Where She Went- Gayle Forman

Written By: Kellie - Sep• 10•11

Synopsis: It’s been three years since the devastating accident . . . three years since Mia walked out of Adam’s life forever.

Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard’s rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia’s home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future – and each other. -Goodreads

Review: Somehow this book was completely different than what I expected. I’m not sure how I convinced myself of it, but I went into this book expecting something different (the same story as ‘If I Stay’ but told from Adam’s perspective) and that made for a really cool reading experience. Sometimes you need to have your expectations shaken up and just go into a book willing to take things as they come. So, it may not have been what I thought I was getting into, but I loved this story.

While part of the credit goes to meeting Adam in the first book, he is unquestionably a character with a strong voice. Right away the reader gets pulled into his head space and into all the drama and emotion that comes with him and because you know his history you are rooting his his happiness right from the first paragraph.

While not that original Adam’s unhappiness is hard to relate too. Oh, poor rock star, just wants to be normal. But the story is still well done and you can understand how someone like Adam wouldn’t be cut out for the high-flying celebrity lifestyle. Either way the plot matters a lot less than the emotion that is behind every thought and action.

The scenes between Mia and Adam are perfect. In the first book we only got to see the two of them interacting through flashbacks so you always knew how things were going to end up. Now there is a real history between these two characters and anything can happen… teen fiction at its best!

If you read and enjoyed the first book then it is pretty much mandatory that you read this one as Mia and Adams story just isn’t finished with one book.
