In a single moment, everything changes. Seventeenyear- old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall riding along the snow-wet Oregon road with her family. Then, in a blink, she fi nds herself watching as her own damaged body is taken from the wreck...

A sophisticated, layered, and heartachingly beautiful story about the power of family and friends, the choices we all make—and the ultimate choice Mia commands.

This book is really emotional I would cry and smile I fell in love it's all of the characters they are just to sweet.

i've watched the movie its a really sad movie.But it grabs your attention without you noticing and then all of a sudden your reading the book.

At first this may not grab your attention, but just keep on reading it. I'm sure you'll like it. Watch the movie after reading. Movies ruin books!!!

This book is really sad and emotional, I think that this is a really really true story. many people on earth is lonely no family member. When Mia was in the hospital she wasn't dead but then her soul was already not inside her body. Love is the most important thing in the world. love can make someone alive. Love makes everything better. I recommend this book to people who is sad and I think that this book will really help you and encourage.

The Book is very sad but it has great distription. And it ends very deeply heartbreaking and if you like reading books, that have a tragic acceident in it and you love true heart stories then you should get this book!!!!!

Can you imagine your life changing in the blink of an eye? One second, one split second and it's all gone. Mia was just a normal teenage girl that morning, she had her mother, her father, and her brother Teddy. Almost all of that was taken from Mia that snow day when the truck hit her car. Have you ever just been somewhere at the wrong time? In the book If I stay by Gayle Forman, 17 year old Mia was. And it changed her life forever. Most of the book takes place in the hospital, on what was going to be an awesome snow day. The antagonist is The coma that Mia is in, and the protagonist is Mia, because she is always changing and well developed throughout the story. One major conflict in this book is the fact that Mia can see everything that's happening while she's laying on her hospital bed. She sees her best friend, boyfriend, and family. But no one can see her, feel her, or hear her. Another conflict in the book is that mia has to make one of the biggest decision she will ever make. Would you want to wake up an orphan, or die and leave behind so many people who love you? There is always that one person in your life that has an impact on the decisions you make. For Mia, that person was her grandfather. The soothing words he said to her, for a second made her feel like she had something to live for. “It's okay if you want to stop fighting.” This book can make you cry, and it's definitely a must read!

I love that book it is the best#love

This book is talking about love, love is the strongest thing in the world that can even make a dead person alive. Mia, the a talented young girl, who have to make a big decision between her musical dreams at prestigious Juilliard or follow her heart to be with the love of her life, Adam, a rock singer. However, after a car accident that kills her parents and younger brother, everything has changed. While Mia was lying on the hospital bed, her soul was still alive, she knows everything that has happened to her family, she was so sad that she hopes she died with them too, which is when Mia was about to die, Adam, told her that she got in the Juilliard and sings a song that he wrote for her, then Mia felt the love and then she wakes up. Love, is really the strongest thing in the world, it hurts the most, the most powerful thing, the most complicated thing, the most simple thing, the most happy thing, and the most beautiful thing, it is everything, love is everything on earth. I really enjoy reading this book.
