Book Review: Where She Went, by Gayle Forman

Where She Went is a sweet, satisfying book that answers the questions that were left at the end of If I Stay.

This book is told from Adam’s perspective three years after Mia’s accident. She has pretty much dumped him after leaving for Juliard. Adam’s band has been hugely successful, so much so that he is recognized everywhere he goes. Adam isn’t enjoying this life of fame as much as he thought he would.

So Adam runs into Mia, and that’s pretty much all I’m going to say. I will say that it didn’t end the way I expected, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t like the ending. 

I wouldn’t really recommend reading this if you haven’t read If I Stay. There’s just too much back story that will help you enjoy this one. They are both short books, and definitely worth reading. This is a “girl story” but I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to adults as well as teens.

  1. Nice review, Annette. You did a nice job describing this book and making it look interesting.

  2. I just bought If I Stay and I'm very much looking forward to reading that, but I continue to hear amazing things about this one, too. I might have to set aside time where I can read them close to each other.

  3. I have just started reading If I Stay, and I think that it deserves all the hype around it. I am glad that Where She Went answers all the questions from If I Stay. Great review!

  4. I'm now a huge Gayle Forman fan -- I love her writing style. Great review!

  5. I was really surprised by how much I liked If I Stay. I knew there was a sequel out there when I was reading it but I didn't know it was told through Adam's perspective. That sounds really intriguing. I don't know when I'll have time to read this one but I will definitely keep my out for it at the library.

  6. What, you didn't bawl your eyes out? It seems like everyone who's read this book said it brings out the waterworks. ;)
