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. Heart-wrenchingly beautiful, Mia's story will stay with you for a long, long time.
If I Stay is one of the most beautiful books I have read in such a long time. The story was absolutely amazing. I do not want to give much away. If you have not read this book, you must! I am so excited to read the sequel, Where She Went, when I can get my hands on it. This book is definitely powerful and will stay with me for a long time. I would describe it as an emotional story because it will have you laughing and crying.
As you can probably tell, I absolutely loved this book! The story switches back and forth from Mia being in a sort of limbo in the present to events that have happened in her past. This is how she decides if she should stay or go. Forman's writing is a page turner. She has such a way with words that is so gorgeous. I read this book in one sitting because I could not put it down and did not want it to end!
Swords are for fighting!
