If I Stay




Synopsis (from Amazon): The critically acclaimed, bestselling novel from Gayle Forman, author of Where She WentJust 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.




One (or more) Sentence Summary:  I have not seen the movie....I always go to the book first!  I can't wait to see the movie since If I Stay was an amazing story.  I loved how we got to learn about Mia and her family/friends while she is laying in the hospital struggling for her life.  I know a lot teens have read the book, and I think it is a great book for them to read.  My son and I listened to it on our way to hockey tournament.  I was so surprised he didn't put his headphones on to tune out the audio.  


Would I Read Other Books by the Author:  I must read Where She Went, book 2.  I would also like to read
