Book Review: If I Stay

                                                              If I Stay Review
If I Stay is about a seventeen year old named Mia who ends up in a car crash that sends her into a coma but kills the rest of her family. Mia spends the book deciding whether or not she wants to wake up and live in a world without her family while she watches her friends, boyfriend and her grandparents worry about her possibly dying. There are many flashbacks to Mia's life before the coma which shows us how close Mia was to her family and why it's so hard for her to decide to live while knowing that they won't be there. There are also quite a few flashbacks to Mia's relationship with her boyfriend Adam who is a big part of why she's not sure if she wants go despite her grief that is equally important to her decision making process as her family is. This book does a good job at making us feel for Mia and also fleshing out all the characters that are part of Mia's life which is what makes this book as good as it is.

This book is one where not a whole lot happens in this book plot wise but the characters and their emotions are engaging enough that it really doesn't take away from the book but it does leave me with not much to say about the book. This book is good, it had good characters and ended up making me emotional invested in characters that die at the beginning. Please tell me your thoughts on this book in the comment section below.
