Book Description

April 5 2011
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 Juilliard'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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional Sequel. July 9 2011
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first! June 24 2012
By Avery Greaves TOP 500 REVIEWER
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Courtesy of Teens Read Too Sept. 23 2011
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! Sept. 6 2011
By J. Scully TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Adam Wilde is living the dream. His band is about to start the biggest tour of their career, their albums have gone triple platinum and he's half of the hottest celebrity couple around. The interviews, videos and recording sessions should be the icing on the cake, but for the "Wilde Man" they're torture. No matter how many pills he takes or cigarettes he smokes, the dream still feels like a nightmare. No one understands why the man who has it all acts like he's in hell. He knows what went wrong, but there's nothing Adam can do to make himself enjoy the life he always thought he wanted. Because it was a dream they made together, and it doesn't make him happy without her. But one day when fate intervenes, Adam finally finds the answers he has been searching for.

Even though "Where She Went" is a follow-up to Mia's story in "If I Stay", I think Adam's tale will be just as enjoyable for those who haven't read the first book. Gayle Forman has an incredible ability to write characters that almost leap off the page they feel so real.

Adam's story unfolds in both real-time and through flashbacks, but the two work together seamlessly to fill in the details of the past three years without ever felling jumpy or hard to follow. I really have no complaints with Where She Went. The characters are wonderful, the pacing is perfect and the story answers all the questions that readers are left with after "If I Stay". The only reason I gave this book one less star than "If I Stay" was that it didn't quite pack the emotional punch that Mia's side of the story did. But I think that's a result of reading these two books back-to-back, rather than there being anything lacking in "Where She Went".
