Review: Where She Went (If I Stay #2) by Gayle Forman

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 Juilliard'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.

I don't easily give out 4 stars, but this book deserved no less. In sequels, I usually don't like when author's switch the point of view in which the story is being told, but I loved reading Where She Went from Adam's perspective. This book picks up years following the tragedy of If I Stay. Adam and Mia have gone their separate ways, but Adam can't seem to separate his heart from the girl he almost lost. The author's talent to maintain the flow and transition of the storyline with the multiple flashbacks (which I also usually don't like either) was very mpressive. You get to see what Adam went through on that horrible day in If I Stay. It's an emotional rollercoaster that is so beautifully written. You'll laugh, cry, and continue turning the pages until it's done. If you loved If I Stay, you will love this book even more. The romance will captivate you from start to finish.
