If I Stay by Gayle Forman - review
If I Stay follows the story of seventeen year old Mia Hall who is extremely talented at playing the cello and has to make a huge decision: whether to pursue her dreams and go to Julliard and leave her family and her beloved boyfriend, Adam behind or not. However, the story takes a turn for the worst when Mia and her family get into a devastating car crash which immediately kills all of Mia's family apart from Mia, who is in a coma. The rest of the story then follows her out-of-body experience where she has to make the biggest decision of all: to wake up and be reunited with Adam or die and join her family in the afterlife. I have to admit, this story was immensely devastating but I loved it all the same. What I loved the most was the originality of it; I mean, it takes real talent to really think outside the box like the author has. It really made me wonder what coma patients must be going through while there are in a coma, whether or not they actually know what is going on and whether or not they can decide to wake up.
If I Stay is a American teen romantic drama film directed by R. Cutler and based on the novel of the same name by Gayle Forman.
