Book Review: If I Stay - Gayle Forman

If I Stay (If I Stay #1)
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, Mia's story will stay with you for a long, long time.

3/5 stars (liked it)
This book consists of many small stories about the main character Mia.  It is basically her life flashing before her eyes and through that we get to know her, her family, her best friend Kim and her boyfriend.  All of these things factor into her final decision on whether to stay or go.  If she stays she will be an orphan and probably endure a tough life.  If she goes she might be re-united with her family.  Such a tough decision that I'm sure anyone would have a hard time deciding.  In this in-between state she is in she can watch the people she knows waiting for her to decide.  The ending was great and somewhat unexpected.
