A sophisticated, layered, and heartachingly beautiful story about the power of family and friends, the choices we all make - and the ultimate choice Mia commands.

It jumped around too much. It was a lot of flash backs and the voices weren't great. It made it hard to follow the story
I don't know I'll continue to read
No, I thought it was kind of monotoned
I wouldn't do many flashbacks. It makes it hard to keep up with the story but I guess it had to be told from that perspective.
Just not my deal, Others didn't' like it also.
A better narrator and more character development would have made this a better listening experience.
I doubt I'll listen to anything by Gale Forman again.
The narrator sounded like a middle aged woman but the book is told from a 17 year old's perspective so it was very off putting.
None, I just wish they all had stronger personalities.
Seriously, don't waste your time.
The story was nice and happy, but I really just wanted to comment on the narrator. The story is supposed to be about a 17 year old girl, but the narrator sounds more like she's around 30 years old. It makes it hard to picture a high school student talking.
I have a book addiction and an 2 hour commute, thank god for the sanity of audible
Yes, The story was compelling. You are right there in the moment with her as she has to make her choices
she gives the character a great voice, helps keep you engaged in some of the slow points of the story. Had me in tears several times, where if I had been reading I am not sure that that would of happened
It had a good story line, and realistic characters.
The ending :)
She was a good match for the main character telling the story.
I read during my commute, and I looked forward to listening on the drive.
Good book, and I am going to get the second book.
What can I say? Outstanding listen. Author, Gayle Forman, you really get it. Kirsten Potter, you really get it and perfect for the voice to send the message out there. High recommend for anyone to read.
Yes I would try another one of her books.
She put some amazing feeling in her reading.
The overall story was extremely interesting, some portions were a bit sappy sweet, but overall a good story and should make for an even better movie. The tears will be flowing so don't listen on the road if you don't relish the idea of being gawked at by surrounding drivers!
The story was very nice - I listened to it straight through the day
This was a good story. I would possibly listen to it again. It was well written and wrapped up well. Very creative.
The strength of this book is the complexity and richness of the backstory. The life the character is living is rich and full. Her memories and the response of her friends and family tell a varied and complex story of a young girl maturing into womanhood surrounded by interesting people.
