I cried. My heart broke and came back together again. I loved reading every single word of this book. There is so much emotions and unspoken regrets that punches you in the stomach. The story is captivating from the very beginning, never letting you go.

Adam and Mia are both great characters with much history and love. The story was great as it was being told from Adam's point of view. I loved getting inside his heart and his head. I loved watching Mia as she is now. So much has happened in the past few years that to be able to see it all come together was genius.

What else can I say that hasn't already been said? This book is simply divine all the way through. If you have not picked up this book you should. It will break you heart like no other book has before, but if will also leave you smiling.

Ms. Forman wrote an unforgettable, undeniably, perfect book. It was perfect. The writing, the plot, and both amazing characters had my eyes running with tears and a heart yearning for love.

There was some minor cursing and a sex scene (vague).

Where She Went is a sequel to If I stay by Gayle Forman. When I read If I Stay I was extremely on edge preparing for the sequel, but reading the sequel, it wasn't exactly the ending that I was expecting. I don't really think that Where She Went was as good as If I stay because Where She Went was just about how Adam was making tough decisions about whether he should keep having one night stands with groupies, date the movie star Bryn, or get back together with his highschool sweetheart Mia. In the beginning of the book it explains that Adam didn't ever really know why Mia just dumped him and moved away to attend Juilliard after she said she would stay with him; She did this because she was tired of getting sympathetic looks from everyone after her reconstruction and leg surgery from being the lone survivor of the car crash that killed her two parents and her little brother. Where She Went didn't really catch my heart like If I Stay did. This book was told from Adam's point of view so it was a totally different experience, I think that Mia's point of view was a lot more interesting. 
I would recommend this book to anyone that just graduated from highschool or is going through some relationship difficulties. I don't think I would re read this book if given the chance, it didn't exactly catch my attention.

    I read the first book and really enjoyed it, and I was anxious to read the sequel. It took me forever to get through this book though. Nothing exciting was happening, and I didn't find myself wanting to read more. Everything that happened in this novel followed the typical love story, and I was really hoping that Where She Went would be different. I hate to say that I was disappointed, but the book was to much like the typical romance novel.

    This was not great

    It was not even close to being as good as If I Stay which wasn't all that great either. If I Stay movie was good but the books...ehh not the best. For me the movie is always better. The Fault In Our Stars is by far the best movie and book ever! Nothing can compare to TFIOS!!!

    Boring

    I read review that said this book could be read and understood without reading the first one...But that is false. I could not comprehend the story and it was so boring and all the characters were really whiny. Not a good read. Don't bother.

    Not as good as the first one

    Some characters got a bit stereotypical at times and were kind of annoying, but it wasn't a bad book. It wasn't like the first one, which I didn't want to put down until I finished it. There just wasn't a lot of suspense, and nothing too surprising happened.
