Recommend A Book…With A Blue Cover

13 Aug

If I Stay – Gayle Forman

Dutton Juvenile, April 2, 2009
Hardcover, 208 pages

Purchase from Amazon here: If I Stay (Paperback) or If I Stay (Kindle)

In a single moment, everything changes. Seventeen-year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall riding along the snow-wet Oregon road with her family. Then, in a blink, she finds herself watching as her own damaged body is taken from the wreck…


While the cover of this book has been re-issued and is no longer the bright blue of the posted cover, I did read the bright blue one, so it fits 😉 A lot of questions arose for me while I was reading this book – when faced with death and if you could make the decision to die or to live, what would you do? What if you were the only member of your family to survive – would that change your perception? I was pretty much in a blubbering mess as I was reading this. It wasn’t an overly difficult read, but a thought-provoking one.

    I agree- this book was super emotional, which I loved. In comparison, Where She Went fell kind of flat for me, but I still liked it:)

      i kind of enjoyed where she went more, because you got to see how the accident affected Adam…because so often it just focuses on the direct family and the individual and not necessarily others involved (if that makes sense…)
