February 2015 Book of the Month Best-selling Gayle Forman’s I Was Here explores the complicated repercussions of suicide on all those who are left behind. Cody and Meg have been best friends forever. Surely they have no secrets between them? But when Cody receives an email from Meg describing the horrific way she has just taken her own life she begins a journey of discovery that shows her just how little she knew her friend. Cody travels to Meg’s university to collect all her belongings and begins to unravel small leads – including an encrypted file- which bring her to knowing and understanding her friend better.
This characteristically powerful novel follows eighteen-year-old Cody Reynolds in the months following her best friend's shocking suicide. As Cody numbly searches for answers as to why Meg took her own life, she begins a journey of self-discovery which takes her to a terrifying precipice, and forces her to question not only her relationship with the Meg she thought she knew, but her own understanding of life, love, death and forgiveness.
From the bestselling author of If I Stay - now a YA blockbuster film.
