Goodreads Summary: In the blink of an eye everything changes. Seventeen-year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall what happened afterwards, watching her own damaged body being taken from the wreck. Little by little she struggles to put together the pieces- to figure out what she has lost, what she has left, and the very difficult choice she must make. Heartwrenchingly beautiful, this will change the way you look at life, love, and family. '

If I Stay is a book about making choices and deciding who you're family really is. The book is about a teenager called Mia, who gets into a accident with her family and leads her to make a choice. As Mia is in her coma, she has an out of body experience and watches all of her friends and family cope with the grief of losing her parents and little brother and relives all of the mundane moments that don't seem important at the time, but ultimately help her make the decision to stay or let go and be with her parents.

If I Stay makes you think about what you would do if you were put in her situation. Would you stay or would you go?

I'm sorry that today's book review is so short, Friday's review will hopefully be longer, but I am in quite a bit of a reading slump. Today's review was going to be Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson and the Titan's Curse, but I went into serious revision mode 1/3 of the way into the book and since I've had no desire to pick up that or any other book. Hopefully now that I've got through this one, I will be able to get through my TBR pile (which includes Red Queen and A Court of Thorns and Roses).
Please check me out on my Twitter, Goodreads and Instagram for more on what I am reading.
