If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Reviewed by H. Walters, May 2018

I read the book If I Stay by Gayle Forman. Mia has a happy life, she has a loving boyfriend, good friends, and a wonderful family. Mia is about to leave for college, when something bad happens to her and her family. She has an out of body experience and tries to decide what to chose. She can either choose her true love, but leave her family behind, or she can choose her family and leave her true love and friends behind. The book is not particularly graphic, but the language is for older kids. So I recommend it for probably 8th graders and up, because of the emotional content. If you like romance books, like Nicholas Sparks books, you may like this book, for it´s romance.
