    There are two kinds of books those that you finish reading and leave you with fleeting memories of the attractive hero the silly heroine and the overall storyline or perhaps all you noted was the glaring plot holes inconsistencies ridiculousness or flat characters At any rate it’s a book that you read either like or dislike but no sooner than you have turned the last page it is out of sight and out of mind Then there is the other kind of book that will touch your heart or awaken a lingering memory or a potential fear that will haunt your mind so that even long after you’ve fallen asleep your unconscious self is still wading through the details Your dreams will be fitful and when you finally awaken you will find yourself tangled up in sheets with puffy swollen eyes from tears that you shed when you weren’t even aware enough to know you were crying If I Stay is the latterMia is eighteen and has the kind of family any of us would pray to be born to and the kind of boyfriend that can only exist in the fictitious world Further she is a gifted musician and is about to be accepted into the prestigious Julliard Mia has a choice she can follow her love of music go to Julliard and accomplish her cellist dreams or she can stay with her family and the love of her life and follow her heart Either way she has something to gain and something to lose Then one fateful morning Mia’s world is turned on its head and life as she knows it changes The one thing that remains the same is the question that Mia has asked herself for the past few months should I go or should I stay?In art the brightest colors appear beside the darkest of lines and in this book the most endearing tender and happy moments are surrounded by grief so palpable that you will laugh through your tears and sob with a smile If I Stay demonstrates the kind of beauty that can only exist alongside despair and shines all the for it It is filled with happiness and sorrow laughter and tears birth and death love and loss By writing a book filled with parallels Forman proves that life has no opposite and thus leaves readers with an overwhelming since of joy and hope despite tears and grief that they are bound to feelUpdate I just re read this book for the forth time and it continues to devastate and delight me
