Mia is only seventeen years old and faced literally the hardest decision of her life.

After a tragic car accident with her parents and brother, Mia is in a coma at the hospital. She remembers events from her life and sees visitors come and go, all while one question remains.

Should she stay or is it time to let go?

A solid three stars and I feel, true to its genre description, it is best for high schoolers. Very fast read.

If she stays, she is an orphan; if she goes she leaves Adam. Heartaching accurately describes this book and the choice Mia must make after a catastrophic car accident kills her family leaving her in and in between states to decide whether she will live or die.

Started this audio book today on my evening jog, and so far so good!

Definitely is classified correctly as a juvenile fiction piece, but that doesn‘t make for a bad story. I like the general plot line so far, and appreciate the main character.

Interestingly enough, even though it is older and was also made into a movie, I have NO idea how it will end.

(It‘s short enough that after another 6 mile workout or two I might finish!)

OMGEE! I loved this book. It alternated between present and past both parts told from the main character's point of view. Page turner.

So. This was just “okay” I‘m considering looking up the movie to see what I think. Maybe it just wasn‘t a “for me” type of book. It is out of my norm. (Second book was a bit better)

Honestly, books make me feel. It‘s an outpouring of all kinds of emotion and feelings. An adventure with every word and movement within the story. The characters, the story, and I become intertwined. They become so real. Am I making any sense? Ahh. { This goes for all books in general, not specifically targeting “If I Stay,” but I needed to tag something ;) }

I keep forgetting to post! Lately I‘ve been into audiobooks, mainly because I‘ve been driving more and I could even listen in the shower haha I really enjoyed the movie adaptation of this book but for some reason I hadn‘t read the series so I decided to give it a try :) It‘s been a while since I‘ve watched the film but it‘s definitely different in a lot of areas, but in good ways because the book is obviously still a good read! Emotion!💔😣😰😳🤫

I laughed, I cried (though I'm not sure if at the right parts), I enjoyed the book. It's a quick read for a good cry. There were a few things I found annoying, but not majorly so. For me it's a pick, but I don't think I'll watch the movie.

I thought the characters never really fully developed. I felt a little disconnected. The storyline was good but it lacked depth to me. I did get a little teary in a couple of spots but it was a story that should‘ve taken me to full-on crying.

The character development was lacking, and anyone can figure out the ending within the first few pages of the book.

It's a book about a family meeting an accident. After which Mia's life changes forever and she has to make the most important decision about her life. It was a good, easy read for me. I've read reviews like "read it and weep", which didn't happen in my case. But this book is a pick!

“The #impact of a four-ton pickup truck going sixty miles an hour plowing straight into the passenger side had the force of an atom bomb. It tore off the doors, sent the front-side passenger seat through the driver‘s-side window. It flipped the chassis, bouncing it across the road and ripped the engine apart as if it were no stronger than a spiderweb. It tossed wheels and hubcaps deep into the forest.”

I give this a 5/10. It's not awful and the concept is really interesting but I feel the execution could've been better because I felt no connection to Mia and despite being an emotional reader, I didn't cry or physically react to any parts. Perhaps the movie is better in this case.

I respect others who adore this book but personally am a bit disappointed due to all of the good things I heard about it. Will not be picking up the sequel.

I read this after my client, a teenager, told me it was her favorite book, and I need to find common ground with her. This is very much an OMG-LIFEANDDEATH-FAMILYDRAMA-INTENSEBOYFRIEND YA book. My main beef is that the author spent way too much time making Mia‘s parents and friends so super cool you could die, but in a gross and typical American way that says your identity is the clothes that you wear and the media and products that you consume.

This. Book. Broke. Me. I devoured the audiobook in just a few days. Forman‘s knowledge of music and the way she weaves it into the writing of this book is breathtaking. In the last few minutes of the audiobook Mia talks about listening to a piece of music on an iPod that was so incredibly relatable to me I had to listen multiple times. I‘m going to have to purchase this one. Great book!!

I like the concept that the author portrayed. Although the novel is well-written and easy to understand, i don‘t entirely like the characters. The characters are hard to connect with. Perhaps it is just me, but I found it hard- nearly impossible- to connect with Mia, the main character. Although it isn‘t easy to connect with the characters,i would recommend the book as a quick read.although the book totals about 200 pages,it isn‘t agonizingly long

@BookaholicNatty I was having so much fun with my goodies that I forgot to post the 2nd photo! 😂😳

Thank you so much for everything! I love it all! The posters are super cool (I got the Goblet of Fire and Prisoner of Azkaban) and I can't wait to hang them up in my room! I especially love the journal and it, as well as If I Stay, will be a nice accompaniment to the long drive I have to take tomorrow!

Thank you for organizing!! #harrypotterswap

BookaholicNatty @ameliask8 I‘m sooo sooo happy you liked everything!!!! I had a blast shopping for you and could have kept going 😂😂😂 I adore Harry Potter!!! I was wondering what poster was in there! I hope you haven‘t read any of the books or own any of them!!! Happy Reading!!! ❤️❤️❤️ 14mo

'Just listen,' Adam says with a voice that sounds like shrapnel. 'Stay,' he says.
Everybody has to make choices. Some might break you.

A beautifully heartbreaking story of love and loss and hard choices. A real tear jerker, keep a stash of tissues nearby!
