This sequel to If I Stay is written from Adam's point of view. It is three years after the accident that took Mia's family away from her. Read it to see if Adam and Mia's love can transcend this tragedy. Gayle Forman writes well in the voice of a guy. If you enjoy her take on writing as a guy, try Patricia McCormick's My Brother's Keeper where she does a wonderful job of writing as a teenage boy.

Not as good as the first book; gets better as it progresses.

I enjoyed how this book was written from the perspective of Adam unlike the first one.

A great follow up to "If I Stay". It showed how life goes on after a tragedy and how happiness stays.

I recommend everyone to listen to the audiobook of Where she Went!
It is just as much of an emotional punch to the stomach as its predecessor, though more of an angsty, bitter kind than a weepy one. And Dan Bittner was icing on the cake as the narrator.
Those songs from Collateral Damage were amazing. It really makes you think of the author's talent when you want to hear them in RL. They were so simple yet so full of raw and unfiltered emotions, so relevant to the chapters, to Adam's emotional and mental state, to the past, present and future as he saw it. In just a few sentences, they brought it all together perfectly.

Such a heartbreaking and beautiful novel! It was good to hear Adam's voice after hearing Mia's in the first. It was sad but beautiful to see the way Mia and Adam fell apart and grew back together.

"It's been three years since the tragic car accident that landed Adam Wilde's girlfriend, Mia, in a coma. In the meantime Mia has recovered, cut ties with Adam, and fulfilled her dream of attending The Juilliard School to study cello. Adam has stayed on the West Coast and risen to stardom with his band, but his grief over losing Mia has dulled his love of music and left him bitter. When Adam and Mia have a chance reunion in New York City, it's painful - and electric. Told by Adam instead of Mia, who narrated the previous, bestselling book If I Stay, this emotionally intense and deeply romantic story unfolds in the course of a single night. Read with tissues nearby."

Where She Went, by Gayle Forman, is the sequel to her novel, If I Stay, and continues the story of Mia Hall, a beautiful cellist, and Adam Wilde, an aspiring rock musician. The story is told within the space of about a day, with back-flashes and memories intertwined with present day, and leads readers through heartache, desire, and frustration. It is a beautifully written story that is romantically believable and leaves the readers wanting to know more.

Lacks both the heart and soul of the first book. Ultimately it's hard to care what happens to the protagonist.

Every morning I wake up and I tell myself this: It's just one day, one twenty-four hour period to get yourself through.
