If I Stay #1
From Goodreads: 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...
A sophisticated, layered, and heartachingly beautiful story about the power of family and friends, the choices we all make -and the ultimate choice Mia commands.
I have no words to describe this book. If you read the blurb it really doesn't sound very exciting, but it's one of the best, most emotional books I've read recently. Forman does a great job showcasing Mia's life through her memories while she wanders the hospital. This book flows so well, and I was never at all confused about the timeline, which is impressive because it jumps around a lot.
I absolutely loved Mia's family and friends, which almost made the story even more heartrending. Everything about this book was spectacular, and I'm going to stop talking now so you can go out and read it. Seriously. Do it. Now. You won't regret it.
