Description

SOON TO BE A MAJOR FILM STARRING CHLOE GRACE MORETZ Just listen,' Adam says with a voice that sounds like shrapnel. I open my eyes wide now. I sit up as much as I can. And I listen. 'Stay,' he says. 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. Gripping, heartrending and ultimately life-affirming, If I Stay will make you appreciate all that you have, all that you've lost - and all that might be.

Review quote

"This sensitively written story of the power of love and loss presses all the right buttons . . . The intensity of feelings and tragic suddenness with which life changes will strike a chord with teenagers and the young at heart. Read it, as they say, and weep" * Daily Mail * "This is a wonderful, beautiful book; so gripping, so wise and oh, so heart-breakingly painful" -- Carmen Reid "A compulsive read" -- Jacqueline Wilson "This is a haunting and heartbreaking novel reminiscent of The Lovely Bones . . . Impossible to put down" -- Sue Steel * Bookseller * "For the first few pages, If I Stay comes across like a light hearted story about a teenager, her love life and her kooky family, but from the moment Forman hits you with the devastatingly detached description of the aftermath of the crash, you know you've picked up something special" * The Bookbag *show more

Isn't the same front cover.show more
by Elena López Moreno
Heartbreaking. There�?�¢??s no other word for IF I STAY. It�?�¢??s written so simply yet the rawness is there. The story is beautiful and sad. It�?�¢??s not trying hard to be anything. Nothing felt forced in it. The words are smooth and simple, but they will pierce your heart. I loved everything about this book - the music, the love, the passion, even the pain. I love how cool the characters are. I love the awkward relationship between Mia and Adam. I love that Mia�?�¢??s parents are so amazing. I love Kim because she�?�¢??s true and honest. I love Willow because she�?�¢??s a lot like Mia�?�¢??s mom �?�¢?? tender but feisty. I love Mia�?�¢??s Gramps because he understands. I love Adam because even though Mia is insecure and doesn�?�¢??t feel like she deserves him, he�?�¢??s crazy in love with her. And I love that this book made me cry a lot because it�?�¢??s freaking beautiful and moving and tragic that I wouldn�?�¢??t want to read it again anytime soon because it will definitely break my heart all over again.show more

A book of love, loss and how to decided between the two. A moving book brought me to tears and made me laugh. It makes you really cherise what you have and think about what you would do in the same situation.show more
