Format: Paperback
Literally 5 minutes after finishing 'If I Stay" I rushed over to my local bookstore and picked up a copy of this book. Admittedly when I bought it I didn't read the synopsis and therefore wasn't aware that this book was told in Adam's POV therefore for a few chapters I was a bit thrown, but quickly adjusted to his voice. I found Adam's voice to be so raw, real, genuine, and a bajillion other adjectives of that nature. I had chills the entire time while reading this book due to him and his honestly.

While I did have a bit of difficulty connecting to Mia in this book, as I had in "If I Stay", feeling that she wasn't quite a developed as I would have liked, I did have a bit of an easier time in this book which I think can be attributed to Adam's perspective of her. Furthermore, the secondary characters of this series made more of an impact on me in this book than they had in "If I Stay"- from Liz to Kim to beyond.

That being said, while in "If I Stay" I really enjoyed the flashbacks as it allowed us to garner a better insight of Mia and Adam's relationship, I found myself growing increasingly frustrated with them in this book- I wanted to know what was happening with Mia and Adam in the here-and-now and not Mia and Adam of the past (similarly to how I felt in Laini Taylor's "Daughter of Smoke and Bone" with Akiva and Karou's relationship). However, I felt that the song lyrics which preceded some of the chapters more than made up for the iffy flashbacks and brought a certain je ne sais quoi to the book.

Format: Hardcover
About three years ago, Mia and Adam went their separate ways - Mia off to Julliard and Adam off to live the life of a rock star.

Adam is about to start a European tour with Shooting Star. Since heading off on his own, he has attempted to push aside the emotions he still feels for Mia. Doing so has created a whole new set of problems. Adam is becoming cut off from his fellow band members, and the resulting pressure is becoming more than he can take. His days are filled with annoying interviews, meetings, and rehearsals that he only manages to get through with the help of prescription drugs and cigarettes. His equally famous girlfriend constantly berates him about living with a ghost from his past.

In New York City for a brief interview before leaving for the tour, Adam has an angry outburst due to questions from a nosy interviewer. Knowing he won't be popular, he takes off, avoiding his flight and, hopefully, the anger of his manager. His thoughts are filled with Mia, and when he stumbles across her name on the marquee for a Youth Concert series, he asks if any tickets remain. Fate intervenes and he finds himself sitting in the concert hall watching her perform.

After the concert he plans to slink back to his hotel and attempt to make up for his earlier bad behavior by contacting his manager. But on his way out of the concert hall, Adam is approached by an usher, asking him to follow him to Mia's dressing room.

What follows is a twenty-four-hour period of emotional ups and downs as both Adam and Mia confront the demons surrounding their complicated relationship. Adam relives the terrible months of watching Mia struggle to recover from the accident that killed her parents and her little brother. He knows he is the reason why Mia left.

Format: Hardcover
To follow up a book as heartfelt as "If I Stay" was a challenge in my eyes. However when I read "Where She Went" I was not only incredibly impressed but also touched by the way the author showed and expressed grief to a teen reader that would appeal and compel them to read the rest of the story. These two novels are a great showcase of values, growth and strength and should be on every families bookshelf.

Wonderful novel.

I was heart-broken; not myself anymore. But either way, Where She Went changed me… for the second time. And the second time was even better than the first.

“So, this is how it’s become? This is what I’ve become? A walking contradiction? I’m surrounded by people and feel alone. I claim to crave a bit a normalcy but now that I have some, it’s like I don’t know what to do with it, don’t know how to be a normal person anymore.”

Oh, Adam. :'(

From this experience with re-reading this sequel after watching the movie for the first book, I am lost without words. Gayle Forman has broken my heart, and for sure has shattered others’s as well. When a beautiful male fictional character is broken-hearted, readers tend to be too. And I just didn’t know what to do to calm myself and believe that everything will be okay.

This time around, I paid attention to the feelings. I never loved Adam that much as I do now, and when Jamie Blackley played him in the movie for the previous novel, he became my dream man. He acted perfectly like him, and after that bawling-experience, I just wanted to remember and go on with the characters’s lives and continue on with their story.

“I look at her there in the shadows of the shut-down city, her hair falling onto her face, and I can see her trying to figure out if I’ve lost it. And I have to fight the urge to take her by the shoulders and slam her against a shuttered building until we feel the vibrations ringing through both of us. Because I suddenly want to hear her bones rattle.”

As you may know, the movie/first book left us off at a horrifying cliffhanger. Many people complained that they didn’t know what happened next. I guess that’s the magic of novels, right?
