If I Stay
by Gayle Forman
Realistic Fiction

Review #1
* * * * * Stars (Amazing!)
An aspiring violin player, Mia, dreams of one day playing at top locations around the world. Her family is as supportive as they can be, teaching her valuable lessons every day. Then, suddenly, a terrible incident occurs, and leaves Mia struggling to find answers which even she doesn’t know.

Review #2
* * * Stars (Pretty good)
A girl named Mia and her family (mom, dad, and brother Teddy) get in a car crash. Her brother, mom, and dad all die and Mia’s body is in “grave” condition. She is in a coma, but her “spirit” is out of her body.  While she undergoes operations, memories go through her about her family and her boyfriend, Adam. And when Adam demands to see her, she finally wakes up. I liked the descriptions of the hospital, but I didn’t like all the little flashbacks (memories).

Review #3
* * * * * Stars (Amazing!)
Mia is 17 and recently lost her parents and brother in an accident. She has a decision whether she wants to fight for her life or let go. Yet this isn’t even the full story. This book was very interesting to read and I easily got caught up in it. I would definitely suggest this book for young teenage readers. 

Review #4
* * * * Stars (Great!)
A girl named Mia gets in a car crash with her family. She is in between dying and being alive. She gets to decide if she dies or stays. I liked this book because I liked all of the memories Mia remembers throughout the book.
