Ending Was Disappointing!

Thinking that I had at least 35 pages left of the book, it suddenly ended and the next page was "Acknowledgements". I was taken aback. It just didn't feel finished to me. However, reading further I learned of a sequel....which may or may not be good. I hate it when characters spend their time inexplicably running from someone they love. That's how the excerpts of the sequel read to me.

If I Stay

The movie version is coming out soon.

GREAT

Great book, highly recommended

If it finished some other way

I liked the premise of the book but was ultimately disappointed with its ending.

I was hoping for some kind of a twist but it ended up predictably, basically surmounting to 'love conquers death,' which I thought was not only cliche but also unconvincing as Mia's love for Adam did not strike me as genuine.

I felt like the book would have been much stronger if Mia had made the decision to *spoiler alert* stay on her own, without Adam or the power of music, acknowledging that despite her loss and pain, life was still worth fighting for.

Good

Interesting book but tends to get a little confusing

Okay

This is a interesting idea, but it's a little confusing a times.

good

I love this book!

Amazing

This book was recommended to me by a friend. I usually can't handle very sad books, but this one was beautifully written and well-done. I look forward to reading the sequel, Where She Went!

Really Good!

I loved this book! I finished it really quickly, and I can't wait to read the sequel!
