Review: Where She Went

Title: Where She Went
Series: If I Stay # 2
Genre: Young Adult-Contemporary
Author: Gayle Forman
Publisher: Dutton
Release Date: April 5, 2011
Book: Bought

"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."

 I cried. My heart broke and came back together again. I loved reading every single word of this book. There is so much emotions and unspoken regrets that punches you in the stomach.  The story is captivating from the very beginning, never letting you go. 
Adam and Mia are both great characters with much  history and love. The story was great as it was being told from Adam's point of view. I loved getting inside his heart and his head. I loved watching Mia as she is now. So much has happened in the past few years that to be able to see it all come together was genius.

What else can I say that hasn't already been said? This book is simply divine all the way through. If you have not picked up this book you should. It will break you heart like no other book has before, but if will also leave you smiling.

Ms. Forman wrote an unforgettable, undeniably, perfect book. It was perfect. The writing, the plot, and both amazing characters had my eyes running with tears and a heart yearning for love.

There was some minor cursing  and a sex scene (vague).

I give it 5 BITES!

Happy Reading!

    I actually loved this one a little less than If I Stay. I liked it, but I just loved If I Stay soooo much, and also I kinda hated Mia at times in this one. lol!
