perfect sequel to If I Stay. Like the first book, it's a kick-in-the-gut read from start to finish. We learn what happened after Mia woke up and how their relationship progressed and ended.
I kept wondering if -- after seeing each other again in NYC three years later -- they were going to get back together or go their separate ways once and for all. Either ending would have done this book justice.
(Spoilers after the jump)
But I'm so relieved that they got their HEA! I'm a sucker for a happy ending.
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE.
