If I Stay by Gayle Forman Book Summary

The critically acclaimed, bestselling novel from Gayle Forman, author of Where She Went, Just One Day, and Just One Year.
Soon to be a major motion picture, starring Chloe Moretz!
In the blink of an eye everything changes. Seventeen ­year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall what happened afterwards, watching her own damaged body being taken from the wreck. Little by little she struggles to put together the pieces- to figure out what she has lost, what she has left, and the very difficult choice she must make. Heartwrenchingly beautiful, this will change the way you look at life, love, and family. Now a major motion picture starring Chloe Grace Moretz, Mia's story will stay with you for a long, long time.

If I Stay (Gayle Forman) Book Reviews

100%Beautifully written, I am not a big reader myself but this book I can't put down ❤️.Score: 5/5

If I stayA really good book but annoying end.Score: 5/5

If I stayVery good book, a little bit of sadness. all in all a good book..Score: 5/5

If l stayI really loved this book. And usually I am really picky about the books that I get but I absolutely loved this book. I would really recommend you reading it. It is one of those books that once you start reading them you can’t stop.(the book is better than the movie).Score: 5/5


So amazing!❤️😭When I read this book I read it in like one weekend. It's so compelling and makes me think about how you really shouldn't take your family and friends for granted..Score: 5/5

EVERYONE DONT GET THIS! READ BELOW!!Okay. I love this book. But it's roughly $5 on here. Right? Well. If you download the "kindle" app and the "Amazon" app. You can buy the books (kindle edition) on Amazon and they appear on the kindle app. You can get these apps on any thing. Not just the kindle. Now. You are probably wondering "why would I download 2 apps and make 2 accounts, just to buy a book when I could get it on here?" And good point. However, the books on Amazon are only $1-$3! Not $5! But whatever. Your choice. Waste your money. Not my problem....Score: 5/5

:/This was an amazing book the first couple of pages, but once Mia got into the accident it went completely down hill from there. The book was boring to say the least, I had great expectations for this book and it let me down..Score: 2/5

WonderfulI love love loved this book. I definitely recommend the sequel to it..Score: 5/5

10/10 romance novelI would 120% recommend this book to any young adult readers. this book shows the struggle of an unfortunate situation and the power love can have over someone. this book is gorgeously written as is the sequel. this book is about a girl who suffers a near fatal car accident whilst everyone else in the car dies. she ends up in a coma and experiences a literal out of body experience, and now must decide whether she will stay and go on with life or end it all there..Score: 5/5

THERE IS A 2nd BOOKI just I should clear this up for all the people who are giving it a bad review because of how it ended!! There is a 2nd book called Where She Went. It's what happens after she wakes up. Although it's in Adam's POV. Both books are amazing. I just because you don't like a ending, it doesn't make the book bad. Do some research before you make a review. If you want to know what happened to Mia read the 2nd book..Score: 5/5

Amazing Idea, Poorly ExecutedThe concept for this book, in my opinion, is great. If only it had been excecuted better. I was bored. I felt no emotional connection to the characters and I couldn’t get past the words and actually into the story. The ending was abrupt and left me wishing there was more there. This could have been an amazing story. But, sadly, it is not..Score: 2/5

DisappointedI bought this book and wanted to read it because the movie came out. I still haven't seen the movie since I like to read the books first. The entire book I had a lot of trouble keeping up with everything going on. There were a lot of flashbacks and the writing was choppy. I never felt emotionally attached to the book and then it ended so abruptly. I expected the story to keep going, but then there was nothing and I was left confused. The story itself wasn't terrible, I just feel like it could have been written differently..Score: 1/5

Great book!I understand Mia, and I love how she flashes back to let us get to know her and the characters more. To everyone writing reviews about not knowing what's going on, read the book again and READ THE SECOND BOOK. You will understand. Thank you for your time..Score: 5/5

Will Make You CryI read If I Stay because I had watched the movie trailer and decided to read the book before I watched the movie. I haven't yet seen the movie but plan to soon. The plot especially towards the end really tugs at your emotions and makes you think, what would I do if I had to choose? Mia is such an amazing character. She really tells you her story in a way that makes you feel sympathy for her. She is faced with an impossible choice, and this novel really changed the way I view life. Because Mia lost everything she thought she would have forever. Definitely recommend this book..Score: 5/5

Waiting for nothingIf you enjoy books with no purposeful plot line, this is the book for you. I spent the whole time waiting for something exciting to happen, only to have it end abruptly. It leaves much to be desired because it is simply uneventful..Score: 2/5

FantasticI personally really enjoyed the book, and makes me excited to see the movie. And once I found out there was sequel I was thrill. But personally the first one is better when it comes to plot. I see all these bad reviews saying how it had a bad ending or it was a cliffhanger but have Yall read the sequel I think not..Score: 4/5

AMAZINGThis book is wonderful. Don't read the reviews that say the ending stopped. It continues in the next book, duhhhh.Score: 5/5

OML this was sooo goodOkay I seriously loooooved this book but honestly it was kind of sad (*SPOILER) like how she had completely NO ONE left in her instant family to celebrate her getting in to julliard. Like I’m not kidding abt this I almost cried (*ANOTHER SPOILER) when she saw all her family sprawled gruesomely across the road 😥😱. But above all that I still loved it. Very inspirational! What I find funny is that I didn’t even know there was a movie for this book. Honestly? I couldn’t really see anyone turning this into a movie. Idk why. But it was actually impressive. Y’all should see it, but definitely after u read the book..Score: 5/5

MehHonestly, this book was not very good. I really didn't like how Mia would go and rehash her memories for so long. Eventually they got boring. It also was sad. If you couldn't handle TFIOS, don't read this..Score: 2/5

If I StayThis is an overall very well written book it has been very hard to find a good book i have finally found one and when people say they hate the ending thats because they have not read the other books in the series.Score: 5/5

EhA lot of people like this book. I don't. It wasn't face paced and when you were supposed to cry I didn't. It's good if you are a sensitive person but if you didn't cry for tfios then don't get it. Too many emotions I don't get and TOO descriptive. Too many flash backs and stories that are - some useless. It's a good read if you're sensitive but personally, too much description, didn't want to read on. I think the movie is better.Score: 3/5

Amazing BookI would give this book a 4 star rating because it is a very touching and interesting. One of my favourite parts of the book is when she says "I don't know exactly what's happened to me, and for the first time today, I don't really care. I shouldn't have to care. I shouldn't have to work this hard. I realize now that dying is easy. Living is hard." I would recommend this book to anyone who likes sad story's.

I don't really like to read but this book is good I had to read it and it's my favourite book, the best book I have ever read..Score: 4/5

Very Lovely BookI downloaded this book after seeing it on a "Read It Before It Becomes a Movie" list. I thought that the concept of the book sounded interesting, but was a little hesitant as it was reviewed as more of a teenagers book (I'm 23). I'm so happy that I decided to give it a chance. It's a very well written book with a great story line. I'm sure anyone at any age would enjoy the book and what it has to offer. My only complaint about the book is that I wish it was longer!.Score: 5/5
