Teen Fiction

Finished May 12
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
Mia is seventeen and has a wonderful life ahead of her. An accomplished cellist, she has recently auditioned for Juilliard and is waiting to hear back. Her boyfriend, Adam, is part of a band, which is really starting to take off. She has a best friend, Kim, who supports her and abets her in their escapades.
She has supportive parents, and an adoring younger brother as well as other caring family members.
She knows she has choices ahead of her regarding music and love that she dreads having to deal with, but suddenly she is thrust into a situation from which she has only one choice, stay or go, and what she decides will be life-changing either way.
This has a unique perspective, all happening within a very compressed time frame. Stephanie is a girl who is both lucky and talented and knows it. But now she is torn over the decision that only she can make.
Teens, particularly girls, will like this book. A strong character and strong emotions will draw them into this page-turner.
