Synopsis from Goodreads:
I think the only few things that really kept me going was,
1. The characters were cute.
2. The book is a very short read.
Oh, Adam. Can I have him, please? He’s SUPER DUPER HYPER MEGA ULTRA effort. *thumbs up* That pizza delivery money thingy, and the hand-warming action, ohmycrappola. He’s sweet, caring, understanding and supportive. Okay, the list goes on.
Kim, the awesome friend! I love the backstory of her friendship with Mia. It was hilarious, cute, and amazing. They were just meant-to-be (in friendship language, okay.) Teehee. I love the way she thinks, and the things that she says to Mia. Those were the ones that hit closest to home, for me. They were really true, especially about the bonds and all those stuff. She’s one of the friends that I’d really love to have.
But all the negative thoughts I had for this book evaporated when I reached the end of the book. That ending? AWESOME. I’m not going to say anything about the ending (yuck, spoilers,) but it’s REALLY AMAZING. That love-hate relationship I had while reading If I Stay strengthened my feelings towards the ending even more.
If I Stay is a roller-coaster ride that conveys a story about family, friendship, love, and making life-changing choices. You should go grab a copy of this, and READ IT NOWWWWWW. Go, go, go!
