Where She Went

Cover: 'Where She Went'

Staff Review: "Where She Went" by Gayle Forman


This is the companion book to "If I Stay".  This story picks up a couple of years after the first book ends and is told from the point of view of Mia's former boyfriend, Adam, who is now a rock star.  This story tells the aftermath of Mia's choice from the end of "If I Stay".

There are sometimes no words for a book where at the end all you can do is sigh and hold the book in a hug to your chest.  That was just this book for me.  The level to which the author can communicate so many emotions to my soul is simply amazing.  As a companion story, I was beyond satisfied with the end result of the overall story.  This is a story about love, loss and ultimately learning who you are in the world you put yourself in.  The series is wonderful reading that all young adult readers should add to their list.

Audience: teens | Genre: fiction
