It's been three years since the devastating accident . . . three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever.
Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard's rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future - and each other.

Told from Adam's point of view in the spare, lyrical prose that defined If I Stay, Where She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance. - via GoodReads

4 Stars

I started Where She Went by Gayle Forman back in January and just finished in March. It took me a little over two months to read and I couldn’t even tell you why. I actually think it has to do with the fact that I found Adam really whiny in the first half of the book. I have a thing with whiny boys; Harry Potter in the Order of the Phoenix, Four in Allegiant, and now Adam in Where She Went.

The good news is that Adam redeems himself. There is no one moment for me that stands out. All of a sudden I just found that I really wanted to read this book. At that point I finished it rather quickly. We already know what happened to Mia and her family. Three years later, we pick back up. Almost everything has gone to shit for Adam and then fate steps in.

I do have to admit that Where She Went did not give me the same kind of feels that If I Stay did. I will say that by the end of it I was left with a nice fuzzy feeling and that’s almost as good.
