June 17, 09 If I Stay by Gayle Forman


If I Stay is about a girl named Mia who has everything. A lovely boyfriend, a wonderful family, a devoted best friend, and a love of the cello. But then she gets in a car accident, and finds herself out of her body, while her body is in a coma. Soon she realizes that she alone can use if she stays or not.

This book was amazing. Forman weaves the flashbacks and hospital scenes effortlessly. I loved the characters, especially Mia's family and their former rocker lifestyle. The writing was amazing, and the book itself made me think, and wonder what I would do if I were in Mia's position. This book also has my favorite make out scene ever, so that alone gives it half a star.

Emma out!


  1. I've heard nothing but awesome things about this book. I'll definitely have to bump this up on my list. :)

  2. You should! Make out scene alone makes it worth reading! Oh, and you have like...the writing...*coughs*
