Where She Went ~ A Blogher Book Club Review

I’ll admit that I wasn’t particularly interested in reading Where She Went by Gayle Forman. The book is a sequel to her bestseller, If I Stay, and seeing as I hadn’t read that book I didn’t feel that I’d know the characters as well as I should going into Where She Went. I’ll admit that for the first few chapters I felt like I was reading a book geared towards young adults/teens and I had a hard time feeling it. However, when the main character, Adam, meets his lost love, Mia, by chance and they go on a whirlwind tour of New York in one night I was hooked. I’m a sucker for life changing in a moment stories and there was certainly enough flashbacks and memories to make this book a suitable stand alone novel for those that haven’t read the first (though, I intend to look for If I Stay at my local library). I really felt for Adam as he struggles though the novel and I desperately wanted things to work out for him, for him to get what he needed. He’s messed up and I wanted it better for him. I won’t tell you how it ends but will say that once I started I HAD to read this book in it’s entirety. I highly recomend it and would love for you to check it out for yourself and for you to check out this month discussions on the Blogher Book Club as well.
