"Both brutal and beautiful, this thought-provoking story will stay with readers long after the last page is turned."
"The brilliance of...[IF I STAY] is the simplicity with which it captures the fundamental dilemma of adolescence: How does one separate from one's parents and forge an independent identity?"
From the Publisher
Annotation A 17-year-old girl named Mia must decide whether to fight for her life or surrender to death after she is badly injured in a car accident. Mia is able to watch as her body is tended to by paramedics and rushed to the hospital, and her observations of this process are interspersed with memories of her family and friends. Her thoughts wander from her love of classical music and the cello to her developing relationship with her boyfriend to the unspoken bonds she shares with her family, as Gayle Forman expertly weaves the tactile details of the hospital with Mia's ethereal assessment of what's important in her life. Selected by Publishers Weekly as one of the Best Children's Books of 2009.
Editors Note A critically acclaimed novel that will change the way you look at life, love, and family. || In the blink of an eye everything changes. Seventeen­year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall what happened afterwards, watching her own damaged body being taken from the wreck. Little by little she struggles to put together the pieces- to figure out what she has lost, what she has left, and the very difficult choice she must make. Heartwrenchingly beautiful, Mia's story will stay with you for a long, long time. ||
