Welcome to my book review of Where She Went” by Gayle Forman

Where She Went is a young adult contemporary. This is the second book in the duology by Gayle Forman. I have a full review on If I Stay, the first book. “Where She Went” is three years after “If I Stay” and in Adam, Mia’s boyfriends, perspective. We get to experience his emotions after the tragic crash and the aftermath of it all. Forman wrote in the same past and present format, jumping back and forth.

Rating this book difficult for me, just like the first book, but for different reasons. I’m going to rate it a 3.5 star, which is lower than the 4.5 I gave the first book. I did really like this book. Again, Gayle Forman wrote this book beautifully. Emotionally, I wasn’t as involved. I feel as if she could have written some of the emotional sides better. Adam is addicted to pills and smoking, and she showed that well in the beginning, but she didn’t show withdrawal. Over all, it was still a great, quick read. If you remember my first post introducing book reviews, a 3 star isn’t a bad review at all.

Have you read Where She Went” by Gayle Forman? What did you think? If you haven’t read the first book, don’t forget to check out my full review on If I Stay and decide if you want to read it!

In the meantime, keep calm and stay epic,
