If I Stay

BOOK: "If I Stay"By: Gayle Forman



The theme of the book was letting the readers know that even when everything in life seems okay, things can change in a instant. In the book Mia says "Isnt it amazing how life is one thing and in an instant it becomes something else.?" Mia can relate to this in many ways from the accident to breaking up with Adam. I can relate to this and probaly so can everyone else. I picked this quote because it makes sense about how life is taken for granted and how you should cherish every moment. But even when things get turned upside down you should still find a way to keep the hope and stay strong.


Theres two main charcters in the book named Adam and Mia. Mia's parents, little brother, her bestfriend and grandparents are also in the book, Adam's band is as well.

The book takes place in Portland Oregon, hometown of both Mia and Adam.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a fictional love story with drama. It catches your attention in the first couple pages. It really gives the reader an emotional connection to the story that everyone can relate to.
