Where She Went

Book: Where She Went
Series: If I Stay #2
Author: Gayle Forman

It's been three years since the devastating accident... three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever.

Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard's rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future - and each other.-Goodreads

Review: It seems strange to type this, but I found this book more emotional than it's predecessor. In book 1, Mia lost both parents and her little brother to a devastating car accident. Even though the subject matter was sad, I felt the overall tone of the book was happy in Mia reliving positive family memories. This book takes place three years later after Mia left for Julliard and never looked back. Adam never had closure. He realizes it seems ridiculous to pine over what people would assume was just a high school romance but he knows in his heart it was more. Forman did a great job writing Adam's thoughts and emotions, it felt very 'real.' Overall, great duology. 

Grade: 4/5
