If I Stay - Gayle Forman
Recommended for: Anyone who is looking for a short and simple yet beautiful contemporary novel.
Read from May 26 to June 11, 2014 — I own a copy

Okay so this novel was beautifully simplistic. I was intrigued by the storyline as I have never read a novel like it. I'm glad I read it because although it was quite simple, I still enjoyed the beauty of the story.

****SPOILER alert!*****


I truly truly enjoyed the way the novel ended! The reader can assume she stayed, but at the same time it's mostly implied since it's never truly said--and I love that!

(show spoiler)

Although it could at some points be a little bothersome how the novel is written -- it constantly goes back in time -- I enjoyed it since there would be something that happened "currently", and then Mia would flashback to an event that would connect to the current situation. I thought it was interesting to read.

So yay for another great young adult novel. I'm excited to read more of Gayle Forman's work!
