If I Stay by Gayle Forman
If I Stay

Livviajo, January 1, 2012

When I picked up this book, I figured it would be a simple read, something that wouldn't take alot of brain effort. I figured it would be a book about romance, and yadda yadda. But as I began to read this tale, the ink-words began to string together into a painting, a play, a full blown movie. Every word is beautiful in this novel, and like my own, the family in this book is a funny collection of characters who stick by one another even if things get awkward, weird, or even painful. I began to view Mia (the main character) as myself, I began to put myself in her position. What would I do if that happened to me? Would I choose to go with my family who are literally imprinted on my heart? Or move forward and experience life, and leave my family behind? All I can say, is near the end of this tale, my heart was racing, and I was begging for more chapters.
