This book could have been great but it was almost embarrassing to read at times I know that sounds pretty mean but c'monI can appreciate any novel that mentions Kathleen Hannah and Courtney Love in positive context it also earns points for being set near Portland but I can't respect a novel that is full of cliches unrealistic characters and CHEESE I almost had to stop reading when one character played the other character's body like a guitar and I actually did stop reading for awhile when the girl brought out her damn cello bow and started running it along her boyfriend's body Seriously Would this ever really happen I know this is fantasy but the author doesn't write it like it is supposed to be a dreamThe parents were the worst part of the book for me They were the parents absolutely every teenager in the Western world wishes that they had cool young know music laidback had wild young adulthoods act like teenagers and are just so damn awesome it hurts There really is no happy medium in teen fiction parents are either antagonists or sidekicks these daysThe premise was a great one being able to choose between life or death And it could've been awesome But this book was sadly not awesome it was poorly written and cheesy

I was actually uite shocked to find that this book did not even make me shed one tear Weird huhUnless you count tears of boredom Other people THIS BOOK OMG THE FEELS I’M SOBBING UNCONTROLLABLY Me Wait where was the part where I was supposed to cryDespite what you’re probably thinking I did not base this review on whether or not I would cry I gave it two stars because it did not affect me in any way Rather it bored me Other than the fact that I was bored to tears I had several major issues with If I StayFor one I failed to empathize with a vast majority of the characters The connection just wasn't there slightly contributing to my disliking of this book Identifying with characters is extremely important for me as a reader especially with these types of books I did not appreciate Mia’s emotionless voice which I know was deliberate on the author’s part because it did not fit this sort of story The characters in this book were much too perfect It was palpable from that first view spoiler and only hide spoiler

I played the violin for five years and the viola for three It is the piano that only lasted for one year My older brother and I began our lessons together when I was nine My brother was a smart kid but he didn't know it then It didn't help that his little sister was extremely competitive precocious and bratty I think he always believed he didn't have much going for him but boy he has it where it countsBack then I thought I was so much smarter than him and taking up the piano was another chance for me to prove that Unlike my brother who had never played an instrument before I could sight play and was already studied in the necessary music theory aspects from the violinAnd in form I was better than him For a while Effectively speaking I always was always going to be better at him in the technical arena But he was better where it counted When it came to the heart of the music bringing a piece alive and making it beautiful I was completely outclassed I played like a robot and he played with his soulThis book makes me regret that now than I've ever regretted it before in my life If I Stay is a beautifully written character driven novel about a girl choosing between life and death It was also one of the best narrated audiobooks I have ever listened to Mia's body is in ICU and she is waiting to die As the events from her car crash unfold she examines her relationships with everyone to determine whether or not it's worth staying or dying peacefully from her crashThere were parts of this novel that had me weeping my heart aching and my chest pounding with emotion Mia's voice her relationships her struggles and her pain are so brilliantly related to the audienceThe writing isn't perfect There are some parts that could have been a little polished Some paragraphs that probably needed another edit However the technical writing aspects are far and above overcompensated by the heart and soul of this novelThis novel is like Mia's Cello It is beautiful resounding and emotional Just as Mia can play Adam like her instrument so too can Forman play her audience strumming all the high and low notes with perfect breathtaking clarity Without a doubt Forman has it where it counts
