If I Stay… a heart broken means nothing apparently.

Choices. Seventeen-year-old Mia is faced with some tough ones: Stay true to her first love—music—even if it means losing her boyfriend and leaving her family and friends behind? Then one February morning Mia goes for a drive with her family, and in an instant, everything changes. Suddenly, all the choices are gone, except one. And it’s the only one that matters.

9/10 – LOVED this book even if it broke my heart!!

What I liked about it; I liked the whole of this story and the use of choices to add to the idea that she was faced with this massive decision whilst also dealing with massive loss and grief. I liked the other characters other than Mia and I thought that their relationships were so believable and likeable.

What I loved about it; I loved the flashbacks, and the memories, these were so well integrated that it felt natural and wasn’t over done. I loved the fact that Mia’s and Adam’s relationship wasn’t perfect and they hit the ‘awkward phase’ as well. It made them feel more like real people to me and made me like them more and more as characters.

What I disliked about it; I really didn’t like the way that Adam made such a scene at the hospital, I thought it was ridiculous and totally unrealistic.I thought it definitely took something away from the sadness of the book.

What I hated about it; I hated the ending. I wish it would have ended unknown and have the second book tell me what had happened, but that was my only complaint.

What did I read next?; So that is the end of my TBR and I had to find something else to read on my kindle, I decided on Winger by Andrew Smith.
