If I Stay

By: Gayle Forman


Mia Hall is an amazing cellist. She has hard decisions in her life but one of them is should she attend one of the best colleges for music, Juilliard, or be with the guy she is starting to fall for in high school, Adam a singer and guitarist of their band called Shooting star. Not only is college the problem, but a horrific car wreck changes everything for Mia and her family. Between life and death, what will Mia choose?

Quotes I like from the book:

“I realize now that dying is easy. Living is hard.”

“Life might take you down different roads. But each of you gets to decide which one to take.”

“If I stay. If I live. It's up to me.”



Overall, I really enjoyed this book, it kept me reading and not wanting to put down the book. I would recommend this to girls more specifically, who are into love, drama and life events. If you want to know if Mia survives and the rest her family and if her and Adam stay together I suggest you read this book.
