YA Fiction

If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Holy fucking hell, this book will make you CRY! Also, don’t read it before bed – it will keep you awake, staring into the dark until you finally give in and watch a few episodes of How I Met Your Mother in order to try and lighten the mood a bit.

Here’s why: Mia, her younger brother Teddy, their mom, and their dad are driving to the grandparents’ house to visit them on a snow day. Between one paragraph and the next, Mia becomes the sole survivor of a car accident. The rest of the book is an out-of-body Mia reflecting on her life, what’s left of it, and whether or not she should stay.

So yeah.

It was good but definitely have a good sitcom on hand. You’re gonna need it.
