If I Stay

The movie version is coming out soon.


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.


Interesting book but tends to get a little confusing


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


I love this book!


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!
