It's been three years since the devastating accident... three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever.
Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard's rising star and Adam is L.A. tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock-star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future - and each other.
Told from Adam's point of view in the spare, lyrical prose that defined If I Stay, Where She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance.

Although it was written towards a YA audience it was a heartwarming well told story. Where She Went covers a 24 hour period of time using flash backs to explain the background. It is the sequel to If I Stay but I believe you could read this independently as enough information on the prior story is shared.
I am not normally a fan of the flashback novel but this author doesn't spend too much time in each memory allowing for the present day to progress at a decent pace. I found myself wishing the story wouldn't end.
This is my first experience with this narartor and enjoyed his performance of the book.
This was an amazing book, I can't wait to see the movie, because when I saw if I stay, I just couldn't wait to read it and now since I'm done can't wait to see the movie. Overall an Amazing book!
If book one of If I Stay broke your heart as much as it did mine and left you with WAY too many questions, please do yourself a favor & don't give up on this series or storyline!
Listen to Where She Went IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE END OF If I Stay if you can & don't wait for years like I did.
This was easily the best sequel (and most necessary) I have read in ages, if not ever. The emotions were as raw, the music still heard in my head, the characters/family/friends so lovable and respectable yet flawed, talented and real.
I don't want to give anything away plot wise, but I truly adore these characters & hope a book three comes out soon!
Also, the narrator is SO skilled & perfect for this book! I swear every word out of his mouth sounds like music/verse & I am inspired to look up more of his books ♡
I loved the lyrics at the beginning of chapters and they made me so happy at the end,back together at the start of a new beginning it was all so wonderful.
