The critically acclaimed, bestselling novel from Gayle Forman, author of Where She Went, Just One Day, and Just One Year.
Soon to be a major motion picture, starring Chloe Moretz!
In the blink of an eye everything changes. Seventeen ­year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall what happened afterwards, watching her own damaged body being taken from the wreck. Little by little she struggles to put together the pieces- to figure out what she has lost, what she has left, and the very difficult choice she must make. Heartwrenchingly beautiful, this will change the way you look at life, love, and family. Now a major motion picture starring Chloe Grace Moretz, Mia's story will stay with you for a long, long time.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 02, 2009 – The last normal moment that Mia, a talented cellist, can remember is being in the car with her family. Then she is standing outside her body beside their mangled Buick and her parents corpses, watching herself and her little brother being tended by paramedics. As she ponders her state ( Am I dead? I actually have to ask myself this ), Mia is whisked away to a hospital, where, her body in a coma, she reflects on the past and tries to decide whether to fight to live. Via Mia s thoughts and flashbacks, Forman (Sisters in Sanity) expertly explores the teenager s life, her passion for classical music and her strong relationships with her family, friends and boyfriend, Adam. Mia s singular perspective (which will recall Alice Sebold s adult novel, The Lovely Bones) also allows for powerful portraits of her friends and family as they cope: Please don t die. If you die, there s going to be one of those cheesy Princess Diana memorials at school, prays Mia s friend Kim. I know you d hate that kind of thing. Intensely moving, the novel will force readers to take stock of their lives and the people and things that make them worth living. Ages 14 up.

If I stay

This book is a very quick and easy read. It definitely held my attention as Mia struggled with her decision to fight or let go. I found myself rooting for her but understanding her difficult choice. I could see this book becoming a movie.


Did she get into Juilliard? Did they end up together??? The ending was abrupt and many parts dragged. I don 't agree with all the rave reviews.
