Where She Went by Gayle Forman and Giveaway

If you haven't read If I Stay this contains spoilers.

Where She Went (If I Stay, #2)

Where She Went
Author:  Gayle Forman
Genre:  YA
Publisher: Dutton Juvenile
Expected Publication:  April 5th 2011

From Goodreads: 

It's been three years since the devastating accident ... three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever.

Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Julliard's rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future - and each other.

Told from Adam's point of view in the spare, lyrical prose that defined If I Stay, Where She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance.


Where She Went is the sequel to If I Stay, though it wasn’t as good as If I Stay I thought it was still worth a read if you are a fan of If I Stay.

Where She Went  takes place three years after Mia’s tragic accident.  It’s told in Adam’s point of view, which was a little of a shocker to me, but was really a great decision on Gayle Forman’s part.  We know what Mia was feeling in If I Stay, and now it’s great to know what Adam was feeling and is feeling now 3 years later. 

Adam didn’t make a strong impression in the first book, but in all honestly none of the characters did, but Where She Went changed that for me with Adam.  I was able to see a piece of him, and exactly how he felt, and feels about Mia.  Adam is definitely is a good catch. 

I didn’t enjoy it more than If I Stay, though.  Like I mention in my If I Stay review Mia is really hard character to enjoy for me.  After a while I was tired of seeing Adam put Mia on a glass shelf admiring her.  I don’t know it’s really hard to explain my discomfort for Mia, and  I was able to overlook that in If I Stay because of the plot, I wasn’t this turn around.

Though Where She Went fell short for me, I’m sure that fans of If I Stay will love the continuation of Adam and Mia’s story. 


Since Where She Went is a hot commodity I’m going to giveaway my ARC copy.
