Summary (cr: goodreads)

The critically acclaimed, bestselling novel from Gayle Forman, author of Where She WentJust One Day, and the forthcoming Just One Year

On a day that started like any other,

Mia had everything: a loving family, a gorgeous, admiring boyfriend, and a bright future full of music and full of choices. In an instant, almost all of that is taken from her. Caught between life and death, between a happy past and an unknowable future, Mia spends one critical day contemplating the only decision she has left. It is the most important decision she'll ever make.

Simultaneously tragic and hopeful, this is a romantic, riveting, and ultimately uplifting story about memory, music, living, dying, loving.

My Review: (also in goodreads)

It's mind-boggling how things happen in a heartbeat. That sometimes things happen, no matter how pain-inducing, no matter how heartbreaking it is, it was there to make us stronger. That is what happened to Mia and more...the decision to stay despite her loss is quite a burden. I can't believe how many times I teared up all throughout and that cliffhanger is tearing me to shreds.

Till the next read...
