Review: If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Do you like to cry? Then you should totally read If I Stay by Gayle Forman! No, seriously, if you don't like books that make you emotional, then don't even try with this one.

Seventeen-year old Mia has an awesome family. Her parents are fantastic and she loves her younger brother. One snowy morning, the family goes out for a drive and everything changes.

Mia finds herself stuck in the middle of here and not here, for a lack of a better phrasing. She learns the fate of her parents and brother and now she has to decide if she wants to stay or move on.

The whole book is told from Mia's perspective and the various people in her life, her grandparents, friends and boyfriend, all make various cameo appearances.

Here's what I'll say: it's GOOD. Also, there's a sequel. So just keep that in mind when you're crying into a bucket.

Highly recommended particularly for high school students.
