CBR III Review #66: Where She Went by Gayle Forman
If you have read If I Stay I recommend picking up Where She Went. Mia barely survived the crash that killed her entire family. Everyone who was close to Mia had their lives change that day, as well as Mia but she never really understood what her boyfriend Adam was going through at the time. This novel follows Adam three years later after the tragic accident and you find out exactly how the accident created who Adam is today.
Adam is now in an extremely popular band but is extremely dissatisfied with life. Mia is a cellist graduating from Juilliard and is kicking off a world tour. Adam’s and Mia’s paths cross for the first time in 3 years and they both expose the hurt and betrayal they felt after the accident and you find out why Adam and Mia’s relationship came to a halting stop.
I really enjoyed If I Stay, so I loved catching back up with Adam and Mia. It’s hard to believe that two people from a small high school in the middle of the country have become renowned musicians but sometimes you have to let believability slide.
