Fantastic Follow Up
Where She Went by Gayle Forman is the sequel to her If I Stay.
It's been three years since Mia walked out of Adam's Life.
And three years he's spent wondering why.
When their paths cross again in New York City, Adam and Mia are brought back together for one life-changing night.
Adam finally has the opportunity to ask Mia the questions that have been haunting him. But will a few hours in this magical city be enough to lay their past to rest, for good- or can you really have a second chance at first love?
1. This book is so heartbreaking beautiful. It is the perfect sequel for If I Stay. I was definitely on the verge of tear more than once.
2. While If I Stay dealt with Mia's choices and grief, this book really explores Adam more as a character, and how he dealt with not only the loss of Mia, but the loss of her family as well. Forman does such an excellent job at exploring human emotions that it makes her characters easy to connect with.
3. Plus Adam and Mia's tour through NYC gives a different side than the usual tourist glitz and glamour, and makes me want to go back to New York to see the hidden gems that are there.
4. Did I mention that the writing has almost a lyrical flow to it, and it really emphasizes that her main characters' musical qualities.
