Title: If I Stay
Written by: Gayle Forman
Release date: April, 2009
In a single moment, everything changes. Seventeen-year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall riding along the snow-wet Oregon road with her family. Then, in a blink, she finds herself watching as her own damaged body is taken from the wreck...
A sophisticated, layered, and heart achingly beautiful story about the power of family and friends, the choices we all make—and the ultimate choice Mia commands.
If I Stay is a sad, heartbreaking story that left me with tears running down my face.
The story is been told trough Mia. As she thinks of her life, family, friends and boyfriend, there are these flashbacks that take you back in time. We get to know the ups and downs that a family has and the love they share for one another. It felt real and therefore the characters felt real too.
