If I stay

TEEN FOR17613215

Author – Gayle Forman

Age – 13+

Mia is happy when a light snowfall closes the schools and many businesses in their town in Oregon. They decide to go on a family day to Portland. Her boyfriend Adam is playing there that night in his up and coming rock-band. On the way, there is a terrible accident….

Mia tells the story from here in an out-of-body scenario, wandering the halls of the hospital watching her grieving grandparents, cousins, uncles and aunties, all wondering if she will survive.

Her memories of people in her lives complete the backstory and create the connections to the present.

This is the 1st in this series. I read this in one sitting.

Where she went is the sequel.
