We belong to the same clubone that strives to lure kids into the world of reading. IF I STAY is a great book to both grab reluctant readers and to give experienced ones something with depth.
At the start of the book, Mia is facing typical teen dilemmas: stay with her boyfriend or pursue her dream of studying cello in New York. But when a drive with her family turns tragic, a critically injured Mia finds herself outside her body. The reader is right there with her as she's rushed to hospital and thinks back on her now-irrevocably changed life, pondering the most important decision she'll ever make.
Both dramatic and funny, romantic and edgy, IF I STAY has appealed across the ages and spectrum to lovers of drama, romance, and fantasy, bringing many reluctant readers into the fold.
