    "Beautiful story, Great characters"

    Book was beautifully written. Characters were easily identified. The story really makes you think about what you would have done in her place. Definitely worth listening to.

    Story
    "Distracting word choice"
    Any additional comments?

    I love the story of this book. I'm an avid reader of young adult literature, and my high school students were all talking about this one, so I thought I'd give it a try. The story was good, but the language is not even close to the way a teenager would think or speak. The author used some really pretentious, complex vocabulary that REALLY took me out of the moment. The narration added to this at times- I had trouble getting through the first part of the book. Mia's parents read as the archetype, exaggerated hipster "cool-parents". It was really offputting. Once I got into the meat of the story, I let myself get swept up in the narrative and I could put those annoyances out of my mind.

    Story
    "It was ok."

    The story was of young love. I knew it would be a bit cheesy so I can't complain too much about that. But I've definitely read better.

    "Good story, bad language "

    Good story but too much use of the F word and other swearing. I had to pre read it for my 13 year old and I don't think I'll let her read it.

    Story
    ""Music""

    As a musician I almost quit listening to the book when it came to the "music" that was played between chapters. For a book about a classical musician, that mentions several very famous musicians and composers it is a cardinal sin to use MIDI computerized strings to add "music" to the listening experience! It would have been better to leave it out all together.

    Story
    "My heart broke for Mia"
    What did you love best about If I Stay?

    I love the narration of the story. It really made you feel what the character was feeling. I love how the character went back and forth between the present situation and the past, when she recalls and describes each member of her family and friends particularly her boyfriend, Adam.


    What does Kirsten Potter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The ambiance or what the character is feeling at the moment.
