    It was super good. Although i was confused in places i loved it all the same. It shows you to be grateful for what you have, but be a little bit more grateful for what you lost.

                      If I Stay By Gayle Forman In the book “If I Stay” there are 2 main characters, Mia & Adam. The book takes place outside, and in a hospital. There is a very tense moment at the end. It is a young adult fiction. The book is about a girl (Mia) that likes a boy (Adam). Mia and her family get in a car crash, and the whole family dies except one person… Can you guess who it is? My favorite part in the book is when they get in a car crash and her soul takes over. When she is in the hospital nobody can see her soul. So she starts to freak out. I would recommend this book if you like relatable books or if you like book that make you tense up. This book took me about six days to read. I also watched the movie that went with it..
