I'd like to begin by saying that I LOVED that this story was told from Adam's P.O.V., it really helped the story.
The fact that Gayle Forman is amazing crossed my mind quite often as I tore through Where She Went. Her writing is beautiful and relatable, and I could NOT get enough.
There are times when I started to HATE Mia, but it never lasted long because of how well I'd gotten to know her in If I Stay. Which is why I have to say that you should read it first.
Overall, Where She Went was darn near perfect, but reading If I Stay first is a must. This is one of those stories that you think you've forgotten about, and then a little thing in life will remind you of it-- making you regret even THINKING of taking it from its rightful spot on your shelf. I doubt I'll read it again, but I'll probably flip through it a lot.
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.
