Staff Reviews


Following a car crash that killed her whole family, a comatose but lucid Mia must make a choice she never expected: live in the wake of this tragedy, or let go. This unbelievably moving novel is the one I credit for getting me into YA literature. *bring tissues! — Paige Mushaw

Mia has it all. She is close to her family, has a great boyfriend, and her future is ahead of her. Then, one winter afternoon, Mia watches as her body is placed into the ambulance. Caught someplace between living and death, Mia must look at her life and answer, "Do I go? Or do I stay?" Powerful, emotional, and even hopeful. — Jeanette

Description


The critically acclaimed, bestselling novel from Gayle Forman, author of Where She WentJust One Day, and Just One Year.
 
Soon to be a major motion picture, starring Chloe Moretz!
 
In the blink of an eye everything changes. Seventeen ­year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall what happened afterwards, watching her own damaged body being taken from the wreck. Little by little she struggles to put together the pieces- to figure out what she has lost, what she has left, and the very difficult choice she must make. Heartwrenchingly beautiful, this will change the way you look at life, love, and family. Now a major motion picture starring Chloe Grace Moretz, Mia's story will stay with you for a long, long time.
