While in a coma following an automobile accident that killed her parents and younger brother, seventeen-year-old Mia, a gifted cellist, weights whether to live with her grief or join her family in death.
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.

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.
