Where She Went - Gayle Forman

Posted by on October 3, 2011

Synopsis: 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.

Review: Following on three years later from where “If I Stay” finished off, this story is told from Adam’s perspective. In the three years since Mia came out of her coma, Adam’s life has been feeled with heartbreak. Mia moved to New York and stopped talking to him. He is still in the band Shooting Star, they are now famous around the world and have won themselves Grammys. His girlfriend is a movie star. But he still feels like a shell of his former self.

So when Adam and Mia’s paths cross in New York City, neither of them know what to say to one another. What’s left to say? They spend one night walking around New York City where Adam tries to get answers to some of the questions he has been burning to ask Mia all this time. Namely why did she stop talking to him?

Such a beautifully written book, I actually liked this one more than If I Stay, however one would not be the same without the other, so really - these two books together make for one beautifully tragic story. Two these books have easily become two of my favourite books (amongst others!).

Buy a copy. This one is a keeper!

    I should really read If I Stay soon. I have had it at home for months now and everyone’s been telling me to read it.
