All the pain of love and loss is crammed into this powerful and passionate novel about two talented teenagers from the bestselling author of If I Stay. Adam’s making it big as a rock star but he’s still haunted by how Mia ended their high school relationship. Having never come to terms with it, it still fuels his songs. When he gets the chance to meet up with Mia again, will he be able to find some kind of peace? Adam and Mia set out on a challenging and touching journey of discovery. Does first love ever die?


Where She Went by Gayle Forman

If you had a second chance at first love ...would you take it? 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 Julliard's rising star and Adam is LA 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 futureoand 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.
