If I Stay

If I Stay - Gayle Forman 6/18/12 ** Wow! I found an ARC of this on my desk nearly a year ago (my husband's not-so-subtle way of saying I should read it). I finally started it (and finished it) today. At 9:30p.m. I crawled into bed, figuring I'd read a chapter or two before going to sleep. At 12:45 a.m. I finished it down with tears in my eyes.

An ethereal being (not a ghost) of Mia tells this story in flashbacks while she decides whether she's going to live after having been in a horrific car accident with her family. A very moving tale of family & love and all the reasons why one would want to live, as well as some very compelling reasons to let go.
