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.

The narrator did a great job and I really enjoyed listening to her performance! But I wasn't hearing a 17 year old girl... I was hearing her mother. I just think that it should have been narrated by a younger voice (Kate Simses, Emma Galvin, Kate Rudd, Jenna Lamia, Sarah Drew). However, I will look for books narrated by Kirsten Potter as she really is great to listen to!
First of all this book is very short, only four hours. If you are in need of a quick listen this is it. This book can be compared to 'The Fault in Our Stars' but unfortunately I could not relate to the music aspect. I loved the writing and would read more books from this author, but probably not in this series. The narrator was GREAT, but I do not think this narrator was right for the part. She seemed older instead of a high school girl.
I Loved the fact that the book had a great plot i just feel like the author strayed from the story a lot. I wanted a little more details of what were going on during the accident, during the hospital scenes, but after 5 minutes of details regarding the incident, there would be 30 more minutes of useless teenage love details.
very misleading. in a good way. i hate books with no real ENDING, but it was okay.
She is a wonderful Narrator. So awesome. Made the book entertaining.
not really, im already in love.
great buy overall. i do recommend.
Yes I think I would. I found it to be a great listen. Kirsten Potter was wonderful.
Wow. I want to say Adam at first, but everyone was very interesting.
I enjoyed her proformance very much. She did sound a bit older then a seventeen year old.
I think I could have. It is very long when you compair it to other books.
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.
