Summary (cr: goodreads)

It's been three years since the devastating accident . . . three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever.

Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard's rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future-and each other.

Told from Adam's point of view in the spare, lyrical prose that defined If I StayWhere She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance.

My Review: (also in goodreads)

This book is in Adam's point of view. I was surprised at the time skip at first, especially that happened since the last scene in If I Stay is the moment Mia woke up. I was a little confused on how everything turned out but was expecting it a little bit. Like the first book it juggled from memories to the present moment. I teared up at the reunion and was happy at how they resolved everything. What gave me goosebumps is when Mia told Adam that she knew about his vow to make her stay.

Till the next read...
