This title is soon to be a major film starring Chole Grace Moretz.

'Just listen,' Adam says with a voice that sounds like shrapnel.' I open my eyes wide now. I sit up as much as I can. And I listen. 'Stay,' he says. Everybody has to make choices. Some might break you. For seventeen-year-old Mia, surrounded by a wonderful family, friends and a gorgeous boyfriend decisions might seem tough, but they're all about a future full of music and love, a future that's brimming with hope. But life can change in an instant. A cold February morning ...a snowy road ...and suddenly all of Mia's choices are gone. Except one. As alone as she'll ever be, Mia must make the most difficult choice of all.

If I Stay Press Reviews

This sensitively written story of the power of love and loss presses all the right buttons ... The intensity of feelings and tragic suddenness with which life changes will strike a chord with teenagers and the young at heart. Read it, as they say, and weep
Daily Mail

This is a wonderful, beautiful book; so gripping, so wise and oh, so heart-breakingly painful A compulsive read This is a haunting and heartbreaking novel reminiscent of The Lovely Bones ... Impossible to put down Bookseller

For the first few pages, If I Stay comes across like a light hearted story about a teenager, her love life and her kooky family, but from the moment Forman hits you with the devastatingly detached description of the aftermath of the crash, you know you've picked up something special The Bookbag
