It’s been three years since the devastating accident . . . three years since Mia walked out of Adam’s life forever.
Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Julliard’s rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia’s home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future-and each other.
Told from Adam’s point of view in the spare, lyrical prose that defined If I Stay, Where She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance.
Where She Went is the highly anticipated sequel to If I Stay by Gayle Forman. If you haven’t read If I Stay, stop now and look for my review!
Where She Went is just WOW! When I got to the last page, I immediately wanted more. Being told from Adam’s point of view, he takes us three years after the accident. The accident that took Mia’s family.
We find Adam and Mia living on opposite coasts and not even in contact with each other until a chance moment brings Adam face to face with Mia. Their reunion starts off awkward and uncomfortable until she breaks down in front of him about the loss of her family and he in turn does the same. It’s than that Mia realizes he lost family too and didn’t get a chance to grieve.
Adam also does a bit of soul searching during this brief stay in New York and comes to some life altering decisions.
Although I didn’t shed the tears like with If I Stay, the same emotions are there. Adam’s life, while being a rock star was his dream that dream included Mia. When Mia walked out of Adam’s life so did his dream. His voice throughout is strong but heartbreaking.
I hope to see a third book with Adam & Mia as their lives continue. Even thou the ending gives these powerful characters a bit of closure, it also opens a whole new door and as a reader I want more.
Forman knocks it out of the park with Where She Went.
