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.

My Thoughts:

I listened to If I Stay and loved it and was very stoked to find out I would get a chance to review this book. I'm so glad I did. I loved this one just as much.

There is something about Gayle's writing that tugs at my heartstrings. I read this book in one day. It was that good. The first book I grieved and cried for Mia and in this book my heart broke for Adam. I am glad I got to witness their story. I say witness because that is how it felt as I was reading it. I felt like I was eavesdropping on it but couldn't look away lol.

I don't want to say too much for fear of giving stuff away so I'll just leave you with this thought. If you enjoyed If I stay, you will love Where She Went. If you haven't read If I Stay, then go get it and read it, so you can buy Where She Went when it releases.
