If I Stay

Book: If I Stay
Series: If I Stay #1
Author: Gayle Forman

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.

Choices. Seventeen-year-old Mia is faced with some tough ones: Stay true to her first love—music—even if it means losing her boyfriend and leaving her family and friends behind?

Then one February morning Mia goes for a drive with her family, and in an instant, everything changes. Suddenly, all the choices are gone, except one. And it's the only one that matters.-Goodreads

Review: After a tragic car accident kills Mia's parents and little brother, Mia hovers in almost a ghost-like state watching things around her while she is in a coma. She also reflects on her life growing up and needs to decide if she wants to be with her family or return to the living world. 

I thought this was very well done. A story about music, friendship, first love and most importantly, family. Very engaging. 

Grade: 4/5
