A few months ago, I was floored when I listened to If I Stay as an audiobook. It was simple but beautiful, touching in a way that not many YA stories are. When I heard that there would be a sequel, I kept my eyes open. And so, when Where She Went came up on NetGalley, I jumped at the opportunity to read it. It was quick – I read the entire thing in a few hours in one evening.
If I Stay was very different from most of the novels that I read, even the young adult ones. The entire story is told from Mia’s perspective, and most of it takes place after the collision that takes the lives of her parents and brother. And yet, she’s unconscious. Or, at least, her body is.
