Get your tissue box ready for this one! What an emotional and yet beautiful story. I must admit to being a little skeptical with the ‘out of body’ point of view of Mia, but it was surprisingly well done and nicely offset by the flash backs.
I truly enjoyed the characters in this novel, and particularly, the dynamics of Mia’s hippie family. The little descriptive touches of clothing and quirks really did it for me, as did the incorporation of music into the character development and storyline.
On a deeper level, I was forced to think about the choices we make in life, what really matters and how ultimately, only we can decide what happens to us.
I did feel that the story was a little too short but this is a sure sign of a gripping, well-written, emotive story.
This is a very touching and poignant sequel to "If I Stay"- richly detailed and told with heart as the story reveals the truth for Adam and ..Show More »Mia in alternating slices of the past and present. In an interesting turn, this follow-up is narrated with gut-punching honesty from Adams perspective. The author keeps her reader in suspense until late in the story and does not make it predictable as to how things will actually turn out for the two main characters. The audio production is better than good, they engaged just the right voice to portray Adam...it is pretty much exactly what I would imagine he sounds like. A don't miss, in my opinion, particularly if you are a fan of the original story.
