I'm going to get back to this book. It's beautiful and touching, and I'm curious as to how it will all end or not end for the protaganist. ( )

At first I was doubtful about If I Stay, figuring it was going to be some overwrought teenage melodrama. (The moody cover with the girl on it didn't help.) Boy was I wrong – it turned out to be this lyrical, deeply moving book about life, death, and love.

This is a very introspective novel with little to no plot. Mia’s body was seriously injured in a car accident, but her essence seems to be hovering in limbo. She will have to decide whether she wants to live or quietly slip away. While she considers her choice, Mia observes the various people gathered at the hospital, and she looks back on her relationships with her family, her friends, and her boyfriend, none of which will ever be the same.

I was afraid that Mia’s main concern would be TEH BOYFRIEND, but I was pleasantly surprised. He does play a large role – he is Mia’s first love, after all – but equal import is placed on her mother, her father, her younger brother, her best friend, her grandparents, even music. Gayle Forman is a master at crafting wonderful vignettes – Mia’s first date with Adam, the birth of her brother, a day in Portland with her grandfather - that showcase all the love in her life. You feel punched in the gut because Mia will never see some of these people again. But you also hope that she will realize that she has so much to stay for, despite all that she has lost.

Four (and possibly a half) stars. ( )

If I Stay was my first Gayle Forman book and I can see why she's got such a following. If I Stay has been sitting in my TBR pile for quite some time. I'm doing this new thing where I read the books that I want to read when I want to read them. I thought I'd pick this one up because everyone loves Gayle Forman and because the movie trailer really made me want to pick this one up.

Folks this one got real fast. I think about page 16 and we were right in the thick of it. I think one of the most surprising things for me is that If I Stay is such a slim novel. I didn't expect such an emotional impact. In 200 pages, there was quite a bit of history for Mia. It was sort of fascinating because Mia has an uncertain future. What Forman does is throws you into the story at the middle point and then alternately show you glimpses of the past and then bits of the present. This form of storytelling made it all the more gut wrenchingly awful and yet so bittersweet.

I really enjoyed Mia's character. I felt that she knew what she wanted and for the most part followed through to get it. Mia is a down to earth girl who was realistic and is the type of girl I'd want for a role model if I had a daughter. I have to admit that I really didn't care for Adam. Until that one part when I fell in love with him a little bit because he was swoony. If you've read the book you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't I'm not telling!

Personally the best way to describe If I Stay is you're wrapped in a cozy cocoon of shock until the band aid is ripped off viciously and the tears and snot run freely. In a sick and twisted way I loved it. I'll definitely be catching up with Forman's back list! ( )

If you want a story that really grabs at your heart this is perfect. Mia is a teenager who plays cello which comes almost natural to her. She even auditioned for Julliard . I really should have read this one at a better time than on a road trip. Considering the first chapter puts you right into a horrific car crash after a great morning with her family trying to decide what to do on their snow day. When I grabed this book I kind of just scimmed through it not really knowing what I was really in store for. During the car crash scene I had to stop several times because of the gore and pain I felt reading this. Of course I don't think it help stoping either for a while because every time my husband had to change lanes i was cringing inside, I'm just glad it wasn't snowing. I had to get back into the story because I just had to know what was going to happen to Mia.
The parnormal effect in this book was perfect, She was an apparition standing in the whole time looking over her life from the outside looking in. She was in a coma and heard everything but was unable to do anything. She had to decide whether to go with her family she lost or stay with the ones left be hide. Every character in this story I loved from the quite grandfather to the punk rocker boyfriend. I loved the flash backs of her family they made the book even more enjoyable. This story had me on the verge of tears several times. I was begging Mia to just stay the whole time. If this happen to me I think I would have a really hard time choosing. I will be reading this one over and over again!
 
Via Mia's thoughts and flashbacks, Forman (Sisters in Sanity) expertly explores the teenager's life, her passion for classical music and her strong relationships with her family, friends and boyfriend, Adam. Mia's singular perspective (which will recall Alice Sebold's adult novel, The Lovely Bones) also allows for powerful portraits of her friends and family as they cope: Please don't die. If you die, there's going to be one of those cheesy Princess Diana memorials at school, prays Mia's friend Kim. I know you'd hate that kind of thing. Intensely moving, the novel will force readers to take stock of their lives and the people and things that make them worth living.
