If I Stay - Gayle Forman

A critically acclaimed novel that will change the way you look at life, love, and family.

In the blink of an eye everything changes. Seventeen year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall what happened afterwards, watching her own damaged body being taken from the wreck. Little by little she struggles to put together pieces - to figure out what she has lost, what she has left, and the very difficult choices she must make. Heartwrenchingly beautiful, Mia's story will stay with you for a long, long time.

I had a hard time trying not to cry while reading this book. I loved the plot and the characters very much, except maybe for the protagonist. I was really hoping that she see all the love that she'll get when she does decide to come back. I was beginning to think of her as selfish when she weights her options on coming back to life.

A tragedy like that does not need to happen to a teenage girl (or anybody else) but one thing we must learn is to stay strong through trials. This book has thought me that it can be hard but doable.

This also thought me to never take anyone for granted. Even though you might think that you have nobody, you'll be surprised by the people who really care for you and love you.
