If I Stay by Gayle Forman takes the readers on a journey to decide whether the main character Mia should leave the world she knows behind or continue with her life. With the needing touch of her loving boyfriend Adam she is stuck in a realm where she isn’t heard, felt, or seen. She learns how much people care about her and how she still can pursue her musical dreams although she’s lost everything.
The book is 230 pages and an easy read. In fact it’s a page turner that keeps it’s readers on the edge always yearning to know what is going to happen next. The author has a writing style that makes one fall in love with words. I recommend the book to someone that is at a stage in their life of wanting to move forward yet don’t know how , or readers that enjoy romantic teen reads.
