If I Stay by Gayle Forman

I was ready to read book but needed a quick read. If I Stay is not only a great book but one you can read in few days. The book has a quick start, and within a few pages, the book already had me hooked. The author, Gayle Forman, also has a unique writing style of mixing flashbacks along with the present to keep the interest going as well. The book is about teenage girl, Mia, and her decision to live through what she has lost. Mia realizes things will never be the same but also takes in consideration what is best for her and the people in her life. The characters in the book are unraveled quickly and make you in fall in love with them from the start. If I Stay would be a great read if: you are into music, you are in need of a cry, and if you enjoy mild romance.
