Book Review of If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Hardcover, 201 pages
Published April 2nd 2009 by Dutton Juvenile
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.
My thoughts:
I really liked this book. I love how quickly she was able to establish the characters so that you actually CARED about what happened so quickly. That’s a pretty big deal in my opinion as it takes a lot of skill as a writer. I definitely recommend!
