Review: Where She Went by Gayle Forman

Released: April 5, 2011
Publisher: Dutton Juvenile
Rated: YA
Buy Where She Went

It's been three years since Adam's love saved Mia after the accident that annihilated life as she knew it. . .and three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever.
Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard's rising star and Adam is L.A. tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future - and each other.
Told from Adam's point of view in the spare, powerful prose that defined If I Stay, Where She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope and the flame of rekindled romance.

What I thought:

 I didn't think it could get any more emotional. I was wrong. Adam's story is even more amazing. I wanted to wrap him up in a hug. He's dealt with so much and life is wearing on him. It was heartbreaking, reading his story. But a very amazing story.

We see Adam's tale, from three years after the incident. It was a good move, I thought, for a story. It's in the same format, current day with flash backs. The Hall's were Adam's second family, and I wasn't surprised to see him hurt by the loss. He's such a great character, he feels so much.

From the first book, to this one, I still couldn't help but think back to Teddy. I don't think I can even think of Teddy without wanting to cry. I kept wishing in the first one for him to be okay, but in this, knowing, it still made it hard. I have a feeling I will be thinking, dwelling, on this series for a few days, Teddy in particular.

Loved this series. It is probably one of the best I have read this year. You definitely need to take the time to look into these books. Simply amazing.

Great review! I'm totally with you, I liked this one even more than If I Stay. And Teddy was definitely the worst part for me. So devastating. Definitely sticks in your mind!
