Review: If I Stay

If I Stay
by Gayle Forman

Goodreads Description:

Everybody has to make choices. Some might break you. For seventeen-year-old Mia, surrounded by a wonderful family, friends and a gorgeous boyfriend decisions might seem tough, but they're all about a future full of music and love, a future that's brimming with hope. 

But life can change in an instant. 

A cold February morning ...a snowy road ...and suddenly all of Mia's choices are gone. Except one. As alone as she'll ever be, Mia must make the most difficult choice of all. 

With the film trailer out, I thought I'd better post an overdue review of this little beauty!

This was my first Gayle Forman, and I'm hooked. Although short, this story is beautifully sweet and believable. The stream of consciousness style lends so well to this story and the characters felt well-rounded. I especially loved Adam. You will be left wanting more, so be sure to check out the companion novel Where She Went. I still cannot believe I picked this gorgeous hardback like new for £1 from a charity shop!

What did you think of If I Stay and are you excited for the upcoming film?
