If I Stay by Gayle Forman

if-i-stay.jpg

I've never read a book quite like this one before. Mia lives a life full of love. She loves her Mom, Dad, and little brother Teddy. She loves playing the cello. She loves her best friend Kim. And she loves her rock-n-roll boyfriend Adam. She struggles a bit with low self-esteem, but otherwise she's quite happy. So this novel is about happiness, right? I guess it depends how much of an optimist you are. As she lay in a coma, Mia recounts the 24 hours following her catastrophic car accident. She watches over her own body and those who visit her in the hospital. She struggles to decide whether to succumb to her horrific grief and injuries or fight to live and build a new future for herself.
