MakeSimultaneously tragic and hopeful this is a romantic riveting and ultimately uplifting story about memory music living and dying Librarian note an alternate cover for this edition can be found her I was actually uite shocked to find that this book did not even make me shed one tear Weird huhUnless you count tears of boredom Other people THIS BOOK OMG THE FEELS I’M SOBBING UNCONTROLLABLY Me Wait where was the part where I was supposed to cryDespite what you’re probably thinking I did not base this review on whether or not I would cry I gave it two stars because it did not affect me in any way Rather it bored me Other than the fact that I was bored to tears I had several major issues with If I StayFor one I failed to empathize with a vast majority of the characters The connection just wasn't there slightly contributing to my disliking of this book Identifying with characters is extremely important for me as a reader especially with these types of books I did not appreciate Mia’s emotionless voice which I know was deliberate on the author’s part because it did not fit this sort of story The characters in this book were much too perfect It was palpable from that first view spoiler and only hide spoiler

If I StayFrom her Caught between life and death between a happy past and an unknowable future Mia spends one critical day contemplating the one decision she has left the most important decision she’ll ever In a single moment everything changes Seventeen year old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall riding along the snow wet Oregon road with her family Then in a blink she finds herself watching as her own damaged body is taken from the wreck A sophisticated layered and heartachingly beautiful story about the power of family and friends the choices we all make and the ultimate choice Mia commands WHY I DROPPED ITI didn't like the book I just thought it was completely useless Nothing was really sad except times where Mia had to choose between stayinggoing etc And the plot didn't hold my attention mainly because there wasn't much of a plot in first placeI was a little reluctant to admit I didn't like it in first place Mainly because so many people loved it I felt as if I was bursting their bubble But as time moves forward a lot of people didn't like it either So I'm not aloneBut before you completely screech at me for not liking such a brilliant book I have my reasons Mia is too dull for my liking Sure she likes music and it's supposed to set her apart from the rest of the world Nuh ah It doesn't work like that She's as ordinarysimple as possible There isn't much of a plot Just a girl wondering if she'd rather die or stay Maybe for a lot of you it's a wonderful plot Not for me Sorry but recounting isn't my thing Which brings me to the third point This story is the wrong story which is being written As a writer I worship the rule If you have to add a lot of back story to make your book understandable then you're telling the wrong story I agree This book is just memories stringed together Maybe I'm the only one who has a problem with this if so forgive me But I really really didn't like this Oh and as for Adam I didn't like him much either He seemed the usual dark type And one of the things I really hate in romance is when I can't see why the boy and the girl fall for each other I do understand they both have the passion for music but so many other people dorant overComment all you like My mind's not going to change Sorry
