If I Stay Review

If I StayIf I Stay by Gayle Forman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I'll admit, I was little wary about reading this book. I'd read the synopsis and a couple reviews (careful reviews, I fear spoilers!) and I wasn't sure how I'd handle it emotionally. I have the potential to play the big, blubbering idiot when it comes to some books. And yet, I was very happy with how the book turned out. It instantly draws you in and is an amazing page-turner.

Some books are built on plot, some on characters. Forman has amazing characters. The time frame for this book is extremely short but you get immense amount of characterizations and personality from all her characters nonetheless. I loved them all so much. I most certainly applaud Gayle Forman for the wonderful people she created.

More importantly for a teen fiction, the story covers very important things in life that we all must learn at some point, like how difficult coping can be and how important the people around you really are.
