If I Stay

Publisher: Definitions

Mia has everything going for her – a happy, eccentric family, a cool boyfriend and an audition at the prestigious Juilliard music school. But one snowy morning, a four-ton pickup truck obliterates the rest of her family and Mia's life is left hanging by a thread.

Outside her shattered body, Mia watches her heartbroken grandparents, her best friend Kim and Adam, her distraught boyfriend, visit her traumatised, unconscious self. Ultimately it is up to Mia whether she lives or dies. Music, memories, love and friendship inform her final, difficult decision. A beautifully written book with moments of real sadness, hope, laughter, tragedy and joy, which make you appreciate all the little things you love, as your eyes brim with tears.
