Book Review for: If I Stay by Gayle Forman

As a frequent book reader, I have read a lot of books that have intrigued me a lot, but the book that has had a strong impact on me and my life was ‘If I Stay’ by Gayle Forman.

This book is about a girl named as Mia Hall, a talented young cellist who thought the most difficult decision she’d ever have to make would be whether to pursue her musical dreams at prestigious Juilliard or follow her heart to be with the love of her life, Adam, who is a rock singer and guitarist. However, life changes in an instant for young Hall after a car accident puts her in a coma. During an out-of-body experience, she must decide whether to wake up and live a life far different than she’d imagined. The choice is hers if she can go on.

This book has taught me to be happy whenever I can and simply make good memories. While Hall was in an out-of-body experience, she had flashbacks about how beautiful her life used to be and knew it’ll never be the same. That was the part where my heart ached in sadness, and I almost cried. That was one of those moments I realized how much I love and care about my family, how much they mean to me, they’re priceless.

It was a good thing that I was in my room while reading this or else my family would’ve seen me crying and that would’ve been embarrassing!

3/5 Stars ⭐⭐⭐
