IF I STAY by Gayle Forman

Mia's family is killed in a car accident that leaves her in critical condition in the Intensive Care Unit. She realizes she has the choice to stay (live) or go (die). Will she join her parents or her boyfriend and pursue her love of music?

Although the end of the book is predictable, you can't help but get caught up in Mia's heartbreaking story. It sends the message that keeping hope and staying strong is always important -- and to stay true to yourself. This book is a great read and hard to put down.

For Mia, a 17-year-old girl,
one single moment has changed everything. An accident has changed her whole life. She must now decide whether to fight for her life or surrender to death after she is badly injured in a car accident. Mia is able to watch her body being rushed to the hospital, and her observations of this process are interspersed with memories of her friends or family. Her thoughts wander from her love of classical music to her family to her relationship with her boyfriend.

This is a great book that teaches you the value of life. It shows that memories are incredible things, and once they are permanently gone they never come back.
