Synopsis

The critically acclaimed, bestselling novel from Gayle Forman, author of Where She WentJust One Day, and Just One Year.
 
Soon to be a major motion picture, starring Chloe Moretz!
 
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. Heartwrenchingly beautiful, this will change the way you look at life, love, and family. Now a major motion picture starring Chloe Grace Moretz, Mia's story will stay with you for a long, long time.

This book was good. I thought it would be more adventurous and thriller. I guess romance is not my cup of tea. I was confused at the end if she stays? i only reAlizd she stays until i saw the second book.

"If i stay" was a powerful book with lots of emotion, but, there was not alot of action in-between the larger moments. It could have been a more ACTION-PACKED book, but, for the most of it, I enjoyed it. - Kaesha

I enjoyed this book for its quality in writing, it was artful and descriptive. It just wasn't for me. Firstly because of my beliefes but I will keep those to myself. Secondly im a random teenager, and being a teenager you cant expect me to appreciate something just because of its quality, to me it was a little slow but hey, you might not share this opinion, and granted this is my first book review so the construction and order of my critiques may be askew. Anyway it took uo some of my time and I appreciate that so three stars.

Mediocre
January 3rd, 2015
This book was a very fast read, in fact, I finished it in one sitting. I really wanted to like this book after seeing all the hype, but it did not meet my expectations whatsoever. The story was extremely rushed, there was no chemistry between Adam and Mia at all, and the events were no where near "touching" like the critics said. I'm super disappointed because I really wanted to like this book. ):

When I finished reading this all I could keep thinking was "WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF?!?!" I love books that portray good family dynamics, and this book does it perfectly. Mia has an accident with her family....and then she's placed in a comatose state but her body is out and wondering how her family, friends, and mostly her boyfriend, are dealing with her current health status....I won't tell you more. Grab your tissues

I for some reason didn't get as involved with the characters as I would have thought. I have people telling me they cried at the movie and I have cried at books, but this one didn't make me sad/emotionally involved as I had anticipated...anyways, I still recommend it and give it 4 solid stars.

Lovely Story, Needs More Depth
August 29th, 2014
The story and the characters were very intriguing but I felt that the story was too short for me to delve into it and really care about what was going on. It was a good way to kill a few hours but was notjimg overtly special. Definitely think it will make a great movie though.

I found myself skipping pages because personally I think there's too much fluff in the novel. Not much of it relates back to the story. I did cry at the end of it though, so I'm not saying it's a bad book. It's a great book considering it really makes you feel what the characters feel.

I read this book on a chance as i have a 15 year daughter named Mia. The instant connection to a character made this book feel very much like an alternate family. My daughter loves to sing and spends hours practicing in her room. While teaching herself to play the keyboard. Or listening to bands like Falling in Reverse & Sleeping With Sirens some Emo bands of today. This book shows how you can love, connect, & yet new very different over something like music. The tragic twist left me literally gasping for air devastated with pain. As not only do I have a daughter who loves music I have an 8 year old son who loves playing baseball. I live on the west coast where it always rains. The single moment that alerted Mia her journey was very well written and lead to beautiful conversations with others if they to experienced anything similar. (The book is a must read for insight into this experience into others through Mia's soul) Adam was a very integral part of this book but my summary of Adam will be saved for book two review as I read both in two days.
