If I Stay

4374400Goodreads Synopsis:    Just listen, Adam says with a voice that sounds like shrapnel.

I open my eyes wide now.
I sit up as much as I can.
And I listen.

Stay, he says.

Choices. Seventeen-year-old Mia is faced with some tough ones: Stay true to her first love—music—even if it means losing her boyfriend and leaving her family and friends behind?

Then one February morning Mia goes for a drive with her family, and in an instant, everything changes. Suddenly, all the choices are gone, except one. And it's the only one that matters.

If I Stay is a heartachingly beautiful book about the power of love, the true meaning of family, and the choices we all make.

My Thoughts:

-    It started out good, but it lost my interest about halfway through.

-    The story reminds of Just Like Heaven with Reese Witherspoon.

-    I really struggled with the last 20 pages. I just wanted to know if she lived or not. I got tired of all the back story stuff. I wanted more about what was happening in the present.

-    I love that the main character was a cellist. I related to all her musical aspirations and fears.

-    The book moved too slow for me. It was pretty boring.
