[Review] If I Stay - Gayle Forman

If I Stay
by Gayle Forman
read on: May 6, 2010

What compelled me to pick up this book more than the praise If I Stay has received was the brilliant premise. Some may regard it as a fantasy but I suppose we can not know what it is like to be in a coma. Plus, the family dynamic seems more far-fetched to me since it is so far from the families I know (though I know there are parents out there like that).

{The Premise}

If I Stay
is focused on a teen cellist, Mia, who winds up in a coma when her parents are killed instantly and her younger brother is found in critical condition all due to a car accident. This is the story of Mia's life-altering - literally - decision of whether or not to stay in the world of the living or perhaps find her parents in whatever afterlife may be.
