If I Stay by Gayle Forman
If I stay is one of those books that will keep you up unti 2:00 a.m. reading. The main character, Mia, barely survives a terrible car accident where her entire family is killed. The book follows her journey in a sort of "in between" life and death where she has the power to decide whether she will stay or die. During this out of body experiance, MIa is able to observe her hospital visitors and their grief. She is torn between her boyfriend, Adam, who wants her to live- and the thought of living in a world without her parents or little brother. The story, told between present day and
flashbacks, allows you to fall in love with Mia and her family. HIGHLY RECCOMENDED!
