Recently, I read Where She Went by Gayle Forman and I have to say that I read it all in one day. I can’t remember the last time I did that! But once in a while there is a story that grabs you and pulls you in so fully that you simply cannot put the book down. You just read and read until you finally find yourself at the end of the book… and well past your bedtime. Where She Went is one of those books.
The story is the much anticipated sequel to If I Stay, Adam and Mia’s love story. But this time the story is told from Adam’s point of view. The story follows his journey in a series of flashbacks with Mia and without, his struggle with his band, and who they are. Most importantly the anger that Adam is dealing with over Mia’s quick dismissal of him while she was away at college.
It was by chance that the two of them met up again and finally had the conversations that they never had.
One of my favorite lines for book is this:
“You know. I thought about that a lot these last couple of years,” she said in a chocked voice. “About who was there for you. Who held your hand while you grieved for all that you’d lost?”
This is a story of love lost and found. One that will have you smiling one moment and in tears another. One that you simply won’t be able to put down once you start it.
