If I Stay

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.
My Thoughts
This book was great! Let me get right into it. THe first thing this reminded me of is when a person says they see their life flash before their eyes.  Mia has all these flashbacks of the past with her family. Let me start off saying that is so sad the way the accident happened. With this book you see Mia struggle with the ultimate decision to stay and live or to go  leave the world and die. You can see her emotions with the death of her family. You also deal with the emotions of her family and friends and how they are dealing with her being in  a coma.  I like that you get glimpses of her and Adam's relationships and their relatioship problems. The ending was what i hoped would happen. Its a great book and i enjoyed it and was a very quick read.
