Book Reviews: If I Stay (If I Stay, #1) by Gayle Forman


Read from November 29 to 30, 2014
"'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.


Everybody has to make choices.

Some might break you.

For seventeen-year-old Mia, surrounded by a wonderful family, friends and a gorgeous boyfriend decisions might seem tough, but they're all about a future full of music and love, a future that's brimming with hope.

But life can change in an instant.

A cold February morning . . . a snowy road . . . and suddenly all of Mia's choices are gone. Except one.

As alone as she'll ever be, Mia must make the most difficult choice of all.

Haunting, heartrending and ultimately life-affirming,
If I Stay will make you appreciate all that you have, all that you've lost - and all that might be.

Includes interviews with the stars of the film, Chloe Moretz and Jamie Blackley."
Well, this was an okay read. I liked it but I didn't feel the story much. I don't hate it but it was as emotional as I expected it to be. Frankly, I had higher expectations.

Mia was pretty cool and I really liked her family. I was actually quite inspired to try out the soundtrack of this book because I really loved how passionate she was about music.

I'm really happy that this was more of a family thing than a romance-centred story! That I loved because that's what it should be about!

This book actually made me tear up twice! And I love that! :P

Overall, this was okay, but I started the sequel already, and that seems better.
