Where She Went by Gayle Forman
I raced through this book so quickly and really liked it a lot. I remember If I Stay - it was amazing! I loved every moment of the first book. Where She Went doesn't disappoint either. I don't want to say too much about the book, since people might not have read the first one, but I can tell you that this book is from the point of view of Adam, Mia's boyfriend. He fills the reader in on the aftermath of Mia's accident and what has been happening since then. I raced through this book so quickly. I really loved Adam's character and voice. I enjoyed learning about the other characters from the first book and what had happened to them, too. I also like reading about what Adam was feeling and going through, because while Mia and her immediate family were obviously most affected by the accident, tragedies impact everyone involved. Adam was a part of what happened, too. This book was great. If you haven't read the first one, you should pick both up today. Cover comment: I hate that there is a girl on the front of this book. It won't appeal to boys at all because of this....at least not at first glance. I get that it matches the new paperback, but I think guys would like this book and even the first one...wish more books came with covers that appealed to both genders.
